Cooking the pork loin alone is too dry. Add country-style pork ribs in the slow cooker along with the pork loin to give it more moistness and flavor. Serve this pulled pork barbeque on top of a baked potato or on buns for a sandwich.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Stir 1 bottle barbeque sauce and dry onion soup mix together in the bottom of a large slow cooker crock. Place pork loin and ribs into the slow cooker.

  • Cook on High until the meat begins to fall apart, 6 to 8 hours. Remove meat and set aside. Allow crock to cool enough to handle; pour liquid into a bowl. Clean the crock and return it to the slow cooker.

  • Debone ribs; discard bones and any fat. Shred meat from the ribs. Shred pork loin meat using two forks pulling them in opposite directions. Return all the shredded meat to the slow cooker. Pour 1 bottle barbeque sauce over the pork. Add a small amount of water to the sauce bottle, shake vigorously to get as much sauce from the bottle as possible, and pour into the slow cooker.

  • Cook on Low for 1 hour.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

Soo here's stumbling through this recipe;-) End result was great. However getting there was like getting Little Red Riding Hood to go to Grandma's;-) And I grin on this because I made everything on this recipe from kidding. Went for dry onion soup mix was out...came to AR got the recipe and made it..YES! Then was out of BBQ sauce crud-ola'! Okay made that too from scratch as well thanks to another AR'er here named Georgi that's a dear friend of mine and gave me a recipe she's been making for 30 years and it was prefect just made enough to complete this recipe. It's all good had I had just the basics already when I was making couldn't have been any simplier. The only draw back I saw was this morning when pulling the meat out to shred it was the meat on the very bottom had scrotched and I had to discard those pieces. I could have easily put on low and been able to save some of the meat durning the night by moving the meat around to prevent that but that wasn't the case. Do watch the meat closely. However the recipe turned out great even though I had to take additional steps to get this recipe done. And it was worth it because my family asked for me to make it again. And I have soo much. This batch makes alot. I also used boneless country still ribs verses bone in because it's what I had purchased. There wasn't much discarded or wasted at all. TY it's a repeater. Read More

No need to buy those expensive cuts of meat! I bought an 8 lb pork shoulder roast for 1.19 per #. Trimmed off the little bit of excess fat before putting into cooker and I turned it over every couple of hours because it was so big. End result was juicy & tasted great. This made a huge amount - at lest 36 servings- and cost less than 10 for the meat. It freezes well & if you freeze it flattened out in a freezer bag it thaws quickly & makes a good last minute meal. Eat it on buns or not have extra bbq sauce for those who like lots of sauce. Read More

Made this using a 6.5 lb. package of Pork Shoulder Boneless Country Ribs. Followed the recipe but used more BBQ Sauce in the initial mix due to my larger amount of ribs. Added a heaping teaspoon of Harissa (Chili Paste) and let it cook in the slow cooker all day. I did not add the full amount of BBQ Sauce at the end of shredding. We don't like our pork swimming in sauce. I did not add it back into the slow cooker for the second time. It was time for dinner and once shredding was done - I served this. Easy. Good. Worked great! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I have used this recipe a number of times and love it. I live in Moscow Russia and this recipe gives me a taste of home. I love anything I can cook in in the Slow Cooker. I have learned that my Slow Cooker cooks hot so I have to reduce the time to prevent overcooking. alike the previous reviewer I also make my Barbecue sauce from scratch (thanks to AllRecipe cook SUZANNE2802). My question about this recipe is what is the need to use a second bottle of barbecue sauce? What do you do with the sauce placing into a bowl after cooking the meat? There is plenty of Barbecue sauce left. Could it not be placed back in the Slow Cooker after pulling the meat? Read More

This is a really good no fail simple crock pot recipe that I've used many times. It's one I always point newer cooks and party givers to. Over time I've developed a couple of tweaks based on experimenting with other recipes. I usually use about 1/2 of a large bottle of barbecue sauce (at least 12-16 oz) 8 oz of non-diet cola (plain ol' Coke works best) and the onion soup mix to cook the meat in. The cola adds a little sweetness and helps to tenderize the meat. When the meat is done I drain off the liquid saving it and shred the meat and put it back in the cooker. I pour about a cup of strained reserved meat liquids and the other 1/2 bottle of sauce over the meat and mix well. Let the meat heat through about 30 minutes more. Serve additional barbecue sauce on the side. The key is to taste your end product after you shred the meat and add more sauce to your family's taste. Read More

You discard the sauce when removing from crockpot because after cooking it will have too much grease/fat in it. This is the reason you use a second bottle of sauce with a little water added to it. I use Cattlemens BBQ Sauce and I always add a little bit of water to it for drizzling. Read More
