It is officially summer here in Texas. And summer means BBQ! Except, I live in an apartment now with no balcony/patio… so my ability to BBQ is limited to the BBQ pits by the community pool. I can’t get down there very often so I have to come up with ways to have my BBQ without having to leave my apartment.

My crockpot comes to my rescue every time! This recipe is so easy and so so so delicious. I originally made it with a 3 lb bone in pork roast and by the time it was done it was so good I was kicking myself for not making a bigger roast! So the recipe here reflects that :).

I served this pulled pork with a delicious homemade Balsamic (Paleo) BBQ Sauce and it was such a delicious combination I could (and did…) eat it for breakfast! ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t forget to serve it up with some fresh cornbread!

  • salt & pepper


  1. Placed the sliced onions in the bottom of the crockpot.
  2. Place the roast on top on the onions
  3. Put the garlic, salt, and pepper on top.
  4. Pour broth over roast.
  5. Cook on high for 6-8 hours, or until it's falling apart and easy to shred. Enjoy!
  6. **If you are freezing this recipe, just dump all the ingredients into the freezer bag and freeze. Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge, then just dump in the crockpot and cook ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you so much for sharing this at Wednesday Extravaganza – can’t wait to see what you share next week ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Can you share the recipe for the homemade balsamic BBQ sauce please? Thanks!


  7. If I make this much, I’m going to have BUNCHES left over. Will it freeze well after being cooked? If so, after I thaw it out, how would I warm it? (Can it be put back in crockpot, or should I simply put it in a pan on the stove?)
    Thank you!

    • I have seen shredded pork frozen and used in other recipes. I think it might heat better in a pan or skillet than in the slow cooker (might be a bit too tough if in a slow cooker for too long).

  8. Hi thanks for sharing this awesome and yummy recipe. Cant wait to try’em. Im actually fixing to go to grocery to buy some of the freezer meals. also Im wondering what size of your slow cooker your using. Thanks

    I used to be in the same boat and didn’t have the room or time to properly BBQ a pulled pork. Now that I can use my smoker and BBQ pit I don’t have a problem. Anyway, I used to use a recipe very similar to this to get my pork fix, however, It is not really pulled pork without that smoky flavor. to get around this I would add a couple of dashes of liquid smoke to the pot. It isn’t perfect but it is about as good as crock pot pulled pork can get!!!
