How to Make Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwiches

You’ll start making these pulled pork sandwiches with a prime piece of pork butt shoulder that you’ll baste with Carbonell© Olive Oil and season on all sides before browning in the pan (also basted and drizzled with olive oil).

Once browned, place your pork in the slow cooker. Add in the sauces, onions, and garlic.

After six-or-so hours, once a fork inserted into the meat breaks it apart easily, shred the pork as finely and gently as you can.

  • Baste your meat slightly with the Carbonell© olive oil, and baste a medium-sized pan and/or slow cooker with the olive oil, too.
  • Grind the salt and pepper onto the meat, sprinkling the mustard and chili powder onto it, too, rubbing the seasonings into the meat and oil and place into the pan.
  • Brown the pork on all sides, cooking about ten minutes.
  • Place the pork into the slow cooker; add the onions, garlic, barbecue sauce, and marinade; cook on high.
  • After 6 hours or so, when fork inserted into the pork breaks it apart effortlessly, use two forks to pull at the meat gently to tear it into shreds (if cooked completely, will be effortless. If not, it’ll need extra cooking time)
  • Let cook for an additional fifteen minutes, then place on buns and serve.
