I have always liked a good BBQ pulled pork sandwich, but it wasn’t until recently that I discovered what takes pulled pork sandwiches to a new level: COLESLAW!
Whenever we have a huge family gathering, it seems that we always serve some type of BBQ pulled pork. It is simple to make, it can make enough to feed a small army, in a family dinner and it’s always a hit.
How have I never tried this before?! It’s the perfect combination!
I don’t think that I can ever go back to just a plain BBQ pulled pork sandwich ever again . . .
Best part about this recipe? It’s so easy to make.
How to make BBQ pulled pork in the slow cooker:
Even without the coleslaw, this recipe is easy and delicious.
It literally takes 5 minutes to prep and requires simple ingredients. The main question people ask is what kind of cut to use for the pork- you can use a boneless pork shoulder or pork butt.
From there, just follow these easy steps:
- In a small bowl, mix together seasonings and rub on the outside of the pork shoulder roast. Place pork roast in slow cooker.
- Pour beef broth or chicken broth around the bottom of the slow cooker (don’t pour it directly on the roast or it will rinse off all the seasonings).
- Cook on low heat for 8-10 hours (or high heat for 5-6, but I feel like the pork is more tender if you cook it on low for long time).
- Shred the tender pork meat with 2 forks or with meat claws and pour in a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce. Mix all together and serve on a bun with coleslaw.
