Easy Pulled Pork in the Crock Pot

Updated: Aug 30

Crock pot. Dump and go. Easy. Those three words in a recipe have got my attention! When it comes to crock pot meals, they should ALWAYS be one pot. I do not want to get out another pan to sear the meat before putting it into the crock pot for 8-10 hours. There is no searing with this recipe, yet it contains all of the flavour! Also, you do not need to mix all of the add-ins before pouring it onto the meat, just add them all on top!


  • 2 tbsp oil

  • 4lb pork shoulder or boston butt

  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 4 garlick cloves

  • 1 sweet onion, cut into chunks

  • 2 tsp paprika, or you can use smoked paprika for more of a smokey flavour

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (not packed)

  • 3 tsp kosher salt (coarse)

  • 1 tsp pepper

  • 1 cup BBQ (do not use cheap, off brand BBQ)


  1. Place oil in crock pot, then add pork shoulder. If there is a thick layer of fat on it, you can shave some of it off with a knife.

  2. Add seasonings and ingredients.

  3. Cook low for 10 hours.

  4. Shred and enjoy with your favorite BBQ sauce on top! If you have a lot of leftover juices, you can pour some out, but you should leave in enough to keep the meat moist and saturated.

Simple and delicious. This pulled pork is sightly vinegary, slightly sweet, which is so yummy! It can also freeze for up to 4 months, which makes it a great meal prep item for quick dinners.

See you next Monday!
