Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwich Recipe

Here we are and it is Memorial Day weekend already and  I bet you are looking for an easy pulled pork sandwich recipe to make. Pulled pork sandwiches is a favorite family recipe in my family.

If you love the taste of pulled pork but hate the time it takes to make on the grill this Easy Crock Pot Recipe for Pulled Pork Sandwiches is for you.

With this easy crock pot recipe all you need to do is toss all the ingredients in the crock pot and four hours later you have a crock pot full of delicious pulled pork and you didn’t even have to break a sweat once.

Not everyone has the time or inclination to pull out the barbeque grill and grill up a pork roast to make pulled pork sandwiches.

Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I love smoking a big pork roast and making pulled pork sandwiches but sometimes I like to have a pulled pork sandwich during the week.

Cooking a pork roast on the grill takes hours.  Plus you have to go in and out of the house to keep an eye on the grill and the roast during cooking time. Sometimes I just don’t feel like messing with the grill for hours.

The best part is that this pulled pork recipe only has 5 ingredients.

  1. Boneless Pork Riblets
  2. Barbecue sauce
  3. Brown Sugar
  4. Dry Mustard
  5. Garlic Powder

You can find the recipe in Ziplist format at the bottom of this post.

Assemble your ingredients and turn the crock pot to the high setting.

Pour half of the bottle of barbeque sauce into the bottom of the crock pot. Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce happens to be my favorite bbq sauce but you can use whatever brand you want.

Put all the pork riblets into the crock pot on top of the barbeque sauce. By the way you can use boneless chicken breasts instead of pork to make barbecue chicken sandwiches instead.

Add the bbq sauce and seasonings to the crock pot

Pour the remaining bbq sauce over the riblets. Add about a tablespoon of water to the empty bottle and shake it up to catch the last bit of bbq sauce and pour that into the crock pot also. Add the garlic powder and dry mustard. If you are out of dry mustard feel free to add a squirt of yellow mustard to the crock pot. I do it all the time.

I added brown sugar to this recipe after it was done because I totally forgot to add it during the cooking time. If you don’t like a sweet bbq flavor to your pulled pork you can omit the brown sugar completely. Taste the sauce after it has been cooking for about an hour. The brown sugar mellows out the tangy flavor and really give the bbq sauce a rich flavor that I love.

How to make Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches


 Mix everything together so the sauce covers the pork riblets. Put the lid on and cook for 4 hours. Stir once every hour.

After four hours of cooking in the crock pot the pork riblets will be fork tender and ready to pull. You can use a ladle or large spoon to dip out the grease that has settled on top of the barbecue sauce.

To pull the pork use a fork to mash the riblets against the side of the crock pot. The pork will fall apart because it is so tender. Leave some large chunks. Serve on a bun with homemade coleslaw and a pasta salad.

    Hi there, I was wondering if I can do this recipe with a pork roast instead of the riblets? That is what i happen to have on hand at the moment!

  5. Lori Who Needs A Cape? says:

    Thanks for bringing them to Super Sunday – can’t wait to see what you bring us next week!

  8. Brenda Lee says:

    This is the first time that I’ve made pulled pork in the slow cooker..and I will make again..:0)

  9. This looks so good and easy! We are camping in 3 weeks and I think this will be one of our meals. Question though – are pork riblets the same as boneless country pork strips. I have never seen anything in the grocery store labeled pork riblets.

  10. I’ve done it with a pork shoulder cut in half, but never with boneless ribs – thanks for the suggestion! Now I’m hungry :)

  11. cynthia says:

    I’d kike to make this while at work. Can it cook all day on low?

    • Cynthia I have never cooked it on low so I am not sure how long it would take. But if you have cooked in your crockpot something like boneless chicken breasts or pork chops and they turned out fine then these will also. As long as the riblets are not too small they should cook fine and not dry out.

  12. This looks great! I have all those ingredients except for the boneless pork ribs.. I was wondering if boneless pork chops could work..

  13. This looks good, and so easy. I love the crockpot meals.

  14. This looks amazing! I was wondering if this would work with chicken instead?

  15. Did I miss something!? I’m a recipe girl & there aren’t any amounts for this:) help!

  16. Never mind I see it now:)

  17. What size bottle of baby ray’s did you use?
    I made just 1 lb of this last week for my husband and I …it was really good! Now we’re planning to make the full version for a party. How many servings did you make from this recipe?
    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Cheryl

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe! I used the regular size bottle of Baby Ray’s not the extra big bottle. This recipe fed my family of 6 (5 adults, 1 child) and we had plenty of leftovers

  18. Love your site! Making crock pot Pulled Pork for the first time (I’m 60 yrs old ) HA! My Daughter AND my Mother both make amazing pulled pork… But wanted more info. Thanks for the great recipe, and images. You have been a big help this morning. Serving 14 PP tonight, don’t want to mess it up :)

  19. Would pork tenderloin or bone in ribs work?i can not find boneless ribs anywhere!

    Thanks a lot! :)

  20. This is the best pulled pork recipe I’ve ever made. It is simply to die for. Sweet, moist and really saucy, just the way we love it! Thanks so much for sharing!

  21. I couldn’t find boneless riblets, the butcher told me to use pork butt. Will this work?

    • Shay

      Boneless pork chops will work also. I have not made this recipe with a pork butt. It would work also but you may need to double the ingredients for the bbq sauce so it covers the pork butt in the crock pot.

  22. I love this! Taste great and everyone else I made it for loved it too!

  23. I dont have a crock pot but I do have a pressure cooker,will that work? Has anyone tried? And also how long should I cook it and would that change the whole recipe? Thanks.

  24. Mary Davis says:

    How many does this recipe serve

  25. I’m kind of a novice at cooking, but this looked easy so I tried it. OMG! It turned out perfectly and sooooo delicious! I cut the recipe down to two pounds of pork riblets and reduced the other ingredients accordingly. I did use a large bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce but I didn’t use all of it. I’m just feeding my hubby and myself so we had lots of leftovers as it is. Hubby absolutely loved it, too. This is a new favorite.

  26. This looks awesome! Can this be cooked in the Crock Pot on Low for 8 Hours instead? (while I’m at work) Thanks!

  27. I had a party for football and we were tired of hamburgers. Saw this recipe. OOOHHHMMMYYYGGGOOOSSSHHH!!!! IT TURNED OUT SO GOOD! I am not a great cook but loving these crockpot ideas. We dnt have riblets so i did boneless pork rib. Making this again! Thank you

  28. Hi! Just wondering will boneless pork LOIN work for this as well? And would I have to cook it for any longer? Thanks!

  29. This recipe looks great… I’m making it tonight for my boyfriend and his/our kids alongside some homemade pepper/ranch potatoes! The only change I made was to add a bit of pepper, because I like it so much :) I shared this on Pinterest and will be sharing on my (new) blog as well if all goes well!

  30. My favorite BBQ sauce, yummy!
