Serve these hearty sandwiches with homemade or good-quality prepared coleslaw or potato salad from your favorite deli or upscale market. Traditionally, coleslaw is served atop the pork in the sandwich.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbs. canola or corn oil
  • 4 lb. boneless pork shoulder, cut into 3 equal pieces
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup light molasses
  • 2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • Soft sandwich rolls, split and toasted, for serving

Directions:

Brown the pork
In a large fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the pork pieces and brown well on all sides, about 12 minutes total. Transfer the pork to a slow cooker.

Make the sauce and cook the pork
Pour off all but about 1 Tbs. of the fat from the fry pan and return the pan to medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until golden, about 5 minutes. Add the vinegar and deglaze the pan, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the pan bottom. Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, molasses, red pepper flakes, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until the mixture begins to bubble. Pour over the pork. Cover and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions until the pork is very tender, 4 to 5 hours on high or 8 to 10 hours on low.

Shred the pork and serve
Transfer the pork pieces to a platter. Using a pair of forks, shred each piece of pork, removing and discarding any large pieces of fat. Skim the excess fat off the sauce, return the pulled pork to the sauce and stir to combine. Serve the pork and sauce atop the sandwich rolls. Serves 6 to 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Simple Easy Pulled Pork I love this recipe I use it with a 2lb loin for a small meal and a 9lb shoulder today to feed 8 with left overs. I just have to just the times and amount of sauce I make. It's always a hit. I don't use chili flakes I use black pepper, paprika, a pinch of Gebhart's chili powder, a dash of Tabasco or other southern style hot sauce. I also add a half to whole stout beer and when I pull the meat I separate the fat from the sauce and cook down the sauce in a pan strain it and pour it over the meat. I use the separated fat to add just enough to keep the meat moist as I pull it and discard the remaining fat juices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good but .... 2 tsps of red pepper flakes is too much....I have eaten a lot of pulled pork and don't remember any having too much heat (if any heat at all), I would cut way back on the red pepper flakes.....Maybe not use at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of our Favorites! This is one of our favorite meals! It is so easy to put together & the flavor is delicious. I don't do spicy so we cut the red pepper flakes to 1/4t. I also cut the brown sugar in half. We usually eat it on corn tortillas with avocado, sour cream and some fresh cilantro. We also eat it plain out of the crock pot, it's that good! Anytime we make it for friends they're wanting the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pulled Pork I've Ever Made I tried this recipe years ago and it's a staple in my house. People request this pulled pork at special events and even weddings - I am not a caterer by any stretch. I am a novice cook and this recipe is easy, fast (I usually prep the night before and turn on the slow cooker in the am) and there are lots of leftovers that freeze very well. Over the years the only thing I have ever tweaked is adding a bit of garlic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy and tasty !! This was easy and tasted so good. I modified the recipe. I used pork loin instead of pork shoulder I used syrup and honey instead of molasses I left out the dry mustard I prepared it at night and cook it on high for 6 hours. I served it on potato buns, with cheddar cheese and cole slaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! These were probably the best pulled pork I had ever had! Perfect blend of sweet, savory and spice! I did use about 2 1/2# of pork and the same amount of other ingredients! Still enjoying them as leftovers for lunches a couple of days later!
