How to Make the Best Pulled Pork Recipe in the Slow Cooker

To make our pulled pork in the slow cooker, add your pork, coconut aminos or Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings to the slow cooker in the morning before you head off to work or the day’s activities and you’ll be greeted with a dinner you can have on the table in a flash. I especially love to do this on busy weeknights or even busy weekends so that we have a hearty home cooked meal waiting on us in the evenings.

This slow cooker pulled pork is also perfect for serving on holidays, while tailgating or watching football games and really any time you want an easy, yet delicious and comforting meal to serve!

What to Serve with Pulled Pork

Classic pulled pork (at least in my neck of the woods) is served with sauce on the side, along with pickles and maybe potato chips. But, here are a few of the side dishes that I always love with my pulled pork, whether served as a platter or a pulled pork sandwich!

And for dessert, the Southern classic is to serve pulled pork with:

Cream Cheese Pound Cake or Lemon Pound Cake

Whenever I make it, I feel like my kitchen has turned into the most popular BBQ joint when I’m putting these babies on the table. And they are so easy to prepare, you’ll swear you’ll never eat them from a restaurant again.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place pork into the slow cooker. Add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce to the meat along with the Stone House Seasoning. Cook on low setting of slow cooker for 8-10 hours. Leave meat in the slow cooker on the “warm” setting for about 4 more hours or until the meat easily will pull with two forks. 

  2. Allow the pork to rest about 5-10 minutes. Then, pull the pork into large pieces using two forks.
  3. Serve warm with your favorite BBQ sauce.

Notes

If the pork butt rendered a large amount of pan juices, drain some of the juices away before adding the BBQ sauce.

Make-Ahead:
Store any leftover pulled pork in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. 

Freezer Friendly:
Allow the pulled pork to cool and then store in a freezer-safe container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  2. oh pulled pork… how do I love thee??? ALL THE TIME! SO SO good!!

    I dont even use vinegar- just one can of Root Beer in the crock pot with my pork. Drain it, and add your fave bbq sauce after shredding. SO EASY!

  3. Thank you for this share, we love pulled pork!

  4. This is a favorite around here too! Randy makes some mean pulled pork. YUM!

  5. You know what’s yummy on a pulled pork sandwich? Cole slaw and Tiger Sauce. Have you tried it before?

  9. How perfect is this for the start of tailgate season? PERFECT! Go Clemson Tigers – it’s game day today! xoxo

  10. Robin,
    I love Brunswick stew Do you have a recipe?

  11. Im just in awe that you got that bark and what looks kinda like a smoke ring in a slow cooker? Your pulling our leg! Do you ever use an electric pressure cooker? Im thinknig of doing this tomorrow in a pressure cooker

    Thanks!

  12. So you cook it for 8-10 hours and then 4 more hours on warm? I just want to make sure I do it right 🙂 Also, which meat do you usually use out of the three options you gave?
    Thank you so much!!

    • Hi Libby,
      I do! That amount of time for the pork on warm really does the trick for the most tender pork I’ve ever cooked! I hope you enjoy it! As for the cut of the pork, I generally go with whatever my local grocer has at the moment. Being in a fairly small town, my grocery store doesn’t always have all three available. 🙂

      • Thank you so much for responding!! I can’t wait to try this! I have never commented here but I’ve been following you for years and I love your recipes! They are so easy to follow and delicious!! Thanks so much again 🙂

      • You are most welcome, Libby! I hope you enjoy this – I make it all the time and we love it!
        I’m so happy to hear that you enjoy the recipes! I sincerely appreciate you letting me know this and hope you continue to find recipes that you enjoy! Thanks! xo

  13. Will enjoy this recipe! Looking at the nutrition info I have a question, Robin. It says one serving is 595mg sodium. is that JUST for the meat, before any sauce? If so, WOW that seems high. If you were including your choice of sauce with the meat, would you please note the nutrition info for the meat only? Thanks.

  14. Thanks so much for all of these great recipes. I am relatively new to all this and would like to know if you had your choice of the three cuts of meat, which one would you use ?? I have had slow cooked pulled pork (Boneless Boston Butt) on the charcoal cooker before but have no experience with the crock pot. Thank you, Jim Mann

  15. Where are the seasoning ingredients shown in the video? I don’t see it listed but the video recipe shows adding the seasoning. Thanks 

  16. The recipe lists 1 tablespoon of your stone house seasoning (which I love and use on many dishes). The video looks like you are using much more than 1 tablespoon. Is that 1 tablespoon just to clarify?

    • Hi Susan,
      I probably added a little more in the video – we love it so much that sometimes I add a little extra. The recipe amount is correct, but you can always add a bit more to taste if you wish.
      Thanks so much! xo
