Easy & Tender Crock Pot Pulled Pork Barbecue Recipe

This is a recipe is another from my Meme (my dad’s mom). I don’t really remember her making the pork, though she made the barbecue sauce quite often. I’m not sure why not, though — it’s super easy (as most crock pot recipes are) and makes pork so tender that it falls apart. This would be an ideal pulled pork recipe for family gatherings — you could easily feed 8-10 people, depending on the size of your butt (Sir Mix-a-lot approves). Especially for days when you’d rather spend time with your guests than slave over a barbecue pit. (Or maybe you’re like me and don’t own or know how to operate such a thing.)

I’ve made this several times, and it’s always delicious. We had my sister and her boyfriend over last night to help us eat it and still have plenty of leftovers for lunch and dinner tonight! I bet you could modify this to where you make the pulled pork, then use it in a variety of dishes throughout the week. We’re fine with simply warming up the leftovers and eating barbecue sandwiches.

Let me know if you try this recipe! I’d love to hear what you think and how you end up using the pork.
