Pioneer Woman Classic Pulled Pork – Adapted for the Crock Pot

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. Today I’m sharing her Classic Pulled Pork Recipe that I have adapted for the Crockpot!

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.

Here’s what you need…(contains affiliate links)

Mix the spices together and rub onto Boston Butt and place inside Crock Pot (this is the one I have). Don’t forget the liner to make the clean-up faster.

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. {Note: Cooking time will vary depending on the size of you Boston Butt and how much fat it has. Check it periodically to make sure it isn’t over cooked!}

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!
