When I first learned how to make pulled pork in the crockpot, it was a meal planning game changer for sure. Pulled pork can be used in a variety of ways. My family’s favorite is pressed between crusty bread, mustard, pickles, and swiss cheese. Crockpot pulled pork is awesome because it takes a long time, which means you’ll have an amazing dinner ready when you get home from a hectic day.
Here’s the recipe:
5 Ingredient Crockpot Pulled Pork
Serves 6 and leftovers
5 pound boneless pork loin,
1 large can tomato sauce,
1 cup distilled white vinegar,
1/2 cup molasses,
Trader Joe’s BBQ Rub and Seasoning (or other pork rub)
Pour tomato sauce, white vinegar, and molasses into the crockpot. On a baking tray, lay out your pork loin and rub it down with the spice rub. Coat in spice rub completely. Put seasoned pork loin in the crockpot, fatty side down. Set the crockpot on low for 10 hours. In 10 hours, gently take the pork loin out of the crockpot and pull apart with a fork. The “sauce” left in the crockpot can be transferred to a stockpot and reduced into a flavorful, rich BBQ sauce. You can add brown sugar, molasses, or vinegar to taste. Personally, I think it’s fine on its own. 🙂
You can do so many things with pulled pork. You can make:
Pulled Pork Tacos
Pulled Pork & Mac n Cheese
Pulled Pork, Rice, and Beans
Pulled Pork & Eggs
The sky is truly the limit with this. Crockpot Pulled Pork is also great as a snack for littles. It’s soft and bite sized. My toddler really loves pulled pork on a plate or on a grilled cheese. I love it because it’s literally “set it and forget it”. The leftovers have so many meal options that are quick and easy. And my whole family enjoys it. It’s flavorful, diet-friendly, and impressive to guests.
