Absolutely the VERY BEST pulled pork recipe I have come across! Easy to make and super flavorful. This recipe makes quite a bit, so feel free to cut in half if you wish.

  • 1/4 c. Worcestershire sauce

Step 1

Combine all the ingredients except the roast in a bowl; whisk together until well combined. Pour a bit of sauce on the bottom of crock pot, add roast and pour the remaining sauce over roast. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until pork is tender and easily pulls apart.

Remove roast from cooker and, working in pieces, shred pork using two forks. Place shredded pork back in slow cooker, toss in the sauce and serve with rolls. For more recipes and photos, visit my blog at
