The Absolute Best Pulled Pork Recipe

I can take no credit for what I'm about to share with you- other than the fact that I'm married to the creator of this delicious recipe. Pulled pork is a regular menu item in our house and we've made it various ways but Jared has come up with THE winning recipe for it. It seriously is so good- and Cincinnati people? I swear he might have unlocked some secrets of Skyline Chili's recipe because it's got a similar taste, I kid you not.

So don't wait, save this, write it down, pin-it - whatever you need to do, don't lose this recipe! It might look like a long list of ingredients but most of them are spices/seasonings you'll already have.

Ingredients
2-3 lb pork shoulder (or tenderloin works too- we buy what's on sale!)
1 Tbsp. molasses
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp(ish) season salt
+ a dash of garlic salt
+ a dash or two of BBQ rub if you have a favorite

Coat all sides of the meat with a tablespoon or so of molasses. Mix allllllll those spices together and cover the pork. Add 1/2 cup water in the bottom of your crockpot, put the meat in and crockpot that sucker on high for 4 hours and ENJOY IT! It's just as good the next day too, if not better.

And as always, keep it classy and use leftover paper plates ;)

  3. I just made pulled pork on Tuesday! I love that as it gets warmer, the crockpot doesn't heat up the house like the oven. For the first time, we tried just pork shoulder and a can of root beer in the crock pot, then added bbq sauce after shredding. But my husband isn't a huge fan of the sauce so I want to try this recipe soon!

  16. oh my goodness. I love me some pulled pork especially when it has been cooking in the crockpot all day and smells my house up really nice. haha I'm going to have to try your seasoning though. We just put brown sugar, cinnamon, and pork rub then add onion, garlic, and Dr. pepper with some chicken broth.
