Tender pulled pork made in your crockpot, simple to make and delicious!
Imagine Coming in the door from a long day away to the most amazing smell of a tender pulled pork crockpot roast already to serve! That is exactly what happened this past week when I took 10 minutes in the morning to mix my marinade, and pour it over the pork roast that I placed in our crock pot. I pushed the start button and was out the door. How simple is that.
My Children told me this was the best pulled pork crockpot recipe I had ever made. They even begged for seconds and that doesn’t usually happen in our house! If you want to prepare a delicious meal that is quick and easy I highly recommend this one! If you do try it please let me know in the comments below what you think.

I was able to get a pork butt on sale for 10.00 and I fed 8 people 2 meals from this one roast! We shredded the pork when it was done cooking. I then pulled any extra fat out from the meat, skimmed off the fat from the drippings and poured the remaining juices over the pork. I separated the roast into two portions and set one aside to place in the freezer for another day. This will be great for a day when I just don’t feel like cooking or I am short on time. Have I already told you how much I love my Crockpot? If not, I do and you can get one Here if you don’t have one of your own to love on!
Tender Pulled Pork Crockpot Recipe
Start with a Pork Butt or Shoulder Mine was about 9 pounds
- Mix 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
- and 3 cloves of garlic crushed
- Then take 3 tablespoons of paprika
- 1 teaspoon of salt (more or less depending on your taste)
- 1/2 tsp of black pepper
- 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper
- 1 table spoon of onion powder
- and 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
Mix all of the wet ingredients and the garlic and set aside.
Then stir together the dry ingredients and pour into the wet ingredients and stir well.
Take one onion and cute it in half and place it in the bottom of the crockpot. This will elevate the roast off of the bottom of the pot allowing juices and marinade to mix.
Cover the crock pot with the lid and cook on low hear or 6 hours.
When the roast is done, trim away any fat and proceed to shred the pork. Then use a fork and shred the meat. Next, after the drippings have cooled a bit, skim the fat from the top of the drippings and pour the juices that are left over the shredded pork.
serve with sliced red onions if you like, rolls, shredded cheese on top, and if you feel the need BBQ sauce. I thought this was so good and it didn’t need BBQ sauce in my opinion.
