Easy BBQ Pulled Pork Crock Pot Recipe

see more by

This easy BBQ pulled pork crock pot recipe to put on hawaiian rolls with tangy coleslaw is a family-friendly weeknight dinner and would also make a great Superbowl party meal.

A friend gave me this recipe several years ago and I’ve since tweaked it a bit and passed it around to more friends. Double (or triple) it for your next party, always a crowd pleaser!

If you have leftovers, re-purpose the pulled pork for some southwest style tacos or grab a pizza crust at the store + your fave cheese for a bbq style pizza.  (When you pull it out of the oven, drizzle with a little of your favorite ranch and sprinkle with green onion + cilantro-yum!)  The opportunities are endless!

There’s a recipe for a delish/quick homemade BBQ sauce but if you’re in a hurry just grab a bottle of your favorite.

Oh, and another thing- this creamy slaw packs some tang…have some fun & try with a bag of broccoli slaw if you feel so inclined!?!


For the Pork

1 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup worchestershire sauce

1/8 cup brown sugar

4 garlic cloves, minced

1/8 tsp dried crushed pepper

4lb pork butt (shoulder) roast (this can be separate smaller roasts)

Season the pork butt with a little salt and pepper.  Grab a large saute pan and brown the pork on all sides.

Put all ingredients in crock pot & mix.  Place pork in sauce.  Cover & turn on low for at least 8 hours.  Turn roast over halfway through.  When 8 hours is up, remove meat & let it cool.  Remove meat from bone & shred.

Discard most of the cooking liquid, adding a little back to the meat once it’s shredded.


Homemade BBQ Sauce

1 1/2 cup ketchup

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (or sub apple cider if you like it more sweet vs. tangy)

1/2 cup worchestershire

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 tbsp dijon mustard

Bring all ingredients to a boil in a heavy saucepan.  Reduce heat to low & simmer until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, for about 15 mins.

(You will have extra, store in an airtight container in your fridge.)



1/2 cup mayo

1 tbsp sour cream

1 tbsp grated onion

1 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp vinegar

1/2 tbsp dry mustard

1 tsp celery salt

1 bag cole slaw
Mix dressing & toss with cole slaw.



1 package Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls

I like to put the pulled pork on the roll, drizzle with a bit of warm BBQ sauce and top with the creamy cole slaw.  And now my mouth is watering…

(If serving for a party, let the guests assemble their own for an interactive, low maintenance main course, and that way the sandos won’t get soggy.)
