Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork

    This turned out beautifully! I used a 5lb piece of pork shoulder, though, so I added a bit more chicken broth which I might not do next time. Didn't really need the extra liquid. Did add extra sauce since more meat than recipe called for. The addition of the mustard, honey, and soy really upped the flavor, so don't skip that no matter how good you think your sauce is. This was absolutely delicious on a roll with cole slaw on top. Yum! Super easy, too!

    I make this often and have great lunches or dinner for a week. It is super simple and can be assembled the night before to cook while I'm at work the next day. If you like tangier barbeque, omit the honey and add more mustard. Serve it on warm onion rolls with a simple salad and it's perfect year-round.

    Super easy and tastes fantastic. I used a pork tenderloin (2.75 lbs), sprinkled a bit of cajun seasoning on it, and cooked on low for 7.5 hours. After, while cooling the tenderloins on a plate, since I didn't want liquid mixed in with the pork and BBQ sauce, I used a strainer to save the onions and little pork pieces and drained off all the fat and chicken broth. Threw it back in the cooker, pulled the pork with two forks, used Salt Lick BBQ sauce along with the mustard and honey, and cooked another hour. Didn't use soy sauce. Yummy, will be making this often.

    This is a delicious recipe. Instead of using water or chicken broth I used a little root beer for the broth (per another recipe). As some of the others suggested I removed a lot of the juioe and I'm glad I did. Served with homemade macaroni and cheese and coleslaw on top. Will make this recipe again.

    Excellent! My husband is not a real fan of pork, but he LOVED this recipe. We had it for dinner, and he wanted it the next day, too! Very easy to make. Definitely a keeper.

    The recipe worked perfectly and turned out delicious. I do think I need to drain the meat better, as it ended up with too much liquid and the sandwich bun got soggy. However, I will definitely be making this recipe again. Excellent recipe.

    This recipe was fantastic! I used low sodium chicken broth and drained it all before I added the other ingredients, which made the watery-ness others have talk about a non-issue. Would definitely make again

    I've never cooked or even eaten pulled pork before and now i can't wait to make it again. This was ridiculously good. My boyfriend went nuts over it. I got a 3.5 lb boneless pork shoulder from the nearby butcher, which i can only assume made a difference compared to supermarket bought. Cooked it in the slow cooker for 8 and a half hours and it just fell apart beautifully. I followed the suggestions and removed all liquid before returning the shredded pork back to the cooker. I served it on jumbo hamburger buns with coleslaw and macaroni salad. INCREDIBLE!!!

    Definitely DRAIN THE LIQUID BEFORE ADDING THE BBQ SAUCE! I so wish I would have read the reviews before cooking this. The flavor was incredible, but it was too runny for sandwiches. This is one of those easy to throw together dishes that wows a crowd!

    Very good. Very easy. Definitely get rid of the liquid and I use a little less bbq sauce. The flavor was great, and it was such an easy meal.

    Awesome recipe! Drained liquid before adding bbq sauce, and they turned out great!! Very easy and affordable.

    Oh man. Sooo good! I did as others suggested and drained the liquid before adding the BBQ sauce mix, and that worked out really well. Also, the bottle of sauce I had was more like 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups, but that turned out to be plenty.

    I doubled the recipe and they literally scraped the pot clean! Definitely a keeper!

    This was excellent. Everyone that ate it raved about it...it was better than some BBQ restaurants, and this was made in a slow cooker. Put some coleslaw on the sandwich. This is a must make recipe!

    This recipe is absolutely perfect. The meat is wonderfully tender, and the finished product is delicious. I love when it's the simple recipes that make the best food. We tried using ground mustard seeds instead of prepared mustard for the final stage; while tasty, it looks much better using prepared mustard. This recipe also works equally well for moose. Always worth a try!

    Simply excellent. I'll concur with the others, DRAIN excess liquid before adding in the sauces. I've made a few tweaks which have really made this a tasty meal to the highest order. The tweaks involve: applying a rub before cooking, using Inglehoffer Sweet Hot Pepper mustard and (hey, it works) a few drops of liquid smoke! I've made pulled pork on the smoker many, many times ... but honestly, this recipe trumps the smoker.

    I followed this recipe exactly and I've never made BBQ before but wow it was so easy and sooo good!! My husband and 2 yr old daughter love it as well! Definitely will make it again in the future

    I used two-four and a half pound pork shoulders with bone in. Cooked in slow cooker on high for eight hours(just fit in my new 7 quart slow cooker). Deboned and shredded, taking out any extra fat. I discarded juice after straining out the onion and extra pork pieces and doubled recipe for sauce. Served on a onion bun topped with coleslaw. Absolutely wonderful. Can't wait to make it again.

    This was awesome, my family really enjoyed it! I was worried that I did not have chicken broth but using water really did not hinder the flavor. The only thing different I did was seasoned my pork shoulder with a dry rub season blend and pepper before I put it in the Crock Pot.

    This was excellent. Paired it with jalapeno-lime slaw from Cooking Light, using only 1 jalapeno, seeded, for the slaw to keep it kid friendly.

    I made this for my family last night and it was a hit!!! I used our favorite BBQ sauce and the rest exactly has the recipe states and it was delicious!!!!!

  • bones95 Posted: 11/12/13

    This turned out great. I went with a 4lb butt that cooked 8 1/2 to 9 hours before shred. Then additional hour was in sweet baby rays hickory and brown sugar bbq sauce.
