Slow Cooker Pulled Pork {Crock Pot}

Who doesn’t love a good slow cooker recipe?!  It’s truly the best of both all worlds – you come home from work and your house smells wonderful, you don’t have to turn on the oven for hours and there aren’t a bunch of dishes to clean up afterwards.  Win, win in my book!

We had company for dinner the a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to make something that didn’t require me standing in the kitchen the entire time that they were at my house.  I hate trying to cook dinner and entertain at the same time.  (Add into the mix a house full of kids running around too and my brain gets a little fuzzy.)  So this was the perfect recipe!
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Source: My Recipes
* 4 pounds pork roast (shoulder or butt)
* 2 large onions sliced (I used a sweet onion)
* 1 cup ginger ale
* 1 bottle (18oz) bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
* 1 bottle barbecue sauce for serving (optional)
Slice one onion and place in the bottom of the crock pot.
Put in the roast and cover with the other onion, sliced. Pour over the ginger ale. Cover and cook on LOW for about 12 hours.


Remove the meat, strain and save the onions, discard all liquid. With two forks, shred the meat, discarding any remaining fat, bones or skin (if any). Most of the fat will have melted away.
Return the shredded meat and the onions to the crock pot, stir in the barbecue sauce. Continue to cook for another 4 to 6 hours on LOW.
Serve with hamburger buns or rolls and additional barbecue sauce.
This was an easy recipe to make and it’s delicious!  My house smelled wonderful!   We served our sandwiches with our Ranch BLT Pasta Salad.  Perfect combination!
