Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe This super easy recipe has been a family favorite of ours for many years. It is the easiest way to make pork sandwiches and the crock pot does all the work! Just add slaw and some baked beans and you’ve got a BBQ without having to fire up the grill! Here’s our version of this popular recipe. Brown and Sear Pork Roast

Salt and pepper the roast then sear and brown in a pan on medium heat. A rub works nicely with this recipe too!

  1. That looks delicious! I’m very sensitive to garlic, I don’t see my reflection when I look in the mirror. Anyways, you get the gist. That’s the only thing I would change.

  5. it took going to college in nashville to learn about barbeque, but it wasn’t until i saw fried green tomatoes that i understood what was in it. (the real version, not the movie version!) i always thought you had to dig a pit to make it and never thought i’d be inclined to do that but then i “accidentally” made it in the crockpot and lo and behold, it was like “real” barbeque! i love your take on it with the napa slaw and i will have to add that next. the beans i think i will have to skip. they just don’t say barbeque to this northern girl

  6. I was actually planning on posting my pulled pork recipe soon but I didn’t have a slaw or dressing recipe that appealed to me. Now I’ve got a couple! I’ll try these out and hopefully share in my post :)
