Recipe: Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

My boyfriend's dad gave me this recipe last week and we tried it for dinner last night and it did not disappoint. In fact, it tasted really great so I thought I'd share it with my readers.

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup(s) ketchup
  • 1/3 cup(s) cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup(s) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup(s) tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoon(s) sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoon(s) yellow mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground black pepper
  • 4 pound(s) boneless pork shoulder blade roast (fresh pork butt), cut into 4 pieces
  • Sandwich buns

  1. In 4 1/2- to 6-quart slow-cooker pot, stir onion, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, tomato paste, paprika, Worcestershire, mustard, salt, and pepper until combined. Add pork to sauce mixture and turn to coat well with sauce.
  2. Cover slow cooker with lid and cook pork mixture on low setting as manufacturer directs, 8 to 10 hours or until pork is very tender.
  3. With tongs, transfer pork to large bowl. Turn setting on slow cooker to high; cover and heat sauce to boiling to thicken and reduce slightly.
  4. While sauce boils, with 2 forks, pull pork into shreds. Return shredded pork to slow cooker and toss with sauce to combine. Cover slow cooker and heat through on high setting if necessary.
  5. Spoon pork mixture onto buns and serve.


  1. I really want to make this. My kid's step-mom makes pulled-pork all of the time, so I've been staying away from it to prevent the inevitable comparisons. But... I think it's time to make some kick-a** pulled pork. So... my only question is: where the heck do I get pork butt? I've never seen it in the A&P.
