Memphis-Style Pulled Pork


Nothing welcomes warm weather like a delicious barbecue.  Unfortunately, I've yet to master our grill so this is my standby slow-cooker recipe for a very delicious Memphis Style Pulled Pork.

I originally clipped this recipe out of a newspaper and have adjusted it to my liking.  It is so easy and produces a very sweet and moist barbecue.  

Serves 6

1 medium onion
6 fresh garlic cloves
2 (14 oz.) can low sodium beef or chicken stock
4 cups (32 oz) Sticky Fingers Memphis Style Barbecue Sauce, divided
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 tsp pepper
1 boneless Boston Butt Pork Roast 

1.  Remove ends from onion and peel.  Slice thickly and place in slow cooker with peeled garlic cloves.  Stir in broth, 3 cups barbecue sauce, sugar, vinegar and pepper.  Add pork roast gently.  Cover and cook for 6-8 hours.  About halfway through cooking, I like to flip the roast to make sure both sides remain moist.  (Be sure to cook this roast a minimum of 6 hours to assure deliciously moist barbecue!)

2.  Remove pork from slow cooker and let it sit a few minutes.  Shred with a fork and remove fatty parts of the roast.  Serve on top of a toasted bun and accompany with remaining barbecue sauce.

This barbecue also pairs perfectly with one of my favorites, broccoli slaw!

  2. Good morning from Tokyo!

    As a gal who used to live in Memphis, I cannot tell you how many times Rendezvous came up as a potential dinner suggestion. There's something just very special about Memphis style bbq.

    Hopefully in our next move we'll have a big enough balcony~or a yard~so we can get back to grilling. Thanks for sharing!

    Warmly,

    Elizabeth

  3. Carol- Yes, Sticky Fingers is brand sold here in GA but certainly any barbecue sauce would work in this recipe if that brand is not in your area.

    OFH-I cook the barbecue on low setting (6-8 hours)

    Elizabeth-Yes, there's no comparison to barbecue on the grill but this slow cooker recipe is pretty good too! Give my love to Tokyo :)
