This is the easiest dinner you will ever make. I’m serious. I don’t know why I don’t make it twice a week.
This pulled pork recipe requires three ingredients and a crockpot. That’s it. And it’s delicious.
All you do is take an onion, slice it, and lay it in the bottom of a crockpot. Place a pork shoulder roast on top, sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper, turn the crockpot on low and forgetaboutit.
In six or eight hours, open the lid and dump your favorite barbecue sauce in. If you want, you can let it cook for another hour and allow the flavors to sink in. Or, if you’re lazy like me, you can turn it off and start shredding right then and there. The sauce will mix in and it will taste just fine.
I use two forks to pull the meat apart and shred it. If it doesn’t come apart easily, you didn’t cook it long enough.
Serve it on a roll (I use Udi’s Gluten Free Hot Dog Rolls) with your favorite sides.
It doesn’t get any easier than that!
- 3-4 pound pork shoulder
- 1 onion
- 1 jar BBQ sauce
- salt and pepper
- Udi’s Gluten Free Hot Dog Rolls
- Slice a large sweet onion into discs and drop them into the bottom of a crockpot.
- Sprinkle the pork loin on all sides with salt and pepper and place it on top of the onions in the crockpot.
- Cover and cook on low for six to eight hours or until the pork is falling apart.
- Turn off the crockpot and pour BBQ sauce over the pork to taste; reserve some for serving.
- With two forks, shred the pork and mix in the onions and BBQ sauce.
- Serve on a roll with your favorite sides.

I love pulled pork, always have and usually if it’s on a menu that’s what I get. I like to make mine at home just like this but Mr. Right is leery of it. One of the first times I made pork in the crock pot he ended up getting sick. I think it was a coincidence but he’s convinced I didn’t cook it long enough.
hmmm…..well, when I do make it that just means more for me! (That’s what I tell myself anyway, but he always ends up eating a little of it!) 🙂
I do several versions of this. Sometimes I use chicken breasts and bar-b-q sauce on a roll. We also like pork seasoned with onion, oregano, salt and pepper. Pull it apart and roll it in tortillas with cheese. Yum! Also this freezes well so I always make a bunch and then freeze what is left in individual servings.
I saw a tip on Pinterest to use those chicken or turkey bags with ties (designed for the oven) in your crock pot. They won’t burn. The usual time, low for 8 hours or high for 6 hours. I tried my version of pulled pork (much like this one). The bag rose with steam and lifted the lid but cooked just fine. I just pushed it back down when I got home and saw it. Crock pot was clean too!!!
Made pulled pork sandwiches last night thanks to this simple recipe idea!
