Ingredients:

  • 6 (6-ounce) Idaho® baking potatoes
  • ½ boneless pork shoulder, (about 3 lbs.)
  • 1 bunch green onions, finely chopped till the white part
  • 1 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
BBQ Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 ½ cup ketchup
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 can, fire roasted tomatoes, diced (14.5 oz. can)
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • Tabasco sauce or favorite hot sauce (to taste)

Directions:

  1. Remove boneless pork shoulder from package.
  2. Place in slow cooker with 1 inch of chicken stock and 1 cup of BBQ sauce in bottom.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until fork tender.
  4. Remove from slow cooker and allow to cool slightly.
  5. Shred meat with two forks adding a few ounces of the cooking liquid back into the shredded meat to keep moistened. Keep warm
  6. Shredded BBQ Pork, as needed, about 4 oz. per potato
  7. Pierce Idaho® potatoes with a fork a few times; then place the washed and pierced Idaho® potatoes onto a cookie sheet and cook the potato in a preheated 350 oven for about an hour or until all potatoes are fully cooked.
  8. For the BBQ sauce, in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the vegetable oil. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute or until the garlic turns golden. Add the remaining sauce ingredients, including Tabasco sauce to taste, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer low about 15 minutes. Use either a blender to puree thoroughly or a blender wand in the pan

Notes:

For serving:
  1. Slice Idaho® potatoes lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, other side; fluff with fork.
  2. Top each potato evenly with pulled pork, shredded cheddar cheese evenly over the 6 Idaho® potatoes and place back into oven to melt the cheese.
  3. Add a few ounces more pulled pork to center and mounded, of each plate per each Idaho®
  4. Then add each melted cheese Idaho® potato to each mound before serving and drizzle BBQ sauce liberally and sprinkle green onions to garnish. Serve immediately.
