Crockpot BBQ Pork Sandwiches

Crockpot BBQ pork sandwiches; dinner doesn’t get any easier than this.  Perfect for those sweltering hot summer days when you don’t want to turn the oven on, or go outside to bbq.  And the best thing about this dish is that everyone in my family will eat it.

Simply mix all your ingredients together in a small bowl.

Like a little smoke flavor, just add it in with all the other ingredients.

OR you could take the really, really, really easy way out and use your favorite BBQ sauce.  Just be sure to use enough to cover the pork.

Top the pork with the BBQ sauce and let the crockpot do the rest.

About 1 hour before you are ready to serve the pork, place the tenderloin on a cutting board and shred the pork with two forks.  Put back into crockpot and give the pork a good stir with the bbq sauce, adding a little more if needed.  Put the heat to warm setting. 

Come and get it.  Dinner is ready!

  3. I made the pulled pork sandwiches yesterday. My husband couldn’t get enough. I loved it. It is such a tasty and easy dish to make. The kind of meal we love! Thank you for sharing. NOTE: I used the receipe exactly as you have it and didn’t use a bottled bbq sauce. I might try the bottled if I am really pressed for time, but this was so easy to make anyway.

    I could eat that sandwich and then stuff some more bbq in a baked potato, top it with cheese & sour cream and green onions and I’d be in heaven.

    I’d also weigh 30 pounds more than I do today. Thanks for a great photo.
