This is one of the easiest pulled pork recipes I've made. Since my husband was from 'south of the Mason-Dixon line' and raved about pulled pork in Virginia/South Carolina, I had a tough job ahead of me, but he loved it (!) so I guess I passed the test.

Very easy pulled pork recipe! Instead of the slow cooker I cooked my 6 lb. roast in a covered dutch oven for 4 hours at 300 degrees until it was easy to shred. I also put a rub on the pork of paprika garlic powder cayenne salt & onion powder before braising. The pork was fall apart tender. I personally prefer to make my own bbq sauce but the addition of the vinegar to the bottled sauce gave the sauce a nice tang and was a big hit with my husband. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

"Pulled" it after 7 hours, removed 1/2 the liquid as directed, added brown sugar and BBQ sauce, then gave it another hour. Excellent flavor for such an easy recipe. Read More

This is first time I cooked pork this way. It was absolutely delicious so much so that when the family sampled it before I added the sauce they decided to have it without. We had roast potatoes & veg along with it. I did add the BBQ sauce to the leftovers the next day & had it along with homemade rolls & it went down a treat. Won't be looking for any other recipes for pulled pork. This is a keeper. Thanks so much for this delicious recipe. Read More

Very easy to prepare and walk away for a few hours while the crock pot does it's magic. It turned out wonderful. I served the pulled pork as sliders on King's Hawaiian Rolls but it would be equally great on sourdough bread or ciobatta rolls. Your kids will love this!! Read More

We love this! It is so simple. I serve with Hawaiian rolls so I don't use much brown sugar. Read More

My husband loves pulled pork sandwiches so I made this recipe to the exact specifications. He loved it! He will be taking pork sandwiches to work this week as our family of five barely made a dent. Read More
