A confession?

Pulled pork is one of my least favorite sandwiches. Pulled pork is also one of Mike’s least favorite sandwiches.

See, here’s the thing. Everyone likes to go crazy on the sauce for pulled pork sandwiches, which Mike and I think make it too rich. Whenever we’ve ordered pulled pork sandwiches, they are so dripping with sauce that the bun is soaked and you can’t taste anything but the sauce.

That said, you can probably tell by now that if you are a sauce fan, this isn’t the recipe for you.

This, in my opinion, is a just-right pulled pork. I used a Berkshire boar roast from Irvings Farm Fresh to make it and I wanted the flavor of this amazing pork to shine and not be hidden behind cheap sauce.

The two main ingredients? Sweet Baby Ray’s hickory and brown sugar sauce and strong beer. No, you don’t have to go and find this exact beer, but a strong tasting beer is what I recommend.

See? Strong. Beer.

I actually don’t like drinking this beer, so it was perfect to use up.

Even as I write this up, I still cannot believe that I loved these so much. I do NOT like pulled pork. Apparently I have to just make it myself. So, have I sold you on this yet?

Delicious – Magpie approved. Easy. Fast. Sure to be a hit. Did I mention that the leftovers are amazing the next day?

So give these a whirl my loves, it’s the perfect fall dinner! Do you have a favorite pulled pork recipe? What’s in it?

Are you a huge BBQ flavor, dripping with sauce kinda person or like me?

Happy Cooking everyone!

Love you more than chocolate,

Ingredients

  • 1 cup beer
  • 1 400-500 ml bottle ribs sauce
  • 1 tbsp onion soup mix
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar 1-2 TBSP more to add to the sauce later
  • 3-4 lb pork roast butt or shoulder are the best

Instructions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients completely.
  2. Place the pork roast in a crockpot; pour the ingredients over the top.
  3. Cook on low for 8-9 hours.
  4. When the pork pulls apart, remove 1-2 cups of the sauce from the crockpot and place into a saucepan.
  5. Simmer on the stove for 5-10 minutes to reduce it slightly. You can now customize the sweetness to your liking by adding more brown sugar!
  6. While this is simmering, take out the roast and shred with two forks. Place in a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the top and mix in. Here is where you can customize the taste to your liking, add more or less sauce.
  7. Serve on fresh Portuguese buns (these are the best for pulled pork sammies!)

    I’m confused by ” 1 ml bottle ribs sauce 400-500″

    What does this mean? It seems like a typo.

  2. Caitlin Hanks says

    I like to use barqs root beer instead of water in the crock pot and then pull most of the liquid out and reduce it for a sauce.
