The Tastiest and Easiest To Make Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich Ever

Pork BBQ_pinI understand that labeling this “The Tastiest and Easiest to Make Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich Ever” is quite a bold claim.  But I believe it is true.  If you want to prove me wrong (and I’d be totally okay with that), let me know how you make pulled pork BBQ in the comments section.

I should acknowledge that this is actually Alicia’s recipe, which I stole for my Recipe of the Week post because I love it so much.  So thank you Alicia. (I did ask her if it was okay and she begrudgingly agreed.)

This Crockpot recipe is perfect if you are planning on having friends over, or if you know you are getting home late from work and won’t have time to make a meal.  It takes 5 minutes of prep in the morning and about 10 minutes to finish the dish when you are ready to serve it.  You can add toppings like cheese and coleslaw if you want to, or your can just enjoy the pulled pork BBQ alone.  Whatever your preference, it tastes so good!  I can’t say that enough.  And it’s so easy to make!  Believe me.

One note before I get to the pulled pork recipe, I made a vinegar based coleslaw for my sandwich, which I found on Bon Appetit.  If you want to try the coleslaw recipe yourself, click here.  If you want to save time, you could just buy a prepared coleslaw instead.

Okay, so here we go with the pulled pork.  There is a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post if you want to try this yourself.  Or, if you are a Pinterest person, there is a Pin It button also at the bottom of the post, which you can click on to save this to your recipe board.

Ingredients

Pork Shoulder (I got 1.5 pounds for 4 sandwiches)
Salt
Pepper
Garlic Powder
BBQ Sauce (use your favorite)
Hamburger Buns
Provolone Cheese Slices (Optional)
Coleslaw Mix (Optional)

In the morning, set up your Crockpot.  Place the pulled pork in the center of the Crockpot and season it with salt, pepper and garlic powder.   Pour 1.5 cups of water into the bottom of the Crockpot.  Put the cover on and cook for 8 -10 hours.  Walk away and have a fabulous day knowing that you don’t have a ton of cooking to do when you get home.

At the end of the 8 – 10 hours remove the fat layer from the pork.  Then take two forks and shred the meat (it should easily fall apart).  Remove some of the water, but make sure there is enough water left to keep the meat moist.

Add the BBQ sauce to the shredded pork to get your desired consistency.  Let warm for a few minutes, but it’s usually ready to go right away.

If you like your buns crispy, lightly grill the hamburger buns.  Then place the bun on a plate and spoon on the pulled pork.  Add cheese and coleslaw if desired.

Take a bite.  Yum!  Take a second bite. Amazing!  You get the idea.
