Recipe: Pulled Pork October 21, 2014 12:41

This is one of my go to recipes for fall/winter weeknights, it is so great to come home to a warm and hearty kind of meal. We serve it on buns or inside of tortillas and I absolutely love it with Homemade coleslaw on top.


List of Ingredients


  • 2 1/2 pork boneless shoulder roast
  • 1 Tablespoon Jamaican jerk seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup Pepsi (Or Root Beer for a slightly different flavor)
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 8 sandwich buns or flour tortillas

How to Cook

  • 1. If pork comes in netting or is tied, do not remove. Spray 3 1/2 to 6 qt slow cooker with cooking spray. Rub jerk seasoning over pork; sprinkle with thyme. Place pork in cooker. Sprinkle with onion. Pour cola over pork.
  • 2. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8-10 hours.
  • 3. Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board. Remove juices from cooker and reserve. Remove netting or strings from pork. Use 2 forks to pull prok into shreds. Return pork to cooker. Stir in barbecue sauce and 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking liquids. Increase heat setting to high. Cover and cook 30 to 45 minutes or until heated through.
  • 4. Spoon pork onto buns. 

Serve this as leftovers on a store bought cracker crust as a "pizza" or in a baked potato. Yum! This is perfect for any large event you have coming up.


P.S. I have done this in my Pampered Chef Quick cooker (Their version of an instant pot) that I received as a gift form my Mother in Law, Dixie, the Pampered Chef selling queen in our family with very yummy results.
