Slow Cooker Barbecued Pork

Yesterday I made one of my absolute favorite slow cooker recipes. The original recipe is for barbecued beef and I have made it many times with a brisket and its delicious. Last night, I decided to try it as a pulled pork instead. It was perfect. It may even be better than with the brisket! This is a great go to recipe for football parties or casual entertaining. I consider the barbecue recipe attached my signature barbecue sauce. I use it for any recipe that calls for barbecue sauce. Its a very sweet Carolina style sauce and the exact recipe my family used.

Barbecued Beef Source:

  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons prepared Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (4 pound) boneless chuck roast (I used a pork roast)
In a large bowl, combine ketchup, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, Dijon-style mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and liquid smoke. Stir in salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  1. Place chuck roast in a slow cooker. Pour ketchup mixture over chuck roast. Cover, and cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours.
  2. Remove chuck roast from slow cooker, shred with a fork, and return to the slow cooker. Stir meat to evenly coat with sauce. Continue cooking approximately 1 hour.
