Pulled Porkin’ It

pulled pork

So tender, juicy, sweet with a hint of heat…

Why I love making pulled pork: 1. It is super simple and can easily be thrown in the crock pot 2. We can have it a million different ways. 3. I especially love this for game days. 4. You can also premake a large batch, separate it into ziplock freezer bags, freeze em and pull them out as you please.

Tonight we will be making a pulled pork sandwich topped with coleslaw. Other nights, this is amazing on top of homemade mac n cheese. It’s amazing in a tortilla with melted cheese and sauteed onions…


  • 2ish pounds of pork tenderloin
  • 1/4c chicken stock
  • 1/4c apple cider vinegar
  • 2 c bbq sauce (I love sweet baby rays) A honey or brown sugar kind is best, divided
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  1. Mix together the chicken stock, apple cider vinegar and one cup of bbq sauce.
  2. Mix together your spices.
  3. Place the pork into your crock pot and rub the meat with the seasoning mix.
  4.  Make slits across the pork, about halfway through to allow the sauces to penetrate.
  5. Add the sauce.
  6. Set to High for about 5 hours.
  7. Shred the meat and place back into the crockpot.
  8. Stir in the remaining bbq sauce and let the meat sit on a low or warm setting for 20 minutes so it can take in the flavors.

Take a bite!
