In the Crockpot: Pulled Pork

Posted by on 20 March 2009

Today we had a field trip to a dairy farm, so the last thing I wanted to do was to be worried about what was for dinner. I asked the man to get my crock pot down and a pork roast out of the freezer before he left for work.

I wanted to make pulled pork for dinner. It just sounds so good. My blogging buddy Kathy, posted a recipe awhile back and then I got a new crockpot cookbook with a recipe in it. I never follow recipes, but I use them for background. I came up with my own formulation and this is how it turned out….


I can only say it was delicious!! And that’s putting it mildly. I decided that since I’m going t be using my crockpot a little bit more often, that I’d share my recipes with you. Below, you’ll find the recipes for this entire meal!! I hope you enjoy and let me know if you try any of it out!!

Pulled Pork in the Crockpot

pork roast, approx, 3 lbs.      3/4 bottle of honey or smoked bbq sauce      squirt of mustard

2 Tablespoons brown sugar      10-12 splashes of worsteshire sauce      pinch of red pepper seeds

salt and pepper to taste      1/2 large onion, diced

Put pork roast in the crockpot.  Add all ingredients on and around the pork roast.  Set on “low” to cook 6-8 hours or “high” to cook 4 hours.  With an hour remaining prior to serving, pull pork roast apart and mix with all juices in the crockpot.  Let cook for remaining hour on “low”.  Serve on large buns, with or without sesame seeds.

Quick Baked Beans

1 large can pork & beans      1/4 large onion, diced      2 Tablespoons brown sugar   

1/4 bottle honey or smoked bbq sauce      salt and pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in a large pan over low heat.  Simmer with lid on for approximately 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Let finish cooking, approximately 10 minutes with lid off over medium heat.  Serve.

Cole Slaw

1 packed pre-shredded cabbage or slaw mix      squirt of mustard

salt and pepper to taste      1 cup of mayo or salad dressing

Mix all ingredients together.  Mixture should be creamy, but not “wet”.  Serve immediately, although tastes best if you let sit in the refrigerator over night.

    The field trip sounds fun and informative – do share – the recipes are great – my 12 year old will love you forever for the baked bean recipe which I have not tried in my crock pot (baked beans) so I think I’ll surprise him with your recipe – you’ll have to try the newest one I just shared – it has italian dressing in with the barbeque sauce which I thought was odd but it was so dee-lish!
    Thanks for sharing this!

      I have a post for the field trip and I’ll get it up as soon as I can. You’ll have to let me know how the quick baked beans turn out. They’re very popular in our house when we don’t feel like actually baking them. For leftovers, we put the remaining pulled pork in the remaining beans. YUMMY!!

    This sounds delicious and I’m going to have to try this out. I make a Carolina-style BBQ. But pulled pork with some beans and coleslaw sounds heavenly right now.
