Recipe: Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork and Simple Slaw

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork
Pork Butt Shoulder (For reference, I'd say 2.5lbs would make 4-5 sandwiches)
Root Beer (Buy name brand- the cheap stuff is too sweet.  I might have also bought the glass bottles because I'm a sucker for nostalgia.)
Salt and Pepper
Your favorite BBQ Sauce (I like vinegary BBQ sauce...I'm definitely NOT a ketchup based sauce girl. I got mine from a restaurant in Georgia.)

1. Cover your pork butt with a good layer of salt and pepper.  I think I also threw some garlic salt.
2. Put your pork butt in the crock pot on HIGH and set the timer for 8 hours.
3. Pour root beer into crock pot until it's about 1/2 way up the pork.
4. Cover...and wait. I did flip my pork over about half way through.
5. At the end of the 8 hours, shred up the pork with two forks and cover with your favorite sauce.

Simple Slaw
Whole mess of thinly shredded cabbage
a shake of salt and a shake of pepper
1 tsp celery seed
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup cider vinegar

Put it all in a jar and shake it up.  I make this several hours ahead of time so it has time to sit.

Now, I wouldn't eat a whole pile of this on it's own as it's not your typical sweet mayo-ish slaw.  I like mine very vinegary and ON my BBQ sandwich.  I want it drippin' down my arms!


  1. Oh em gee!! My mouth is watering. I like things really vinegary too. Which bbq sauce do you buy? I have to try!!!
