BBQ pork is my weakness. I love it on sandwiches, tacos, salads and even for making nachos. If you’re a bbq pork fanatic too and want an easy way to make it home, try this slow cooker bbq pulled pork recipe today!
Whenever I’m given the choice of where to eat when we’re dining out, I choose a BBQ joint about 75% of the time. Of course, my husband never complains. He loves it just as much as I do. But while he sticks to his usual order of a half rack of ribs, I try anything and everything with pulled pork.
Loaded baked potatoes with pulled pork? Check. Pulled pork nachos? Umm, yes, please! (By the way, the best EVER pulled pork nachos I’ve had are at Smokey Bones Fire and Grill… just saying.) Pulled pork sandwiches, pulled pork wraps and pulled pork salads are a few more of the entrees I’ve tried.
Honestly? I love them all.
But when I don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on restaurant bbq, I make it at home in the slow cooker. No, it’s not quite the same… after all… a slow cooker version could never compare to meat that’s been in a smoker for hours, but this version is pretty tasty nonetheless.
And it’s an easy way to get my bbq fix when I don’t feel like leaving the house. Just grab a pork roast, plop it in the crock pot, add the rest of the ingredients and then do nothing all day while the smell of bbq pork fills your house. You can thank me later!
