Easy Peasy Pulled Pork

Easy Peasy Pulled Pork is made with just two ingredients, a pork roast and some barbeque sauce. You won't believe how easy it is to make perfect pulled pork in your slow cooker!

I have to be honest with you.

I had a hard time deciding whether or not I was going to be posting this recipe.  You see, it's hardly a recipe at all.  Just a hunk of meat and some barbecue sauce.  And using bottle barbecue sauce is far from cooking from scratch, which is something I not only like to do, but pride myself on.  I suppose if I were to whip together a homemade sauce to lengthen the ingredients list it wouldn't seem so pedestrian.

Nonetheless, I decided that a meal that requires such little preparation, yet yields delectable results might speak to someone out there;  a stay-at-home mom or dad that's cooking on a budget, the busy executive spending all day at the office who comes home and just wants a good meal without having to think about it, or maybe a budding teenage chef who is preparing a dinner to impress the fam.  This one's for you.  Easy Peasy Pulled Pork.  It's frugal.  It's effortless.  It's delicious.

  • 4-5 lb pork roast (Pork butt is a great choice.  No need to go the pricey route here...we're slow cookin'.)
  • 1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce (I like to use Jack Daniel's Original No. 7.) 

  1. Place pork roast in you slow cooker and cover with the entire bottle of barbecue sauce.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.  Every 3 hours or so, flip the roast and stir the sauce to make sure it isn't burning on the sides of your crock pot.
  3. About 2 hour before serving, shred the pork roast with two forks.  It should shred fairly easily.  This will allow the pork to soak up all of the flavorful juices and cook to tender perfection.  Cover and continue to cook for the remaining 2 hours.
  4. Serve on toasted kaiser rolls.

  3. I am a big fan of slow food. Your pulled pork looks cooked to perfection. Sometimes simple is best.
