Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Servings: 6 Prep 10 mins Chill At least 1 hr Cook 2 mins Slow Cook 6 hrs on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW


  • 2 1/2 tablespoons dark-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 boneless pork butt or shoulder (about 2-1/2 pounds), trimmed
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 6 hamburger buns

Make It

1. In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon of the sugar, the paprika, chili powder, cumin and pepper; set aside.

2. Lay pork on work surface and sprinkle on all sides with spice rub; rub well into meat. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.

3. Unwrap pork and place in slow cooker with chicken broth. Cover and cook on HIGH for 6 hours or LOW for 8 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker and cut into large chunks; let stand for 20 minutes or until cool enough to handle.

4. While pork is cooling, pour cooking liquid into a fat separator. Pour de-fatted liquid into small saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat. Whisk in vinegar, ketchup and remaining 1-1/2 tablespoons brown sugar. Cook until sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes; set aside.

5. Using forks or your hands, pull meat into shreds, discarding excess fat, and place in bowl. Stir in sauce and put 1/2 cup meat on each bun. Serve immediately.
