Slow Cooker Pulled Pork SandwichesAngie McGowan
My family loves pulled pork, but I have this thing with perfection. My favorite recipe takes 2 – 3 days. It drives my family, plus the whole neighborhood crazy because all they get is to smell the pork for hours and hours. The last time I posted my favorite pulled pork sandwich recipe on my site, one of the readers wished it didn’t take so long. So I finally listened and came back with this interpretation for a pulled pork sandwich that takes less than a day. I used my crockpot to slow cook a small boneless boston butt to make this pulled pork. I let it slow cook all day and then added a bottle of barbecue sauce in the last 30 minutes of cooking. It was really easy to do. I used white zinfandel wine to cook my pork, but you can use any sweeter wine, or skip the wine all together. You can substitute the wine with beer, soda, or stock. I served it with an easy old-fashioned coleslaw you can find on my site.
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches Recipe
2-3 lb boneless Boston Butt
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups liquid (I used white zinfandel wine)
1 – 18 oz bottle barbecue sauce
1. Mix paprika, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a little bowl. Then use spices as a rub for the meat. Add pork to crockpot and pour in liquid. Add garlic and onions. Turn crockpot on low for 8-10 hours.
2. The pork should be completely falling apart after cooking. Pour off liquid, reserving about 1/4 cup. Shred the pork with a fork and add barbecue sauce. Mix well. Turn crockpot to high for about 30 minutes, or until heated through.
