Quick and Easy Party Pulled Pork

Recipe from www.theluckypennyblog.com


4 - 5 pound pork roast, shoulder or Boston butt

32 oz (one carton) of veggie broth, chicken broth, or beef broth

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

3-4 garlic cloves minced

1/2 white or brown onion sliced


1 bottle of favorite BBQ sauce

1 - 14.5 oz can of crushed tomatoes

your choice size and flavor Bush's baked beans


To make the pork. I often buy pork when it is on sale and toss it in the freezer. When I'm ready to make pulled pork, I'll take the pork out and put it in the fridge to defrost for a half a day or so. The night before I want to eat the pulled pork, I'll put the partially defrosted pork in the slow cooker. No need to worry about it being fully defrosted. In fact, it could be basically frozen. Add the broth to the  slow cooker. Season top of pork with salt, pepper, and garlic. Set slow cooker on low and cook for 10 - 12 hours (overnight works best). If your pork is not frozen reduce cooking time to about 8 hours.


In the morning, or after the pork is done cooking, carefully remove the pork from the slow cooker and set it in a dish. Remove the fat, it should be pretty easy to find. Discard fat. Shred remaining pork. Drain the slow cooker of liquid and discard liquid. Add the shredded pork back to the slow cooker.


Add 1/2 a brown or white onion sliced. Add your sauce, crushed tomatoes, and Bush's baked beans. Cook on low for at least 2 hours, but you could cook  it for longer if you wish.
