This Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork comes out juicy and just like the name it pulls apart easily with a fork when done.
This is one of those put it in the Crock-Pot in the morning, set it, and eight hours later it’s ready for dinner. Serve with a side of mashed potatoes or on a bun with a side of french fries.
The spices in this dish are simple but give it that barbecue taste. Although you’ll notice there is no actual barbecue sauce in this recipe.
It’s not spicy but if you want to add heat, feel free to add hot sauce or a few jalapeños to the mix or serve BBQ Pulled Pork with a hot sauce or horseradish sauce on the side.
I went a little crazy and made 7 lbs. of pulled pork but if you decide to use a smaller cut of meat it will not change the ingredients listed below. This is a very forgiving recipe so anywhere between 4 and 7 pounds of pork will work.
Just as a side note, much more than 7 lbs. of meat will not fit into a large Crock-Pot. I had to really work to get 7 lbs of meat plus all the other ingredients in there.
And 7 lbs. will feed a small army so I froze half for another meal. If you want to freeze a portion wait until it’s completely cool and put it in a gallon ziploc or a plastic container and freeze. When thawing, let it completely thaw in the refrigerator a day ahead before warming it up in the microwave.
