BBQ Pork Sandwiches

Source: Allrecipes
1 (14 oz) can beef broth
3 pounds boneless pork ribs
1 (18 oz) bottle bbq sauce

Pour can of beef broth into slow cooker, and add boneless pork ribs. Cook on high heat for 4 hours, or until meat shreds easily. Remove meat, and shred with two forks. It will seem that it’s not working right away, but it will.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Transfer the shredded pork to a Dutch oven or iron skillet, and stir in bbq sauce.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 mins or until heated through.

Super Easy! Everyone loved them, included me which is a lot to say for someone who isn't a huge meat eater.

1 pkg frozen Texas Rolls (Rhodes Brand)
1.5-2 lbs hamburger
2 bags of shredded cabbage
1 medium to large yellow onion, chopped
All Spice

Thaw rolls according to package directions. Cook hamburger and onion until brown and drain grease. Add shredded cabbage, all spice, salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat and cover until cabbage is tender. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Drain and cool. Spray cookie sheets (will probably take about 4) with Pam. When meat is cool and dough is thawed; roll rolls flat and fill each with two heaping tablespoons of meat/cabbage mixture. Pinch shut and place on cookie sheets seam side down. Leave plenty of room b/t as dough will rise. Let set to raise - about 1-2 hours until dough has raised to double in size. Bake at 30 degress 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with butter. Remove from cookie sheet to continue cooling. Store or freeze in plastic bags. Can reheat in microwave, toaster oven, or oven. I put cheese on mine.
