Description

Delicious and juicy pulled pork sandwiches. Top with creamy coleslaw and sliced dill pickles for heaven on a bun! This recipe serves a crowd, but you can freeze the leftover meat for another day if you wish!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Medium Onion
  • 5 pounds Pork Shoulder/pork Butt
  • 2 cups Ketchup
  • 1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 5 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 6 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 teaspoons Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 2 teaspoons Pepper

Preparation

Throw chopped onion in the bottom of a large crock pot, lay pork on top. Whisk together remaining ingredients. Taste. Does it need more vinegar? More cayenne pepper? More salt? Adjust seasonings to taste, then pour 2/3 of the sauce over the pork in the crock. Cook on low heat for 8 – 10 hours or until pork shreds easily with a fork. Once pork is shredded (shred while keeping it in the crockpot), you can add remaining sauce, if necessary. I like my pork to be saucy…if you don’t, you can pass the remaining sauce around with the pork when you serve it. Just make sure that the pulled pork stays moist.

Serve on a bun with sliced dill pickles and coleslaw.

PS – this is a great BBQ sauce recipe for BBQ chicken or ribs too!

* If you use a leaner cut of meat, you may need extra sauce.

Made this a couple of days ago….it was fantastic. The barbeque sauce is very tasty….perfect balance between acid, sweet and hot. I’ll use this sauce next time I do ribs in the Big Green Egg.
Also, the sandwich with slaw and pickles was to die for!!
For me, doing a pork butt in a slow cooker is the only way to ensure succulent, tender meat in the end. YUMMY…Thank you Lindsey!

This looks so good. I am going to try it tomorrow. Should be a great dinner to go along with the pre season football games!

This got a good but not great response from my adult son and I although my husband loved it. One commented that there was a flavor in the sauce that was unfamiliar (although not sure what it could have been since all ingredients were already on hand.

This was so good. I made it Saturday morning so we could eat it while watching a football game Saturday night, it was in the crock pot for about 12 hrs. My husband is still talking about how good it was! The leftovers are awesome! I will be making this again.
