I have to share an AMAZING new pulled pork recipe I tried last week!  I wanted to make Pulled Pork Sandwiches and I happened across Ree’s Spicy Shredded Pork Recipe – I made just a few minor changes due to what I had available.

**Update (Jan 20, 2017) This is still a family favorite that we make several times a year. Last week I took new photos for the post.

Let me tell you……….you have NOT had Pulled Pork until you’ve had this Amazing Pulled Pork! OMG, it was incredible! I mean, it was SOOOO good we all could NOT stop raving about it while eating, we ate the leftovers for 2 more meals (which we NEVER do) and it kept getting better each time we ate it!

It’s good with or without BBQ sauce.

Choosing The Right Barbecue Sauce

There are so many options when it comes to barbecue sauce. You go to the store and there are so many brands, flavors, and styles that make the decision too hard.

Luckily, I have the perfect solution to this problem! Whenever I make amazing pulled pork, especially for a crowd, I always set up a little barbeque sauce bar.

It’s a great way to let everyone mix and match, and discover the best combo ever! Just pick out a few different styles like; St. Louis sweet, honey barbeque, hot and smoky, and white barbeque sauce. That’s just my favorite spread, but feel free to pick out whatever you want!

If I really want everything to look right out of a barbeque joint, I’ll pour all the sauces into individual clear sauce bottles, throw a quick label on them, and line it all up next to the meat.

Amazing Pulled Pork ingredients

How to Prepare Amazing Pulled Pork

You will want a 4 – 7-pound pork butt roast or pork shoulder with the bone in.

Magic Bullet

You can use a small food processor, but I like to use my Magic Bullet to combine chili powder, brown sugar, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt, pepper, olive oil and red wine vinegar.

Wash your hands and rub the spice mixture all over the roast.

How Long Should I Cook Pulled Pork?

Next, I place the roast in my Nesco Slow Cook Roaster, or you can use a roasting pan or dutch oven and add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water. Cover tightly and roast the pork at 300 degrees F° for several hours (one hour per pound or until fork tender), turning once every hour.

Crispy and Tender Amazing Pulled Pork

When the pulled pork is fork tender, crank up the heat to 400, remove the lid, and roast it, skin side up for 15 minutes. This step makes it nice and crispy! (best part according to my family)

Serving Pulled Pork Sandwiches

When it’s done, let it rest for 15 minutes before shredding. Be sure to pour the juices all over the meat and enjoy!!  Serve on buns with or without your favorite BBQ sauce.

Don’t forget the BLT Potato Salad, Grilled Carrots, and an ice cold copper mug full of Strawberry Basil Moscow Mule to really make this a meal to remember.

AMAZING Pulled Pork

AMAZING Pulled Pork

Yield: serves 6-12
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 5 minutes
This Amazing Pulled Pork recipe is made in a slow cook roaster for a tender, juicy pulled pork sandwich that is always a big hit!

Ingredients

  • 4-7 pound pork butt roast with bone (or pork shoulder)
  • 1 teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3-4 Cloves of Garlic (I use the jarred minced garlic)
  • 1 teaspoon dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 2 tablespoon Salt & Pepper mixture
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 3 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar

Instructions

  1. Rinse roast and pat dry.
  2. Blend all of the ingredients (except roast) in food processor, I used my Magic Bullet.
  3. Rub all over roast. Be sure to get into all creases and folds in the roast.
  4. Spray roasting pan with no-stick spray and place roast in roster (I used my Nesco Roaster ) and added about 1-1/2 cups water and cover with lid. Roast at 300, 4-6 hours (1 hour per pound) – turning every hour.
  5. When it’s fork tender, remove the lid, roast it by cranking the temperature to 400 and let it cook skin side up for another 15-20 mins. This step makes it nice and crispy! (best part according to my family)
  6. Let it sit for about 10 mins. before shredding.
  7. Remove bone (if you have one) and shred meat on a platter with two forks. Be sure to pour the juice from the pan over the pork. – I could NOT keep my family’s fingers OUT at this point!
  8. We served it with buns and BBQ sauce but it was also fantastic right off the platter!

Notes

  • If you don't have a Nesco roaster, you can cook the meat in a dutch oven or roaster in the oven following the same instructions
  • You could do this with a slow cooker, but you would not get the crispy skin that you get by roasting this meat, and in my opinion, that’s what made this SO good.
  • I usually get a 4-5 pound roast and it feeds 7 people.
  • I almost always use a pork butt, and I buy with a bone in for more flavor (and it's usually cheaper).
