Here’s how I my super easy Pulled Pork recipe.
Pulled Pork Recipe
- 1 (3-5 pound) Pork Shoulder Blade Roast, Pork Butt or Picnic
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce or coconut aminos
- 2 cups barbeque sauce optional
Place pork into the slow cooker. Add a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce to the meat. 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. About an hour before your time has expired, add about ½ - ¾ of your BBQ sauce.
Allow the pork to rest about 5-10 minutes. Then, pull the pork into large pieces using two forks.
Serve warm with remaining BBQ sauce.
If the pork butt rendered a large amount of pan juices, drain some of the juices away before adding the BBQ sauce.
Store any leftover pulled pork in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Allow the pulled pork to cool and then store in a freezer-safe container in the freezer for up to 3 months.

If you are like my husband and sometimes prefer to not use BBQ sauce on your pulled pork, you might like this pork roast recipe instead. It uses a dry rub instead of the wet BBQ sauce. So many options!
