Slow cooker pulled pork is one of the easiest and most delicious dinner recipes you will ever make. It’s spiced with a rich BBQ flavor and is great on sandwiches, in wraps, and even on salads.

You’ll have everyone saying, “Damn, she makes a mean pulled pork!”

Dear Marble,

I adore you. You are always smiling. Your tail is always wagging. I can’t help but pet you. Seriously though, I am shaving your ever-shedding self the first chance I get. The hairballs I sweep up on a daily basis are just crazy.



 Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

The dinner to remember, because it’s the comfort food you can’t forget about.

By the way, do you call it a slow cooker or a Crock Pot? Because inquiring minds need to know. One is a generic term for it and the other is a brand name. It’s kind of weird how people use them interchangeably.



Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork

  • 1 Onion
  • 3 lb boneless pork loin (this could be done with pork shoulder or another cut, but I’m telling you, the loin is delicious)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon steak seasoning (I use 20% less sodium Montreal Steak Seasoning)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbs hot sauce
  • 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce

Place pork in crock pot, over the chopped onion and season with cumin and steak seasoning on high for 6 to 7 hours (or until it pulls apart with a fork easily). Pull the pork and add everything else. Sometimes I make on the fly adjustments of more brown sugar or hot sauce. It’s really easy to tweak to your own taste.


Cook's Tip for Making Slow Cooker Pulled Pork: Try different BBQ sauces with this recipe. I have my favorite, but experimenting is always exciting!

This slow cooker pulled pork is great on kaiser rolls with pepper jack cheese, as a grilled quesadilla with American cheese and spinach (yes, something about the American cheese made it magical), or over a baked potato. Really, I haven’t found a way this pulled pork isn’t good yet.
