Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork adapted from allrecipes.com
This recipe is for 8 servings but I doubled it (plus a little more) to have about 20 servings.
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 (2lb) pork shoulder roast
1 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 extra large onion, chopped
2 large cloves, crushed
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
8 hamburger buns
2 tablespoons butter
Directions: Pour the vegetable oil into the bottom of a slow cooker. Place the pork roast into the slow cooker; pour in the BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, and chicken broth. Stir in the brown sugar, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, onion, garlic, and thyme. Cover and cook on High until the roast shreds easily with a fork 5 to 6 hours.
Remove the roast from the slow cooker, shred the meat using two forks. Return the shredded pork to the slow cooker, and stir the meat into the juices.
Spread the inside of both halves of hamburger buns with butter. Toast the buns, butter side down, in a skillet over medium heat until golden brown. Spoon pork into the toasted buns.
-I didn’t use brown sugar.
-I didn’t toast the buns.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Chop up the onions.
Chop the garlic.
Pour the oil into the bottom of a slow cooker and lay the pork on top.
Pour the BBQ sauce over the meat.
Add the rest of the ingredients.
I cooked it on 375 for about 4 hours and then I turned it down to 300 for another hour.
Pull the pork from the cooker and shred it.
Put the shredded meat back into the sauce. Turn it on low until ready to serve.
Here’s what you’ll end up with:
