Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Serves: 8-10
  • 2.5 lbs Boneless Sirloin Tip Roast*
  • 2 T "Dry Rub" Mixture of Sea Salt, Cracked Black Pepper and Minced Garlic
  • 3 T Worcestershire Sauce
  • Half a Bottle (around 6 ounces) of Dark Beer
  • ½ a Large Yellow Onion
  • ⅓ C Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 T Light Brown Sugar
  • ⅓ C Prepared Barbeque Sauce
  • Whole Wheat Rolls
  1. Place the pork in a 6 quart slow cooker. Sprinkle all sides with the dry rub mixture.
  2. Pour the Worchesteshire Sauce and the beer over the meat.
  3. Cover and turn on "low," cooking for 3-5 hours (depending on how your slow cooker performs) or until the meat is tender and shreds easily with a fork.
  4. Turn the slow cooker to "warm," remove the roast and "pull" the meat with two forks.
  5. Remove 1 cup of the cooking liquid from the slow cooker and set aside.
  6. Return the pulled pork to your slow cooker.
  7. Begin preparing the sauce by slicing the half onion into thin slices.
  8. Pour the apple cider vinegar into a saute pan and place it on the cooktop over medium heat. Add the onions and cover with a lid. Allow the onions to "sweat" or steam until they are soft, slightly caramelized, and have absorbed nearly all the vinegar. Watch carefully so as not to burn the onions.
  9. Remove the onions from heat.
  10. In a food processor, add the onions, brown sugar, ⅓ cup of prepared barbeque sauce (I use KC Masterpiece), and some of the reserved cooking liquid. Liquify, adding more of the cooking liquid if needed.
  11. Pour this "semi-homemade" barbeque over your pulled pork and stir.
  12. Serve the barbeque pulled pork on toasted wheat buns or rolls.
* I used two of the roasts in the 4-pack Kirkland Boneless Sirloin Tip Roast package, using a scale to weigh them. To freeze: allow the barbeque pulled pork to cool completely and then transfer to freezer bags or other freezer appropriate containers. Seal well, removing as much air as possible. To reheat, thaw in the fridge and then heat in the oven or on the stove top.
