Pulled pork is always a hit with kids and adults, and this recipe makes pulled pork for a crowd so simple. There are only 5 ingredients to make this savory dish. It takes mere minutes to throw it all together. Your crockpot does all the hard work cooking it and making it fork-tender all day while you get on with your life. The bonus is that it won’t even heat up the whole house.
This recipe makes enough for at least 10 hungry people, but could certainly feed at least 12-15 depending on how high you pile it up. Want to make it into sandwiches like I did? Well, you just add some pickles and a bun for each person, and you’re good to go!

Thanks to Tastefully Simple for sending me some of the ingredients for this meal. This recipe was adapted from Tastefully Simple’s Perfectly Tender Pulled Pork recipe.
I first tried Tastefully Simple when my oldest child was less than a year old. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a decade. Tastefully Simple products appealed to me then because of the simplicity and rich flavor of the products. I’m happy to report that they are still out there producing the easiest and tastiest food mixes, sauces, seasonings, and snacks out there.
The Bayou Bourbon Glaze used in this recipe really reminds me of a General Tso sauce. The night after we had these pulled pork sandwiches, I actually used a few tablespoons of the Bayou Bourbon Glaze mixed in with some plain rice noodles to go with some orange chicken I had made. I was surprised at the kick that it gave the noodles! In the pulled pork, the flavors are much more mellow, but as a stir-in to the noodles, it was very assertive and spicy. My husband and I loved it and now I’m craving it again just typing about it!
The Onion Onion Seasoning and Garlic Garlic Seasoning are extremely versatile. I originally tried them as a main ingredient in a savory dip (for potato chips), and I’ll be blogging about them soon. They have so many other uses. I also like to include them in my breading mixes for homemade chicken nuggets. They are also both terrific additions to meatloaf or meatballs. The seasonings take foods to a new level for sure.
I love to use my slow cooker year-round for scrumptious meals that I don’t have to baby too much. This easy main dish is one of my new favorites for sure.
