Sometimes life gets in the way of cooking but I hate to settle, so I have a few favorites that I pull out for these occasions. Pulled pork is so easy and if you’ve got a crock pot, it is perfect for not heating up the kitchen in the summer.
BBQ Pulled Pork
1 Pork Roast (Boston Butt, Shoulder or Picnic) whichever you choose, make sure it will fit in your crock pot
1 Bottle Weber All Natural BBQ Sauce*
3 Medium Onions, Sliced
Cooking spray (optional)
- If your crock pot has a rack, spray with cooking spray to help with cleanup.
- Trim some of the fat from the roast if desired. I like to keep some of the fat on while cooking.
- Place sliced onions in a layer on the bottom of your crock pot.
- Place roast, fat side up, in pan and pour half the BBQ sauce over the top.
- Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 8.
- When done, remove roast and place on cutting board. Let it rest for at least 10 minutes.
- After resting, use two forks to pull apart the meat into shreds. Yes, your arms will get tired, just pour a drink and get into it, it is worth it!
- Place shredded pork into a large bowl. Pour some of the drippings & onions from the crockpot over the shreds until just moist, but not soupy.
- You can serve this on rolls with the remaining BBQ sauce as a condiment or serve over rice.
* Why Weber? This stuff is good. I mean really good. It is all natural, no high fructose corn syrup and sticks to the meat! It comes in several flavors from bold to sweet to spicy. I will rarely agree that a shelf product is as good as homemade but it is that good.
