Pulled Pork

My husband and I had the pleasure of living in Kentucky for a few years. There are so many foods I never ever would have thought would be a part of my regular diet. And this is one of them. I LOVE it.
The proper way to have a pulled pork sandwich is with coleslaw on top. It's delicious.
This recipe was so easy, just in the slow cooker. It was my first attempt at making my own, and it turned out well=)

2 cups water
1 chicken bullion cube
1 cup BBQ sauce or Ketchup
3-4 pound pork roast, bone in

1 small can tomato paste
3 Tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon hot sauce

Place pork roast, BBQ sauce or ketchup, 2 cups water and one bullion cube into crock pot and set on high for 6-8 hours. After 6-8 hours drain off liquid and save 1 cup. Mix tomato paste, worcestershire sauce, onion and garlic powder, brown sugar and hot sauce into reserved liquid. Pour over pork and using a couple spoons break apart the pork and stir the sauce into it. Leave on high for 30 minutes before serving.


  1. YEA KENTUCKY!!! I love it as well!

  2. I've lived in KY all my days until two years ago. I've seen this all my life, but never tried it. I'm going to brave up and make yours.
    I did try coleslaw on sloppy joe's. It's awesome.
    I've even seen them eat it on chili dogs :o
