Quick Crock Pot Pulled Pork Recipe

This best ever pulled pork is perfectly seasoned during cooking with a packet of dry onion soup mix. Once cooked and shredded, add your favorite bottled BBQ sauce, stir and serve. That’s it. Simple as can be.

The secret to amazing pulled pork is in the cut of meat that you use. Always go with a pork cut that has a fat cap. Believe me, fat is flavor. A couple options are pork loin roasts or pork shoulder roasts. While cooking, the fat should be pointed upwards, and as it slowly cooks, the fat will drip down through the meat resulting in a moist texture.

How to Make Slow Cooker Pulled Pork:

Instructions:

  1. Add pork loin roast to crock pot insert; sprinkle over dry onion soup mix.
  2. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 8-10 hours or until it pulls apart easily with 2 forks.
  3. Remove from insert, shred, and return to the insert with the cooking liquids.
  4. Add your favorite bottled BBQ sauce and stir.

Notes About Quick Crock Pot Pulled Pork:

  • I use a pork loin roast for this crock pot pulled pork. Try to find a cut of meat that has a layer of fat on top. Put it in the crock pot with the fat on top so that it renders out as it cooks for a moist pulled pork.
  • If your cut of pork doesn’t have fat, add a 1/2 cup water to the pork before you add the dry onion soup mix.
  • This is a saucy pulled pork recipe. Try using a Crock Pot Liner for easy cleanup.
  • Do not overcook the pork! Cook until it comes apart easily with two forks.
  • Add as much or as little bottled barbecue sauce as you like. If you like it saucy, add more. If you prefer more pork flavor, add less. It’s your preference.
