Generally, when I make pulled pork in the crockpot, it’s just pork and whatever barbecue sauce happens to be on sale. It’s an easy dinner for a busy night and we’ve always enjoyed it.
A lot of my friends have been raving about this recipe for more than a year. It didn’t seem that much different from what I was already doing, so I never put in the extra effort to try it – until this week. I didn’t tell Mark I’d done anything different, but he knew it at first bite. His immediate reaction was, “This is so good!” Quite a compliment since I usually have to ask him point-blank about things before getting an opinion.
This is now our go-to recipe!
Crystal’s Pulled Pork
(passed along from my friend Crystal… thank you!)
3-4 lb. pork roast
3 T. Bam seasoning
1 large onion, cut in half and sliced
1 bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce
Rub pork with Bam seasoning.
Place half the onion in the bottom of the crockpot. Place pork on top and then cover with remaining onions. Pour 3/4 of the bottle of sauce over the meat and onions. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Remove meat, shred and return to crockpot. Stir in remaining sauce. Cook on low for an additional half hour, or until heated through.
