Ever since I learned how to make pulled pork in the crock pot, it has been a regular around our house. It’s SUPER easy, freezes beautifully, and makes a lot of servings. Since we used rolls to turn the last batch into pulled pork sandwiches, it was enough to feed 10+ people! A butcher will tell you to plan for 1/2 pound per person but I find that to be pretty generous. I guess it just depends on the appetites of those you are feeding.
This crock pot pulled pork recipe is hard to screw up. Simply plop the chunk of meat in the crock pot with some broth or water, wait, stir it up with some BBQ sauce and you’re done!
To be more specific, buy a pork butt roast from the store. Mine was about 2.5 pounds.
Add 1 cup of water and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until meat easily shreds apart.
Drain the water out of the crock pot.
Add about half a bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce.
My favorite way to eat it is as a sandwich. I use our homemade wheat roll recipe. To make this a slow cooker freezer meal, simply place the pork and broth into a freezer bag and seal. Place the BBQ sauce in a separate freezer bag.
Make sure to allow 24-48 hours for the pork to thaw in the refrigerator before you want to cook it. This is a great recipe to stock up on when pork goes on sale! Such an easy freezer meal!
