Have you heard of the Pioneer Woman? Okay. Of course you have. She’s basically the bees knees and has her own blog, several cookbooks, show on Food Network, a store, cafe and a line of home goods in Walmart. I’d say she’s doing okay for herself.
I have several of her cookbooks and I have loved everything I’ve cooked from them. I also love that her cookbooks have a picture for almost every step. A few weeks ago I set my sights on her Classic Pulled Pork recipe after finding a Boston Butt on sale in the grocery store.
In her version, you cook the boston butt in the oven for like 10 hours. Y’all. I’ve birthed a baby in less time than that. I didn’t have 10 hours so I decided to adapt it for the CrockPot. Here’s a link to the original recipe.
Pioneer Woman Classic Pulled Pork Recipe (adapted for the CrockPot)
Here’s what you need…(contains affiliate links)
- 5lb Boston Butt
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbs chili powder
- 2 ts garlic powder
- 2 ts salt
- 1 ts black pepper (original also calls for cayenne which I left off)
- 1 onion chopped
- 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
- 1/4 cup Ketchup
- Potato Buns
Add the onion…
Add the BBQ sauce and ketchup…(I just used what I had so feel free to use your favorite!)
Add two cups of water and cook on high for 4 hours. Take out of the CrockPot and shred using two forks. It will be sitting in a lot of juice so I like to remove to a serving bowl and then shread. It should be really tender and falling apart. Then add your favorite hamburger buns! I used Potato Buns because they are delicious.
I generally judge how good a recipe is by how much my husband eats of it. He ate 4.5 of these. Need I say more?
Don’t forget to pin it for later! Happy CrockPotting Y’all!
