This is really Crock-Pot Pulled Pork part 2, as Part one never ended up getting eaten. Part one made it into the Crock pot bright and early in the morning, in the afternoon I pulled it all apart, got it all ready with the BBQ sauce put it back in the crock pot, but forgot to plug it back in. Needless to say we had McDonald’s for dinner. So I went and bought another cut of Pork and tried again the next day! Good thing as it was yummy!
In the Prep time I am including the prep in the middle to shred.
Pork Butt Roast (Shoulder Can Be Used As Well) Approximately 3-5 Pounds
1 Onion Sliced
2 Small Cans of Pineapple Juice (or 2 Cups)
1 Bottle of your Favorite Barbecue Sauce-16 Ounces
1 Cup of Shredded Onion
At least one Slow Cooker Liner
I strongly suggest you use a liner, this will make the removal of the moisture/grease a lot easier which you need to do later.
Normal pulled pork cuts are done with a Butt or a Shoulder cut.
Spray the liner with pam.
In the crock-pot put a few slices of onion down and then place the Butt Roast and put the rest of the onion slices on top.
Pour the pineapple juice over the top of it.
Cook for 4-5 hours on high.
You can also cook this on low all day for about 8 hours but will still need to do the next step, so this is not a great recipe to do while your at work and come home and finish and have the ability to eat once you get home…FYI.
After the 4-5 hours, pull out and put in a bowl, as your pulling apart with a couple of forks, remove any fat.
Add the Barbecue Sauce and shredded onion, and mix well.
If you have used a liner you can easily pull out the liner and discard the entire contents into the trash.
If you have not used a liner you will need to carefully drain all the liquids out and clean the crock-pot.
Since I’m all about not scrubbing the crock-pot I put in a new liner and put in the pulled-pork, and now put on low for about 3 hours stirring about half way through.
Hi I'm Sarah, I live in very rural Kansas with my 3 children. We also have 3 hens, Betty Lou, Dinozzo, Jenny Jewel. Our fun involves gardening, living in an iconic area of the country where corn fields,small towns, tractors, farmers and hard work are still very important and occasionally when we need some adventure we drive on over the border to Missouri where the real shopping stores are...aka Target. I grew up in Utah so I enjoy commemorating with Heidi over everything Rocky Mountains.
