Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I am a huge fan of using my CrockPot!  I just love easy-peasy yummy meals that will feed a crowd – mostly ’cause that’s what I’ve got at my house. A crowd.

This is one of my favorites.  Enjoy!  Thanks to my sweet friend Lisa over at Simply This That and the Other for the picture!

Heidi’s Crockin’ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

*make ahead in your slow cooker


  • Shoulder Pork Roast (a loin roast is fine but it will take longer)
  • Whole cloves if you have them
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • ¼ cup chili powder
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • Hoagie rolls or hamburger buns

Let your slow cooker do the work for you!  Start this recipe in the morning or cook it overnight!

Poke small holes in roast with a knife and insert whole cloves into the roast. Do this as many times as you like.

Place water and chili powder in the slow cooker and add the clove-studded roast. Add salt and pepper. Cover.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours. When done, the meat should shred very easily.. Take the roast out of the slow cooker. Remove the cloves and discard. Cut away any fat. Shred the remaining meat and place into large bowl.

Dump BBQ sauce into the bowl and add some leftover broth (fat skimmed off) from the slow cooker to the meat until it the shredded pork is the desired consistency.

Serve on hoagie rolls or hamburger buns.

This is an excellent recipe to make ahead. When you’re ready to serve, simply add a little water and reheat. Freezes well.

  1. That’s good to hear. I’ve scorched meat before in a crock pot, so I’ve been shy to use them again. I’ll give this one a try though. It would be so much easier to get dinner out of the way in the morning before things get hectic. 🙂

  2. Shoudler Pork Roast- Does this mean I need to roast the meat in the oven first before putting in the crock pot? Just wondering what that meant as I’m Asian.
