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.

  • Boneless Pork Riblets
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Brown Sugar
  • Dry Mustard
  • Garlic Powder

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

Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Pour half of the bottle of barbecue 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.

Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork Sandwich recipe

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.

Pork riblets cooked in the crock pot.

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.

Pulled Pork made in the crock pot for pulled pork sandwiches

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!

  4. Brenda Lee says

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

  5. Anne says

    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.

    • says

      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.

  6. Jerica says

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

  7. Cheryl says

    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!

    • says

      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

    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 :)

  9. Melissa says

    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!

    • says


      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.

  10. Ale says

    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.

    • Kate says

      I dont have a crockpot too. Tried this today using an oven in a very low setting (225 F) and it worked. I used ceramic loaf pan, covered it with foil, and baked for 4 hours, then took it out to stir and pull the pork apart and baked without the foil for another 2 hours or until the sauce becomes very sticky. Had to add worcestershire sauce to suit my taste. It’s the best ever!

  11. Jilian says

    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.

  12. Sophie says

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

  13. Fabiola says

    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

  14. Steph says

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

  15. says

    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!

    love this recipe and have made it for group gatherings. I’ve found that it serves way more than 6 people. Have you found the same? I’m thinking at least 16 sandwiches . . .
