Super-Easy Pulled Pork Sandwiches


I use this hearty recipe for my Super Bowl® parties. It's super easy and feeds a lot of hungry football fans. Serve on a large bun with some baked beans, coleslaw, and chips.

20 servings


  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons paprika

  • 1 ½ tablespoons garlic powder (such as McCormick® California Style)

  • 1 ½ tablespoons ground black pepper

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • ½ cup Dijon mustard (such as Hellmann's®)

  • 8 pounds pork shoulder roast (butt roast), rind removed

  • ½ cup barbeque sauce, or to taste

  • 18 large hamburger buns, split


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

  2. Mix brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt in a bowl. Spread mustard over pork roast and sprinkle with brown sugar mixture, using the entire amount. Line a shallow baking dish with aluminum foil. Place a rack in the prepared baking dish and arrange pork roast on rack.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until very tender, 9 to 11 hours. Let pork cool, then shred into bite-size pieces. Stir barbeque sauce into pork to moisten; serve with hamburger buns.

Cook's Note:

I also add some of the pan drippings to moisten the meat.
