Barbeque Pork Two Ways
Easy and delicious! Pork shoulder, slow-cooked or simmered on the stovetop with onion and spices. Serve hot in sandwich buns.

OH MAN IS THIS GOOD! I used a 5lb pork shoulder roast, doubled the recipe, put the FROZEN roast in the crock put and cooked about 11 hours. Shredded it and EVERYONE raved! Even my 12 year VERY VERY VERY picky nephew asked for seconds! I'm can hardly wait to make this again!
This recipe made my house smell just like a BBQ restaurant! I used boneless country style ribs and sliced diagonally, then packed the sugar VERY lightly and used 1 cup BBQ sauce and 1 cup ketchup. (I used the crockpot method). We ate our sandwiches on lightly toasted bolillo rolls with lots of dill pickle slices. These taste like the real deal, and would be a very low maintenance, low stress way to feed a crowd. We'll be using this again very soon!
I was very nervous about making this recipe...it just looked odd in the pot. I wish I hadn't listened to some of the other reviewers and cut back on the brown sugar. The finished result was great and was the hit of the party. Next time I will use the alloted amount of brown sugar. Yummy! thanks for the sharing the recipe!!!
Absolutely delish! I've made this 3 times and it comes out perfect every time. I did make one change. Instead of adding 2 cups of ketchup, I add 1 cup of barbeque sauce and 1 cup of ketchup to add some spice. 2 cups of ketchup was a bit too sweet for my family.
I seasoned my meat (pork loin & boneless ribs) with seasoning salt, garlic powder, pepper, Accent, and a touch of chili powder. In the sauce I added about 1/2 cup of commercial bbq sauce, an extra clove garlic, and about 2 t. liquid smoke. I cooked the night before in crock pot (smell was incredible) and refrigerated so I could skim grease off next day. Meat was very flavorful and tender.
When I made this for a Super Bowl party, we took it piping hot out of the crock pot and put it on buns. It was pretty good, but it didn't seem that special. When my husband went back for a midnight snack and reheated it, he ate it straight out of the bowl and couldn't stop raving about it! (He had three helpings!) The flavors blended together and the sauce thickened up once it had a chance to cool off. Next time I will take it out of the crock pot and let it cool down before serving. Hubby says this is a keeper!
Exquisite recipe. I used the slow cooker version with a 5lb. pork shoulder and made a little mistake by doubling pretty much everything. So for those of you who use a larger piece of meat, it isn't necessary to use that much ketchup/bbq sauce as it came a little too runny. And I did use half ketchup and half bbq sauce...tasted delicious. Wonderful on homemade hamburger rolls (recipe is also listed on All Recipes! :) )
OMG.....It amazes me that someone uses chicken breast to make a bbq pork recipe, and then isn't pleased with the results. This is a GREAT recipe just the way it is, but it's also very easy to customize. Add a few different spices or fruits to turn it into any ethnic flavor you like. Mexican...cumin and chiles, Italian...basil and fennil, Oriental...soy sauce and ginger, Polenesian...pineapple. Very versatile.
THIS WAS AWESOME. I USED A BONE IN PORK ROAST, ADDED A CAN OF BEEF BROTH AND LEFT IT ON LOW IN MY CROCKPOT FOR THE NIGHT. THE NEXT DAY I SHREDDED IT, PUT IT BACK IN THE CROCKPOT AND ADDED THE SAUCE. YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY.
I've made this a lot, and it's wonderful! Don't try to slice it until it's done. If it's cooked properly, it will just about fall off the bone on it's on. I also want to say, that if you aren't doing the recipe, why would you rate it at all, let alone rated it sub par? This recipe is for a PORK roast, not boneless skinless chicken breasts. They don't even compare, and can't really be cooked the same. It's NOT the recipe, so how can you review it??? Sorry, had to get that off my chest,lol. Anyway, back to the pork roast... As I was saying, don't shred it until it's done. I also add a little liquid smoke to mine to give it a more bbq flavor.
This was pretty good. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Not sure if I'll make it again. Taste was ordinary.
I am a professional caterer specializing in BBQ for the past 15 years. This is a great basic recipe for the stove top or crock pot. You might want to slow cook the pork with just some beer or broth (I prefer beer)and when finished remove the pork from the juice, pull the pork and add BBQ sauce. Depending on the amount of juice you may want to mix some back in to keep the pork very moist. I top this sandwich with our cole slaw. That's right, right on top of the pork. Yum
This was SOOO delicious! My entire family loved the smell that permeated my house (I cooked it using a slower cooker) and the sweet, sticky flavor of the final product. I followed the directions for the most part, although I used a heaping teaspoonful and a half of grainy djion mustard instead of the dry and used about a cup of beef stock since I was a little short on ketchup. I didn't slice the pork shoulder either and used a bone-in piece. I cooked it on high for a few hours because mine was still pretty frozen and then turned it down to low for the remaining hours. After shredding the meat (which was amazingly easy) I spooned the extra sauce over and mixed it in. I didn't want too much sauce, so I shredded the pork in a large serving bowl. No leftovers for the three of us!!
This was very moist and flavorful. I had a 7 1/2 lb pork shoulder picnic (bone in) that I used. I put the whole thing in the slow cooker. I wouldn't recommend this specific cut of meat as it was quite time consuming shredding it and yeilds a lot less meat than I thought it would. That said, it worked in a pinch and the taste was great! I had to add a about a cup of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce cause I didn't have quite enough ketchup for the amount of pork I had. It's very good and flavorful once you add the sauce back to the shredded pork. I still have alot of sauce left over. :)
My family loved this recipe. I used 1/2 bbq 1/2 catsup as recommended. If you're new to big hunks of pork, trim the fat if you're using pork shoulder.
Excellent recipe. My dad loves this and its like pulling teeth to get him to eat pork. I use bone in pork shoulder for this recipe and I simply take the meat of the bone and cut it into 2 inch chunks. Then I place everything, including the bone, into the crock pot and forget about it for a few hours. SO GOOD.
I love this recipe!!! I did a pulled pork day to raise money at work. Everyone signed up and loved this pork. I had to give them the recipe! I made a couple little changes though. I find that any Pork cut usually works as long as there is no bone. I used 2 cloves of garlic,2 tsp dry mustard, no salt (I try to cut it out when it is not necessary), and I used 3/4 cup ketchup, and 3/4 cup bbq sauce because I wanted more of a bbq flavour.
5 stars, this recipe was super simple and relatively quick for the stove top method. I followed this recipe to the letter and it was awesome. It took about 2 1/2 on the stove top, then I took the pork out and pulled it apart with two forks as suggested by other reviewers and then returned the pork to the sauce. Because I like a thicker sauce I cooked the sauce uncovered till I got it to reduce to the thickness I like, no cornstarch required :) Thanks for the recipe!
This recipe was amazing, by far the best bbq pork sandwich I have ever eaten, and my family loves it as much as I do! I have made this four or five times this month because my family asks for it, give it a try in the crock pot, you wont be disappointed!
Me likey. I also used 1 cup of ketchup and 1 cup of home made BBQ sauce. I cooked it in the crock and did NOT pre-cook and drain it like others suggested and it came out great. I just trimed the fat off before I threw it in the crock. -Big Jesse
This was an amazing recipe! The only change I made was I added a dash (aprox 1 T) of red wine vinegar because my husband likes the little bit of bite it gives. Yummy! I can't wait for leftovers tomorrow!
Great! Made with pork loin b/c it was on sale - threw all ingedients, including entire loin, plus lots of extra garlic and onion into crock pot in the morning before work. I shredded pork when I got home and I used more bbq sauce than ketchup and served it on toasted buns. Great leftovers too!
(Hubby review!) My wife just made this. It's delicious. Let it sit overnight and reheat it, that really brings out the flavour. She substituted 1 cup of BBQ sauce for some of the ketchup for a bit more zip!
I recently made this recipe with a few changes based on the other reviews. Since I threw this together before before work for the sake of time I left the pork whole, fat side up. When I got home from work, I literally peeled the fat layer off (gross i know) and just stirred it with a wooden spoon and it literally fell apart. After breaking the pork apart I turned the cooker to high with the lid off to allow the sauce thicken up a bit. I also used 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 BBQ sauce and about 1tbsp of honey to give it that extra bbq flavor. I had seen other pulled pork recipes that added either chicken stock or beer so I opted for a bottle of beer to add some more liquid. My boyfriend who loves bbq wished it had more of a smokey bbq flavor so next time I may use a different bbq sauce and maybe add some paprika to give it that flavor. All and all the I thought the recipe came out great.
Sooooooooooooo good. Can't wait for leftovers. I also did the half ketchup, half bbq sauce because I love bbq sauce and it turned out so yummy. Only drawback is the onions didn't get as cooked as I would have liked them. I will definitely make this again. **EDIT: I forgot to mention that I haven't actually used this sauce on pork shoulder. Most of the time I throw it on rotisserie chicken meat I've pulled from the bone and I did use it once on pork ribs.
Based on other reviews I used 1c ketchup and 1c bbq sauce. I loved it! My husband wants me to use a spicier bbq sauce, which I will do the next time I make this (I have no problem with that request). The sauce was full of flavor, so much tastier than just dumping in regular bbq sauce. I served this over baked potatoes with shredded cheddar and sour cream. I cooked it in the crockpot and it smelled so good that I could hardly wait for dinner.
Wow this was incredible!!!! U must try. My house smells so delicious. I made one adjustment since the sauce was almost as perfect as my own sauce I just added a little liquid smoke and lots more garlic bc i love garlic and 1 cup of water with a beef cube. We had it with a can of bush baked beans and a tossed salad with dressing. Quick and easy. My only suggestion would be double the sauce just in case you would like a little more for the side. My son and I loved it w/o extra sauce but my hubs would want more sauce. Great great recipe. Thank you, I was beginning to wonder if I would ever find a recipe I would like for pulled pork this is outstanding.
I made the crock pot version and cut my shoulder into 1/2" cubes. I also did one cup of ketchup and one cup of honey BBQ sauce instead of two cups of ketchup. One word: WOW! The flavor was AMAZING. We ate the meat on soft potato rolls and gobbled them down. Next time, I think I'll try using a larger chunk of meat and shredding it after cooking for a different texture. Also, this recipe freezes extremely well. Yum!
I have used this basic recipe many times. Sometimes I use pork, other times beef, both are wonderful. For substitutions I used: 1 cup of ketchup; 3/4 cup bbq sauce; 1/4 cup vinegar; 3 tbs liquid smoke; 2 big cloves of garlic. I cooked the pork in my crock pot seasoned slightly with pepper and chili powder in chicken broth. After about 8 hours, drain the chicken broth, break up the meat and put in the refrigerator in the sauce overnight. I brought this recipe to a cook off and won hands down. Everyone was raving about it.
I followed another reviewer's advice and doubled the recipe for a frozen 5 pound roast then cooked it on low in the slow cooker for 10 hours. It was delicious! the meat just fell apart. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you for sharing!
i've made this twice and my family loves it!! just delicious and super easy!!
I make this ALL the time! I use a roast and don't even bother to slice it first. I just put all the ingredients in and let it work. When it's all done I stir it up and the pork is so tender it just shreds while I stir it! We have eaten this on rolls, over rice, and for the rare times there are leftovers we scoop it up with tortilla chips.
Great over a baked potato!
Very easy to make.
I love love this recipe so tender so favorful my kids love this recipe its so devine its a keeper
Easy and the best pork bbq I've ever eaten
definitely nothing wrong with this recipe, it is very good. i gave it 4 stars just because there are other recipes similar to this one on this website that are better. great recipe though, and extremely easy to make. the only thing about the pork shoulder is its fatty and i dont care for the extra work of trimming it. also, the sauce didnt thicken up so even with straining it, it'll make your sandwich soggy.
Good dinner, especially if you don't have time. Made recipe exactly as called for, but was slightly too watery. Just took the lid off the crock pot for the last hour and it thickened up a bit.
Followed the recipe but used pork roast instead of pork shoulder and me and the gf loved it.
Love this recipe! It's a new staple in my kitchen. I took the suggestion of using 1 cup of ketchup and 1 cup of barbeque sauce. Use a smokey BBQ sauce for the best flavour... in my opinion!
I did this up in the slow cooker and it was very tasty--although be forewarned that its a sweet saucve-I'll try it was half the brown sugar next time.
This was really good. Everyone went back for seconds. I started my roast by cutting it into steaks and grilling them with alder wood chips for a smoky flavor. I then put the sauce together in the pan and cut the steaks into big chunks and threw it in there. I knew it would take several hours to cook but I wanted to speed up the process a bit. I added a 6 oz can of pineapple juice (the enzymes help break down the meat) and a TBS of molasses along with some smoked and regular paprika. The sauce as written was excellent which is why I gave it five stars. If you want it spicier; add more pepper or cut a jalapeno in half and let it simmer with the meat. The additions I made later were good too and were done to speed up the process (I was hungry) Wonderful sauce as written. Thanks Kimber.
I omit the onions for a light dusting of onion powder and cook on high for 5 hours. The amount of sauce used is perfect and doesn't make for a watery sauce in the end. This is now my 'go to' recipie for pulled pork.
My whole family loves this recipe. I am not a big fan of barbecue however this is a great easy reccipe.
Very easy- made adjustments by adding cajun spice, a bottle of hard apple cider, a small amount of honey and Spanish paprika, and halving the ketchup with bbq sauce as indicated by previous reviewers. I did slice the pork in large chunks since I had six pounds of pork shoulder and wanted to make sure the liquid adequately covered all parts. Served with Boudin rolls- very easy for company.
Tried it and loved it;even after our Southern gentleman made his boorish critique.
I LOVED this one. I made the portion a lot larger with a 6 pound pork shoulder and cooked it in the crock pot on low for 10 hours. I took the advice of past reviewers and did half ketchup and half jack daniels bbq sauce. My husband and one of his friends raved about the flavor. I will definitly be making this one agagin
This recipe is excellent. I used a few tablespoons of spicy mustart instead of mustard seed and tossed in a packet of taco seasoning for pulled pork tacos it came out perfect. delicious.
Awesome!!! I always double the recipe and slow cook it in a crockpot overnight. After shredding the pork I let it cook and soak up the sauce for another couple of hours. Super easy and always a hit on football Sundays. :)
We loved this. I too was worried when I left for work but it was perfect. I too put the whole shoulder in and then shredded before we ate it. Delicious!!!
This one really wonderful! I used half barbecue sauce and half ketchup.
I couldn't find a whole shoulder at my grocery store so I bought shoulder steaks and just didn't slice them. I cooked it with the bone in for extra flavor, then removed it after cooking. This was fabulous and I will definately make it again and again.
This was ok. It was very flavorful, but the meat was not as tender as i thought it would be. I did it the stove top way. Next time i will try it in the slow cooker
Nice. We did rolls and slaw too. Even the 12, 10 an 7 year olds liked it.
Amazing!!! I seasoned the pork with garlic powder, salt & pepper and froze it. Then I mixed up all the other ingredients and put it in the fridge the night before. I put everything in the crock pot before work. 12 hours later the pork was so tender & juicy it fell off the bones. My husband just raved about it!! This will be a staple in our house!
I thought this recipe was very good. My husband liked it but he thought it was too sweet for his taste. I put the pork shoulder in frozen and let it cook overnight for about 13 hours. Easy recipe.
Wonderful flavors and so easy to make using a slow cooker. It was a little saucy for my taste, so next time I'll reduce the ketchup to 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup barbeque sauce (I used Original KC Masterpiece and it lent a nice smokiness to the finished dish). Another thing I'll change next time will be to put the meat in the pot last. Then I'll turn it to coat all over with the sauce. Other than that, this recipe is very good. Oh, and I served this on a hearty slice of whole grain buttered toast and a romaine salad on the side. Thanks for a keeper recipe!
Thanks sooo much, Kimber! Your recipe has been a staple for about 2 years. (In fact, this may be my second review—good!-the dish deserves extra praise.) Particularly during football season, when friends gather for games, I'm grateful for the ease of both prep & service, not to mention that everyone adores this, served on top-quality buns with a simple green salad. Three things I'll point out: (1) This is doable with any number of pork cuts--yesterday it was pork loin sirloin, on sale last week. (2) Since the meat will fall apart, (and off the bone if one uses a bone-in cut), pre-slicing may be unnecessary--I don't bother, in any case. (3) This is extremely economical. Yesterday I followed your recipe exactly except for doubling the onion & adding 1 T. chili powder -- despite 6 hungry guests (some of whom had more than one helping), my husband & I have leftovers enough for tonight’s meal.
YUM, YUM, YUM! This turned out great!! I made a huge roast worth, so I cut a large pork tenderloin into 4 smaller roasts and slow cooked that way. I will probably slice down even more next time to speed along the shredding process (we made this into pulled pork instead of the sliced pork). It was fantastic and I can't wait to try it again!
This was really good. My only problem with it was that the meat was very fatty. I'm not a very experienced cook so I'm not sure if the shoulder is very fatty or if it was just my cut. The fattiness I think affected the overall flavor but it was still very good. I'm going to see if there would be a better substitute to avoid the fattiness next time.
The sauce tasted great and gave the meat a nice flavor. Just a helpful hint--if your slow cooker is relatively large, make sure you AT LEAST double the sauce if you plan on cooking it on low for many hours. I came home from work and the sauce was a black tar on the sides of my pot because my husband put it in the slow cooker in the morning and didn't have the previous knowledge to know that you would need more sauce in there. Nothing at all wrong with the recipe, but this could help save people new to using a crock pot!!! I was able to save the meat by shredding it, putting it on the stove and adding some more bbq sauce and broth to bring back some moisture.
Followed the recipe exactly with the exception of not slicing the meat before cooking, and using about 3.5# pork shoulder but not doubling the sauce. This was really good. A thinner, sweetish tomato sauce (not thick like bottled BBQ) accenting melt in your mouth pork perfectly slow cooked. Even my 7 yr old liked it. This one is a keeper for us! Thank you!!
I used 1c ketchup and 1c Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce and I still used the Worcester sauce (don't know if I was supposed to or not!) and it came out GREAT. A little bit on the sweet side, but that may be due to the BBQ sauce that I used. This recipe was wonderful, and I used pork shoulder country style ribs and sliced those into 1/4" to 1/2" pieces just as the recipe states. Thanks for sharing this, it's definitely a keeper!!!!!
Out of this world amazing! Great topped with cole slaw too.
I cut back on the ketchup like some other users said and I should not have. I also added a little more worchestire, sugar, mustard and a little liquid smoke flavoring and it turned out great.
Awesome bbq recipe! I made this for my son's 10th bday party -I cooked 2 - 11 lb pork shoulders several days ahead of time so I wasnt shredding pork the day of the party. I slow cooked the pork in the oven with onion, celery, seasonings, then shredded and placed in fridge. On the day of the party I mixed the brown sugar, dry mustard, salt pepper, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce with the pork in the crockpot. I just multiplied the amount based on the amount of pork I had. Absolutely tasty and perfect, tastes just like a great bbq sauce - so if you have a good sale on ketchup, it's a great alternative to bbq sauce!
This was a huge hit with my family and guests! I cut some of the fat off the shoulder before cooking - just the really big portions. And I stuck it in the oven for about 20 minutes or so to crisp up the tops of the meat just before eating as I'd seen done in some recipes - so good!
This was awesome. One garlic clove didn't seem enough so I used 4(small)ones,and we still didn't taste it. I didn't have quite enough worcestershire sauce so I added the missing amount of bbq sauce. The were So good. I will defnitely make this again and I have a slightly tough cut of beef roast so I will try that instead.
Delicious and easy recipe. I made this exactly as listed and it was great! The sauce is very similar to the recipe my mother-in-law gave me and we use it on everything we want to grill and barbeque.(Super on grilled chicken). I never thought to use it with pork sanwiches. Thanks Kimber, for the great idea!
This is delicious! I start it after dinner (I like using pork loin roast when I can get it on sale--much less fat to trim!) and let it cook on the stovetop at a simmer for 2 1/2 hrs. Then I shred it and refrigerate it. Can't get any easier or better than this!
Absolutely amazing! I took the advice of others and did half ketchup and half BBQ sauce (I used Jack Daniels). It was a hit among my guests and my house smelled AMAZING!
I made this twice this weekend for my boyfriend and me. I followed the recipe exactly (except I used prepared mustard, I used 2x's as much prepared mustard for ever portion of dry mustard). I halved the recipe and it still came out perfect. The sauce was delicious, pork was tender. I definitely recommend this recipe! It was SUPER easy and delicious.
I cooked as some others suggested, with less ketchup and more barbecue sauce,and additionally then shredded the pork with two forks after 8 hours. It came out great. Thanks for the recipe.
OMG this was so good. Perfect sauce/pork ratio. Flavor was right on. Just what i was looking for. I slow simmered my pork on the stove for 7 hrs.and it fell of the bone and shredded easily. No need to pre slice. Will make this again soon!
This recipe was really good. I used left over pork shoulder roast that I had. It made really good sandwiches. I substituted half of the ketchup for BBQ sauce like other reviewers suggested. Yummy!
I've been using Allrecipes for years but never became a member. This recipe, however, is so yummy I joined Allrecipes so I could tell everyone else how good it is! I've made it numerous times now. Sometimes I didn't have enough ketchup so I substituted bottled barbecue sauce for what I lacked. Most of the time I substituted dried onions for the fresh for lack of time. Freezes well. We serve it on toasted buns with cheese and lettuce. Sometimes even in fried corn tortillas as taco filling. YUM!!
Really inexpensive dinner and tasty too.
Used an 8lb boston cut pork shoulder. I doubled the sauce, as many thought doubling their's for their 5lb meat made it watery, I figured I could afford to double but not triple mine. I didn't start early enough (I used slow cooker) to let it completely cool & reheat as some said it helped the taste. But I did take out meat to shred meat & put crock (juices only) outside to cool & seperate the fat a bit. That decreased the sauce quite a bit, so I replaced the meat in the crock & added additional bottled sauce (I originally used 1/2 ketchup-1/2 bottled bbq sauce to help reduce sweetness---definately recommend.) Let it reheat on high until ready to serve. Used during Super Bowl & family LOVED it. Oh, and I also sauted the finely chopped onions in butter prior to adding at the beginning.
So good. Used 1 cup ketchup and 1 cup BBQ sauce instead. Also added cayenne. Gave it a little kick. Will make often.
Very good. I also reduced the ketchup to 1 cup and added more garlic. Tastes much better as leftovers the next day. My ten year old meat lover wasn't impressed though.
I cut up a 3.5 lb shoulder in the crock pot. Put the ingredients in,exact to recipe. It seemed to cook fast. After a few hours, I got hard lumps of pork. Disappointed, I kept it cooking and went out for dinner. Came home that night and threw the whole crock pot in the refrigerator and cooked it for a few more hours the next day. (total about 8.) Let it cool then it shred perfectly and was the most delicious pulled pork sandwhich I ever had!!!
I read the reviews on this one and took a detour. I really did not have time to mix the ingredients listed in the recipe, so, after reading other reviews, I took a chance and just mixed equal parts of Sweet Baby Ray BBQ sauce and Ketchup; about 1 cup each. Brushed it over the meat and crossed my fingers. That's it. Left it for 7 hours [no peeking], turned it off and let it cool a bit. The pork shoulder fell apart & was so tender. I shredded it and mixed with the sauces that had brewed in the crock pot all day and let it set a little longer. I added a dash or two of coarse salt. I am telling you it was amazing. Actually, I could not believe it was that good since I had modified the recipe -- plus, it was even better the next day. My only footnote is that the sugars in the bbq/ketchup burned a little on the sides of the crock pot, but there was still enough sauce to mix with the meat. My picky husband absolutely loved it.
Since we made this recipe, we've been enjoying barbeque pork sandwiches for dinner, three nights in a row now! (How quickly college makes you appreciate leftovers...) I replaced 2/3 of the ketchup with barbeque sauce. Also, my batch was very watery about 2 hours before we were to eat, so I took the lid of my crock pot and it evaporated nicely to become thick and delicious.
Great recipe! We took the advice of one reviewer and cooked the pork in the slow cooker with water and beef boullion cubes. Then we pulled it out, shredded it, and added the sauce. (For the sauce, we sauteed the onions and garlic in a saucepan, then added the rest of the ingredients and simmered. We also used bottled bbq sauce for part of the ketchup allotment) We had a 4 lb pork shoulder and scaled the recipe for 13 servings- however, there was more sauce than necessary. I'd say use about 2/3 the amount of ketchup/bbq sauce that it calls for.
This is pretty good. I made recipe as is and cooked for 7 hours. Will cut back to 6 hours next time because pork was starting to get dry. Still great flavor and my 5 year old said "this chicken is good, Mom"! Ha Ha. Will definately make again. Thanks Kimber
I used the slow cooker version and this came out good. We added cheese to our sandwiches. Yum!
BEYOND EXCELLENT! Used a loin & cut off the fat. Slow cooked the pork by itself, pulled it (less messy this way), THEN added sauce (as suggested by many: half ketchup, half BBQ sauce)& continued cooking. Loved by all: kids, grandparents, co-workers, etc. Not one bad word! Melts in your mouth! I had to make THREE 10 pounders because more was demanded by all (adjust recipe for the amount of meat you're cooking). Thank you, thank you, thank you! Mmmmmmmmmm!
This is by far one of my favorite recipes to cook up. I made a big batch for my family and friends and everyone raved about it. I used small ciabatta rolls from Trader Joe's to make little pork sliders and everyone was thrilled. I actually used a fork to pull the meat apart in order to make it pulled pork. Fabulous!!!
Great flavor! I used very lean pork and it turned out a little too dry for my husband's taste. I'll use a fattier piece of meat next time. I served it with sourdough brown-and-serve rolls and fruit salad and my family wolfed it down. Will make again. Thanks!
I made this for Saturday college football and everyone loved it. I made a large roast expecting leftovers but they ate it all. I made it in my crockpot. Remember that the time is an estimate and it will vary based on the cut of your pork (i.e. roast, shoulder, tenderloin) and the temperature of your meat (thawed or frozen). My 4# roast was frozen and I cooked it overnight (approx. 10 hrs.), pulled the meat and put it back in the juice to simmer again for another hour. I've made lots of pork bbq and wasn't keen on the ketchup idea. I was also low on ketchup so I used a bottle of bbq (great value honey bbq) and 2T. ketchup. Also, some other reviewers said the juices/sauce was too thin but I liked it the way it was. It was perfect!
Super simple recipe. The smell in my house was so delicious. Made it for my daughters rodeo party. It was a HIT with teenagers and adults. I used boneless chuck steak, in oven at 325• baked for 8hrs, it came out so tender and meat shredded easy. I definitely recommend this, 5-stars!
What could be easier than placing everything in one pan and serving a few hours later? I cooked this on the stovetop, and stirred every once in a while. I added about 1/4 cup of water towards the end to make a little more sauce. The meat came out tender and flavorful. I didn't say a word to my husband that I tried a new recipe, and he actually remarked how much he liked it. That's all I needed to hear.
I made this in my crock pot with boneless country style pork ribs. I foresaw difficulty in shredding the pork, so while still slightly frozen I cut into thin slices. It was delicious. My entire family went nuts for it. It did seem a little soupy though. This was great with the Whole Wheat Sandwich Rolls recipe from this site. What a great dinner!
Yummy, I tested and couldn't wait for dinner time to come fast enough. I also used my crock pot low 7 1/2 hours but I doubled it (big family). I can't wait to bring this to a big party so good!
I make pulled pork sandwiches all the time but my husband thought this version was the best so far. Thanks for a great recipe.
I made this in a crockpot exactly as the recipe was written, except that I doubled it. It was delicious freshly cooked, and even more delicious heated up after being frozen.
It was pretty good. I added a little Jack Daniels BBQ sauce to it, but it made it a little too watery in the end.
I used a slow cooker. Easy & delicious. My kids even asked for more.
