Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


We have a pulled pork recipe that is a staple in our home.  Everyone loves a great pulled pork sandwich, but most people do not have 5 or more hours to cook on the grill after working all day.  The key is to start out with a good quality piece of pork.  I love cooking with boneless pork butt (shoulder).  Now, I know there are differing opinions on whether to get bone-in or boneless, but for me the best bet is boneless.  The slow cooker method makes a delicious faux smoking method when apple cider vinegar and liquid smoke are used.  This is definitely a delicious, healthy, and inexpensive meal that can be made for your family.  The uses for the leftover pork are endless!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


4-5 lb boneless pork butt (shoulder)

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

2 cups water

1 Tbs liquid smoke

1 bottle of your favorite or homemade BBQ sauce (I used Bone Suckin’ Sauce)


Combine ingredients through liquid smoke in a slow cooker.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours.  Take out pork and let cool until able to shred with two forks.  Discard cooking liquid from the slow cooker. Put the meat in the slow cooker with sauce for 30  minutes on high.  Serve and Enjoy!
