Pulled Pork

This is super easy, super good. Something to make on Superbowl Sunday!


  • 4 - 5 lb pork roast, thawed
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Ad
  • 2 bottles of Kansas City style BBQ sauce
  • water, as needed
  • hamburger or hot dog buns


Coat the inside of the crock pot with vegetable spray, like Pam. Place 1/2 of the onion slices in the bottom of the crock pot. Put pork roast on top of the onions. Top with remaining onions. Pour the 2 bottles of BBQ sauce on top of the onions and roast. Add 1 cup of water.

Cover with lid. Cook for 8 hours, until meat is easily separated with 2 forks.

Once roast is done, remove from the crock pot carefully, and place on a cookie sheet to cool. Once cool enough to handle, pull the meat apart into shreds.

Stir the sauce and onions in the crock pot. Add water, slowly, if needed for a thinner sauce. Return the meat to the crockpot and mix. Warm thoroughly, before serving.


Use hamburger or hot dog buns. If you plan to serve the pulled pork with coleslaw, hot dog buns work best. The hot dog buns work well for kids too.

If there is any left, I put bun-sized amounts of meat into small plastic tubs and freeze. The smaller meal size are quick and easy to pop into your lunch bag or just for a quick meal.

Source: This is my own recipe, after a few "trial runs". It is very easy to do on any day. I make extra to freeze in a meal-sized portion for one of those days you don't feel like cooking.

This sounds amazing and I was wondering what type of roast you use?
