During my trip to the US as a teenager, I was introduced to BBQ (shredded pork with BBQ sauce). Sandwich topped with tender meat and coleslaw would make anyone ask for seconds. While I was still in college, my American mom shared her recipe with me. Because it was easy and quick, it became one of my favorites.

Place raw pork meat in the slow cooker and cover it with BBQ sauce. Our favorite is Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce. Let it cook on low for about 8 hours.

Remove pork, place it on the cutting board and let it cool for about 30 minutes. Empty the liquid from the slow cooker and wash the dish thoroughly.

Once the meat cools off, use your hands to separate fat from the meat. As I shred the meat, I place it back in the slow cooker.

Cover the shredded meat with the BBQ sauce and cook on low for about an hour. Voila, it is ready to serve. We love to eat BBQ with beans and corn.


  1. I love that!!!!! I shred it while its hot using forks! hahahahhaa!!!!

    What I love even more about that... is the piece of pork (We use pork butt) is like 10 dollars, but it provides more than enough left overs forever! haha!

  2. I have an award for you over at my blog!!!!

  3. That is EXACTLY how I make pulled pork - right down to the yummy Sweet Baby Rays!
