Week 48: Crockpot Pulled Pork

This was a Sunday supper for us. Sunday suppers are usually something that need to cook all day, and it has just been too hot lately to have the oven on for the entire day. So, I searched for a crockpot recipe and ended up with this.

Taken from Savorysusie at Tasty Kitchen
Prep time: Less than 5 minutes + 10 minutes later
Cook time: 8 - 10 hours + 1 hour later

1 large onion, sliced
3 lb Boneless Pork Shoulder Roast
2 C (16 oz) ginger ale
16 oz BBQ sauce
1 package sandwich buns (8 count)

Place half of the onion in the crock pot. Put the meat on top of the onion layer. Layer the other half of onion on top of the meat. Pour ginger ale on top.

Cook 8-10 hours on low.

Remove meat from pot. Discard liquid and onions. On a plate, pull the pork for the sandwiches. Place the pork back into the pot and cover it with the BBQ sauce.

Let it cook on low for another 30 minutes to 1 hour to let the BBQ sauce heat.

Serve on buns.

My Notes:
This was great - officially part of our regular rotation.


  1. Did you hear my stomach growling over there .. P90X is going to hate me for making that .. SIGH lolol

  2. I ate three sandwiches. Yep...three and I want to go back for more. So basically I am here to tell you I tried this recipe and it is delicious. Perfect meal for a Sunday. I made one mistake. I forgot to remove the onions. It tasted fine with them though. Well, time for me to roll off the couch and to bed. I wonder where I can rent a crane? ;o)

  3. I have used coke or sprite when making my pulled pork, but never ginger ale. I'll remember that. I also want to try it with onion now too. Yum!
