Pulled Pork

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend - we certainly did!  Since Memorial Day is traditionally a grilling/BBQ holiday, we decided to try our hand at some pulled pork.  I would have liked to have smoked our butt, but our grill is just a $50 grill from Home Depot (absolutely not fancy, but it works).  I am sure we could rig it to make it into a smoker somehow, but we just decided to give Williams-Sonoma's Pulled Pork Starter a try.  It turned out great!  

We seared the pork in our dutch oven and then used the slow cooker setting on the oven.  We let it slow cook for about 7-8 hours.  (You can also use your crock-pot)  It was super easy!  

The sauce was sweet and smoky.  It had a little kick from some red pepper flakes in the starter.  We topped our sandwiches with some extra Sweet Baby Ray's sauce and pickles.  

This was our first pork butt, but I'm sure it won't be our last.  I've already found a couple of other recipes I want to try.

  1. I love pulled pork and I don't care whether it's long smoked, slow cooked in the oven, boiled, or done in a crockpot either! It's ALL good!

    Have a great week!

  2. The sandwich looks delicious and I'm like Mary, it's hard to hook up a pork butt wrong.

  3. We didn't get to grill yesterday. Hubby ended up working all day long.

    But, my brother did BBQ steaks Sunday evening and they were fantastic.

  4. I made my first pulled pork in a crock pot, too. Good looking sandwich, Steph!

  5. That's a great looking sandwich Stephanie! I had just a good Memorial Day that I'm having to eat salads the rest of the week. :-)

  6. we looooved pulled pork at our house! you have to try it putting a tenderloin in the crock pot, 1 bottle/can of rootbeer, cook on low for 4-6 hours. so amazing!! then you can have super moist pork or shred it up & add BBQ sauce for sandwiches.

  7. I have a pork tenderloin in the freezer - I'll try this next week.
