Pulled Pork Recipe

Pulled Pork Notes

This is my favorite recipe for pulled pork. I love making it in the crock pot so it's almost ready when I get home. This makes a lot so it's great for leftovers. If the sauce isn't thick enough, top it with your favorite bottled sauce.

Serves / Yields

8 servings

Preparation Instructions

Heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, cook until soft. Add garlic, chili powder, mesquite powder. Cook, stirring, one minute. Add chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and Worcestershire. Stir, bring to a boil. Place pork in slow cooker. Pour sauce over top. Cover and cook on low 10-12 hours or until pork is falling apart. Transfer meat to cutting board and shred. Return shredded meat to crock pot and stir to coat in sauce.

Helpful Hints

The seasonings are to taste. You may want more smoke flavor, or add some cayenne for heat. The sauce is a little on the thin side, but if you make this a day ahead and reheat it, you'll find the sauce to be much thicker.
