Pulled Pork Sammiches

I'm a vegetarian, but I'll taste meat if we're in a restaurant to see if I can replicate it or when I cook it at home to make sure it's perfect. I don't like the taste after 11 years of not's, um, grissly. 

That said, this is the most delicious pork I have ever had. And it's so easy!

1 T butter
1 can French onion soup
1 C ketchup
1/4 C brown sugar
2 T garlic
1 pork shoulder or rump roast (I like the rump roast; it's more tender)
Hamburger buns (I use the homemade ones I keep in my freezer; they're worth the time to make)

Melt the butter in a heavy pan (I use a cast iron). Salt and pepper and then brown every side of the pork.

Combine the soup, ketchup, sugar, and garlic in a crockpot. Add the pork on top. Cook on low for eight to nine hours or high for four to six hours.

Remove the pork from the crockpot and let sit on a cutting board for 10 minutes. Using two forks, shred the pork. Return to the crockpot and mix with the juices and sauce.

Divide the pork between the buns.


  1. Remembered this from FB ... making it right now :) I use a dutch oven instead of a crockpot, but it already smells DElish!

  2. Seriously!? I Google "pulled pork" and Gini Dietrich pops up?

    Crazy. :-)

    1. LOL! Really?? It's that Global Domination thing...I have to take over Google first.
