Did you know that pulled pork is SUPER easy to make in your slow cooker? It tastes just as good as any I have had from BBQ restaurants.
Prep time is only a few minutes in the morning or night before, then just let it cook on low for about 8 hours, cool down, and pull it apart. The pulling is the most time consuming part. You can use pork shoulder, pork butt, or pork tenderloin. Pork tenderloin is the healthiest…but it also tastes the healthiest, if you know what I mean. I usually use pork shoulder and then when pulling it apart I throw away the fat.
I made fresh wheat rolls to serve it on, which I’m still experimenting with. The rolls were good but I’m not completely in love with them, and I only share my tried and true favorites with you guys.
What was amazing with it were collared greens. Oh my. I never knew how much I adored collared greens until recently. I’ll share that recipe with you soon.
Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe
adapted from My Recipes
- 3 lb boneless pork shoulder, pork butt, or pork tenderloin
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1-2 cups bottled or homemade barbecue sauce
- 1 tablespoons mustard
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Salt and pepper
Scatter chopped onion on the bottom of the slow cooker and place pork on top. Add broth, cover and cook on low until meat shreds easily, about 8 hours.
Remove meat from slow cooker and let cool. Skim fat from broth then scoop out 1 cup of broth. Discard the remaining liquid.
Once cooled enough to handle, shred pork and remove any fat.
Return pulled pork and 1 cup of broth to slow cooker and stir in 1-2 cups barbecue sauce to taste, mustard, and soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook until heated.
