Super Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Barbecue Sandwiches. Tender and juicy pulled pork smothered in barbecue sauce.
Slow cookers are a great way to cook pulled pork low and slow without keeping the oven on all day. The meat ends up super tender, juicy and loaded with flavor. These Pulled Pork Sandwiches are really easy to make and are pretty much impossible to mess up.
When I say this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is easy to make I mean it. I place the pork roast in the slow cooker overnight and when I wake up I have perfectly cooked tender pulled pork. I like to cook the pulled pork overnight and place in the fridge to reheat for dinner. You will need 11 hours to cook this pulled pork so make sure you give yourself enough time to cook.
The roast gets cooked in a homemade dry rub made of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, chili powder, brown sugar, salt and pepper. There is no liquid added to the slow cooker.
How to make pulled pork in a slow cooker
To make these Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Barbecue Sandwiches drizzle some olive oil in the bottom of a slow cooker. Place the pork in the slow cooker and rub with the seasoning. Take out the roast and strain the liquid. Shred the pork and add back to the slow cooker along with you favorite barbecue sauce. Cook for an additional hour and serve! Use homemade barbecue sauce, store bought or try my Bourbon Barbecue Sauce.
