Balsamic Pulled Pork Sammy

I love barbeque.  Do you love barbeque?  I’ve never met a pulled pork bbq sammy I didn’t like.  In my freezer, I had a 2.5 lb pork shoulder to use up, so I thawed it out and decided to throw it in my Crock Pot before I left for work.

Instead of a typical barbeque sauce, I opted for something similar to the Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin I made last fall.  I loved the sweet, tangy flavor of that tenderloin, so I wanted to see how it would work in the Crock Pot.  However, I will say that I think this would have been much better with a regular chuck roast, so that is what I will include in the recipe ingredients.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2-3 lb chuck roast
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • NOT PICTURED:  Buns  🙂

Place roast in slow cooker, then combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.

After a long day’s work, I arrived home to a deliciously sweet aroma.  However, the pork that I shredded was pretty dry, and the sauce didn’t really seem to do its magic.  However, I tasted a bite and it was decently flavorful from the sauce.  I decided to add some barbeque sauce from a bottle we had in the refrigerator just to give it a little more flavor and moisture.

This recipe only earns 3/5 herbs for convenience and taste, but I honestly think if this were done with a chuck roast it would be a lot more moist.  I still enjoyed it alongside a spinach salad, and I even ate the leftovers for lunch the next day.  Any tips for cooking pork shoulders or pork roasts in the slow cooker and keeping them moist?

  1. I love the idea for the plastic liner in your crock pot. Whenever I use my crockpot, stuff always sticks to it, and stains the porcelain. So annoying. Next time, I’m going to try the liner. 🙂
