One of the best pulled pork recipes I've had! I used two 2 pound pork butt shoulders, cut them in half, and then followed the recipe. I pulled the pork after about 12 hours in the slow cooker, it tore very easily and I just used two forks since there was no bone. I wasn't going to need it until later, so I put about a 1/2 cup of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and the pork into a Tupperware container, mixed it up, and stuck it in the fridge. I served it with the same sauce. I was just sweet enough, and leaving it in with the sauce gave it just the kind of sweet flavor I love. Going to make it again next week!
Excellent, but this recipe can be made even easier. (For other reviewers who are browning the meat - there's really no need. Since it's shredded, browning the meat doesn't add much to the flavor or color.) I just put the pork in, even without salting it sometimes, then pour about 2/3 to a full bottle of BBQ sauce on top and cook on low for 6-8 hrs. or high for 4-5 hrs. Adding the beef broth just makes it soupy and the pork gives off a lot of juice while cooking anyway. BBQ sauce alone can tenderize the pork perfectly. And I tried with and without coffee and it made no difference in flavor or tenderness - so don't bother. When pork is done, I shred the pork, add the remaining BBQ sauce or how ever much you want and let it sit in the crock pot on high for another 30-1hr to heat through. I like Stubbs Original BBQ sauce (a little spicy) or Stubbs Mesquite BBQ sauce (thick & sweet) or mix 1/2 and 1/2 of each. Eat with warm Kaiser buns and you're in heaven. So easy to make but taste like a lot of work. Awe
I've made this twice now. It was fall-apart tender both times. It was no trouble at all to shred for sandwiches. First time followed the recipe nearly exactly. I used low-sodium beef broth & added a little liquid smoke as suggested - it was good but a little bland (that's why only 4 stars). The second time I didn't have beef broth on hand so substituted regular chicken broth & left out the coffee. Browned the meat before putting it in the slow-cooker & again added a little liquid smoke. Much, much better the 2nd time. The kids really loved it so it will definitely go into regular rotation at our house.
This was so good! Plus I got bonus points for "pulling my own pork", too bad I told everyone how easy it was!
I made this tonight and my husband just about died - he loved this so much! He says it is the best pulled pork sandwich he has ever had! He also said this was the best thing I ever cooked (and I am a fairly good cook). I agree - it is really good! We usually drive 40 minutes to a restaurant in Maine so he can get a pulled pork sandwich. We are going to save money and a lot on gas now! I made a smaller roast because my crock pot is small, so I cut the recipe in half. (Our 2.5 lb. roast made about 5 good-sized sandwiches.) I used Hunt's BBQ "Hickory" sauce and it was perfect (not too sweet and slightly smokey). I added a small amount to the shredded pork and then we added extra on our sandwiches as needed. I served the shredded pork on toasted kaiser rolls. Really good!
Sooo tasty! and easy! Just put in crock pot with a jar of BBQ sauce and shredded it for the superbowl. It was a big hit!
I increased the coffee to 1 1/2 cups. I have made this several times. My family loves it. Very simple, fast, and the ingredients are always available. I also sprinkle Tone's Canadian Steak Seasoning(from Sam's Club) on the pork roast.
