Barbecued Pork Sandwiches - Crockpot

My favorite Pulled Pork Recipe, adapted from a Better Homes and Gardens recipe for the crockpot. I like to serve them on Hard Rolls or French Rolls. It also is great for lunches the next day and freezes well. Update 2013: I've learned to shred the meat with my Kitchenaid Stand Mixer and the paddle blade (if you have the bowl cover use it! It makes this so much faster!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim Fat From Meat.

I made this to take to the race track. Everyone always seems to end up our our racing trailor for food. Imade this as written and everyone enjoyed this. This was a bit of work for me but it was well worth it. Made for Spring PAC 2010.

Fantastic! I didn't have any dried cloves so I substituted a bbq spice I had. I also ran out of worcestershire sauce after the first tablespoon so I used 3 tablespoons of Emeril's steak sauce. Loved it....thank you!

My family loved this recipe! The meat was incredibly tender and I loved that it didn't have the typical bbq sauce flavor. Honestly, the meat was so nice that I think I would have like that just fine on its own! I halved the amount of meat because it made quite a bit, but I did make the full amount of sauce and froze half so I don't have to make it next time. I think I will add some pureed vegetables to it next time though to sneak some extra vegis in for my kids as this would hide them well! Thanks for the great recipe.
