BBQ shredded pork

Yummy note: Growing up we didn't devise to far off of the ole ketchup, brown sugar, and onion flake mixture of bbq sloppy joes. Since I'm always looking to modify those classic recipes a bit, I took this one another step and decided to intensify the onion part of it. I started with some of the basics from the traditional recipe and have used it in the past for saucing pork, ground beef, chicken, and ground turkey! It really is a pretty standard sauce that amazingly has a lot of flavor from the can of french onion soup that is used. Sorry the measurements are kind of rough below, as I have a tendency to just sometimes just shake or pour ingredients when I'm throwing a dish together, not remembering to measure out...

BBQ shredded pork


2-3 pounds pork loin
couple shakes of a meat seasoning (I like the Weber Grill Creations brand of seasonings)
1 can condensed French onion soup
3/4 cup ketchup
drizzle of mustard
drizzle of BBQ sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
maybe a half or little less than half a can of coke or pepsi


Mix the ingredients in your slow cooker. Place pork loin on top and turn so all sides are covered in the sauce.

Cook on low for 8-9 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker and allow to sit for 15 minutes. While the pork is sitting, turn the slow cooker to high and begin to thicken the sauce that is left. Next begin to shred your pork. An easy way to do this is to use two forks and scrape against the pork loin getting your shredded pork, instead of chopping it up. Return to sauce and mix well. Serve on buns. Note: for the buns, I just used frozen bread recipe below.

Easy Buns


1 loaf of frozen bread, thawed but still cold

little bit of flour

sesame seeds

cooking spray


With a knife, cut loaf of thawed bread in pieces. I think I got about 8 pieces from it. Take each piece and roll with some flour and make into a roll shape. Dust with flour and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Place cut side down on a lightly sprayed baking sheet. Let rise until doubled in size. Remove plastic wrap and bake in 350 degree preheated oven for about 15 minutes of until browned.
