Pulled Pork Recipe

I think I may have had pulled pork twice in my life, but I have really been craving it! I finally bought a pork butt at the store with the plan to make it in the slow-cooker. It ended up being super easy (definitely hit the spot with a toasted buttered roll) and I will definitely cook it again.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Yummy pork goodness


  • 4-5 pound pork butt
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup ketchup or tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Paprika
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • 1 bottle BBQ sauce


  • Mix in the slow-cooker, all the wet ingredients except the BBQ sauce
  • In a small bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients, enough to rub over all of the pork
  • After rubbing down the pork, place it in the crock-pot on low for 5-8 hours, turning over once, half-way through
  • After it has cooked, drain the liquid out and place the pork back in the slow-cooker (still on low)
  • With two forks, shred the pork then add a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • Stir thoroughly and serve on toasted buns, make lettuce wraps, tacos, nachos, or eat it by itself or as a salad topper

This was great the next day too. We have already eaten 5 sandwiches from the batch and we still have plenty left!

    • Yes- you can roast it in a roasting pan on low heat (225-300 degrees) for just as long (as long as the pork is falling apart and reading 170 degrees). I haven’t tried it in the oven, but I’ve seen lots of internet recipes for oven-roasted pulled pork. Let me know how it works out!
