Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches

We hosted a Super Bowl party yesterday. It was fun watching the game with good friends and good food. Josh made Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches and they were a hit. The best part-we didn’t even have to fuss with the recipe. The slow cooker did all of the work.

We made the pulled pork the night before the party and reheated it when our guests were about to arrive. We served the pulled pork on little sandwich buns. Everyone loved them! If you are looking for an easy party food or an easy weeknight meal, try Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches. This is a great recipe to have in your collection.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Yield: Serves 25

Cook Time: 8 hours in the crockpot


2 medium onions, chopped
1 cup ketchup
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup tomato paste
4 tablespoons paprika
1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
4 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons black pepper
5 pounds pork butt, cut into 2 pieces
Rolls or buns


1. Combine all of the ingredients except the pork butt and the buns in a large slow cooker. Stir together with a spoon until well combined.  Add the 2 pieces of pork and place the lid on the slow cooker. Cook for 8 hours on low or until pork is tender and easily pulls apart from the bone.

2. Take two forks and shred the pork. Place the pork back into the slow cooker with the remaining sauce. Stir well and serve on rolls or buns.

*Note-this recipe makes a lot. Feel free to cut the recipe in half or freeze the leftovers.

    I’ve never had pulled pork before, and now that I don’t eat meat I guess I never will. I still like this post though, because now I know what’s in pulled pork, whereas before I’d only heard of it!

    I love food like this for football games…adds more of a “meal” feel to it, instead of just dips and finger foods.

    This recipe sounds perfect!

    Last night during super bowl, my husband decided to have the guys over this Friday for a card game. I woke up this morning thinking what am I going to feed these guys. Thank you! I am going to serve your pork sandwiches. Do you have any other ideas for a girl that normally serves tea sandwiches?! Have a golden day! xo

      We served homemade fries and sweet potato fries with the sandwiches. We also had chips/salsa and guacamole.

    looks great! i dice up red peppers and shred carrots to put in mine to sneak in some extra veggies. they pretty much just disappear into the sauce!

    Pulled pork is among my favorite things to make for the big game! Usually we do ours on the smoker, but the slow cooker is a great way to do it during the week, or when you do not want to be tied to a smoker all day. Looks really tasty!

  28. Tracy — February 7, 2011 @ 10:09 am

    Slow cooker pulled pork is the sole reason I could never be a vegetarian. This looks amazing!
