This Crockpot pulled pork is a family favorite! You know you are going to have a family full of happy eaters with this recipe! I will usually place it on a Hawaiian bun with our family’s favorite BBQ sauce (this is one my uncle chuck makes and sells and we are obsessed with it! Every time we go home to MN we pick up some more!) or sometimes I will place it one a bed of white rice, either way it is delicious!
Crockpot Pulled Pork
- 2.5 pounds pork shoulder cut in half
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tbsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 can A&W root beer
- 1 BBQ sauce for on top
- Mix together the chili powder, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, pepper and salt. Rub it all over the meat. **Consider doing the rub the night before to really enhance the flavors of the meat, but if you can't do that, adding the rub right before putting in the crockpot works too!
- After placing the pork in crockpot, next add root beer to the crock pot.
- Let it cook on low for 7-8 hours. Once it starts to break apart, you'll know it's done!
