Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Are you like me and your kids are always wanting to help make dinner? My kids love to cook and I love to find easy recipes they can do on their own without much help. This is one of those recipes, it’s so easy they can make it themselves. My 5 year-old farm boy made this one pretty much by himself, minimal help required from me until the meat needed to be shredded. If it’s weren’t for a riveting game of LEGO I’m sure he would have done the whole thing. I hope you enjoy this one!


Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


1 Pork Roast 3-4 lbs

2 Tbsp Pork Rub (optional)

1 bottle BBQ sauce

3 Cloves garlic (minced)

2 cups water


Cover roast with dry Pork rub if desired. (we really like to use a rub with a bit of a smoke taste to it) Place roast in the slow cooker. Add minced garlic, BBQ sauce, & water.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Shred pork with 2 forks and load pulled pork onto buns and serve.

This is a great recipe if you have a busy day and want dinner ready when you get home. I use this recipe when I have a lot of hungry people to feed, it’s so easy! You really get bonus points if you have enough time to make homemade buns as well!
