Easy BBQ Pulled Pork

from: Jenn@eatcakefordinner

1 1/2 Lbs. boneless country style ribs

1 can beef broth

favorite barbeque sauce

 (we like to mix Sweet Baby Rays and Famous Daves)


1 Tbl. brown sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1/4 tsp. dry mustard

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. lemon pepper

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. smoked paprika


Trim pork of any excess fat.  Combine all rub ingredients and rub over every last inch of the pork.  Refrigerate for at least several hours or overnight.  Add pork to a large dutch oven and add the can of beef broth.  Bring up to a simmer, cover, and transfer to a preheated 225 degree oven.  Cook for 1 1/2 hours.  Increase temperature to 300 degrees and cook another 45 minutes - 1 hour or until pork easily pulls apart with a fork.  Transfer pork to a mixing bowl and shred, adding some of the cooking liquid to help it stay juicy.  Stir in barbeque sauce, however much you like.  (We add about 3 Tbl. of the cooking liquid and 1/2 cup of barbeque sauce).  Drain remaining cooking liquid and add the pork back to the pot and keep warm or serve right away on toasted hamburger buns.  Serves: 4-5 people.  

You could use a different cut of pork if you like.  A pork shoulder makes great pulled pork, and since those usually come in large sizes, it would work great for a crowd.  It will take a lot longer to cook (8-10 hours in a slow cooker or a few hours less in the oven), so just make sure to adjust your cooking time accordingly.
