Barbequed Pulled Pork

Simple, satisfying and flavorful! I put this recipe together in my crock pot one morning and after work served it to guests. The meat becomes very tender and rich in flavor. Served on a toasted kaiser bun along with a salad or chips and you will get rave reviews. With Christmas just around the corner I like to have a few quick no fuss meals for those busy days. This is a budget friendly meal as well.

Meat:
1 3-4 pound boneless pork roast
If roast has a string around it, cut it off. Place roast into crock pot.

Sauce: (it doesn't get easier than this)
-1 bottle regular flavored BBQ sauce (any brand you like)
-1/2 cup apple juice (I buy juice boxes to have on hand for this)
-1/2 small onion, chopped fine (optional)
-1/4 cup water
Stir together ingredients and pour over roast. Cover and cook for 8 hours on low heat.

Pulling the pork:
Take roast out of crock pot and put onto a cookie sheet. Cut away any fatty pieces you see. Using two forks shred meat into stringy pieces. Skim off any fat on the top of the sauce left in the crock pot, and return meat to the sauce. Stir well to combine with BBQ sauce. The meat will absorb the sauce.
Toast kaiser buns and pile the meat on top. Serve open face or sandwich style. I like to heat extra BBQ sauce to serve on the side. Enjoy with your favorite side salad. Serves 4-6.

  6. Pulled pork is my "company meal" and gives us great leftovers for days! I really like to BBQ it for an hour before sticking it in the oven or crock pot, and my favorite side dish is baked beans (lima, kidney, pinto, with bacon and brown sugar)...mmmmm.

  16. Kathy, will this work with a portion of those big pork tenderloins that I see at Costco? I hope that it will shred. Or should i use a different cut of pork?

  17. Lori, I have never used pork tenderloin for pulled pork. i use a pork roast, but I do often by my meat at Costco and I'm sure those pork tenderloins would be great.

    1. if you wanna use tenderloin, you will be using the leanest meat available, it will be more expensive too. I would recommend cooking on the pan (because it's tender enough, no need for low and slow method) let rest for five min's chop and throw back into pan with bbq sauce. Although much healthier, tenderloin is not necessary or tasty.
