Fall-apart-tender pulled pork is cooked low and slow in a simple marinade that enhances the natural flavors of the pork. It is a mouthwatering dish that is excellent on sandwiches, wraps, or salads. We like to pair it with coleslaw or with mashed potatoes, or crispy baked potato wedges.
Sweet, smoky, and crowd-pleasing – this crockpot pulled pork recipe is the best you’ll ever make! It is a staple at home, and everyone loves it! The best part is you can freeze any leftover pulled pork for an easy and quick weeknight dinner.

How to make Pulled Pork
Step 1: Into the bottom of a slow cooker, add one large chopped onion.
Step 2: Mix 1 tablespoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and 1 teaspoon paprika and sprinkle the mixture generously on the pork roast. Massage the mixture to the pork roast to coat. On top of the onions, nestle the meat.
Step 3: To make the marinade, whisk 1 c. chicken broth, 1 c. BBQ sauce, 1 tablespoon liquid smoke, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 3 pressed garlic cloves until well combined. Then, pour this over the pork.
Step 4: Cover the slow cooker and set it on low for 8 hours. When done, transfer the meat to a large bowl and discard any fat. Using two forks, shred the meat. Over the meat, pour any drippings from the pot. Lastly, brush the pork with the warm barbecue sauce
Step 5: Serve and enjoy!
