Easiest Pulled Pork EVER

Pulled pork sandwiches drenched in barbecue sauce may be one of my all-time favorite sandwiches. Give me a pulled pork sandwich over a burger any day!

Tonight’s pulled pork came together in a snap in the easiest recipe for pulled pork in the entire world.

Well Hello There, Pork

Ryan tried this pulled pork one weekend when he was in Gainesville at the University of Florida for his executive MBA program. (He went one weekend a month for 18 months… pretty awesome, huh?)

He was staying with our friend Ross who gave my hubby-to-be a tutorial on how to make the easiest pulled pork. When Ryan tried the moist meat, he was inspired to call me immediately and tell me this was something we just had to make.

We were on a pulled pork kick for about two months after that!

Since I have my girl’s movie night this evening and I knew we’d be crunched on time for dinner, I figured this would be the perfect night to resurrect this delicious dish.

You only need two ingredients to make this pulled pork:

  • One can of beef broth
  • One pork roast

Beefy Broth



Trim any unwanted fat off the pork before placing it in a crock pot. Pour the can of beef broth over the pork and let it cook on high (low actually works too) for six to eight hours.

Then remove the pork from the broth and crock pot. Use a fork to shred the meat.

Shredded Pork

That’s it! Delicious. Easy. Moist. Tasty.

You can then enjoy it as is or get a little crazy and add gobs of BBQ sauce like me! It’s also great in quesadillas, soups, pastas, etc.

What’s the easiest recipe you’ve made that appears difficult?

We served the pulled pork with green beans and roasted carrots and butternut squash with cinnamon. Very tasty!

Now I’m off to my friend’s apartment for the first installment of holiday movie night. For those of you who asked, I believe we’re watching Mixed Nuts starring Steve Martin tonight.

I’ve never seen it but I’m a BIG fan of Stevie!

Great Friends, Great Food, Great Night

I arrived in Phoenix yesterday half an hour early! My flight left Orlando close to 3 p.m. and after Ryan dropped me off, I had a good hour to kill before my plane took off. I explored the airport a little bit and enjoyed a makeshift lunch of a light Starbucks Frappuccino and an Atkins caramel double chocolate crunch protein bar.

Of course the Frappuccino was fantastic as always. I also enjoyed my protein bar. This flavor is my ultimate favorite bar… ever! It is so rich and chocolately and tastes more like a candy bar. Though I’m not crazy about the slew of ingredients, it’s wonderful on occasion.

I flew Southwest which meant I got to pick my own seat when I boarded. Fortunately I got the very last aisle seat. Phew! I get minorly claustrophobic on planes and an aisle seat is a savior for me. The couple I sat next two was very friendly and I enjoyed chatting with them on the flight.

I have never been on a flight where they’ve offered so many different snacks! The flight attendants came around multiple times offering Ritz chips, 100 calorie packs of Chips Ahoy! cookies, crackers with cheese, peanuts and pretzels! I enjoyed a pack of the Ritz chips while reading the lastest issue of Health magazine.

The flight was a little bumpy, but I slept for a bit, got through three different magazines and played Sudoko. Not too bad!

My friend Michaela was flying into Phoenix from Arizona and both of our flights were on the ground within 20 minutes of each other. Great timing! Our friend Ryan picked us up and drove us back the house he shares with our other good friend Steve.

We enjoyed a tour of the house, played with Ryan’s super-friendly dog Fiona and sat out in the backyard for a bit before heading off to dinner.

I don’t remember the name of the place we went to for dinner (and everyone’s still sleeping so I can’t ask at the moment), but it was AMAZING. The place was an outdoor restaurant with two bars, multiple fire pits, white Christmas lights, a live band and the most delicious burgers and BBQ sandwiches.

I ordered the BBQ pulled pork sandwich and devoured the entire thing. It was HUGE but so, so tasty and I was very hungry.

(Sorry for the icky picture, but it was dark outside and I had to use my flash.)

We had a great time catching up and laughing over a few beers. I really want to go back to this place! It was so unique.

Me and Steve

It was so nice to spend quality time with such wonderful friends. I used to live across the street from Michaela and have known her since we were in elementary school and we’ve been friends with Ryan and Steve since junior high. I miss old friends!!

Today I’m not sure what the plan is… since I cannot seem to sleep in, I’m happy I had a chance to blog for a bit! I am missing Ryan and Sadie but it sounds like they’re having fun without me and spent some quality time together at the dog park yesterday.

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! 🙂

Meat Man

Ryan does all the grillin’ in this household and I’ve dubbed him my meat man. He know exactly how I like my chicken cooked (slightly burnt) and he even entertains Sadie in the backyard while keeping a watchful eye over the meat. Quite the multitasker!

He put his grilling expertise to work today when he grilled up BBQ chicken and a red pepper for dinner.

While he was busy outside, I packed our lunches and steamed some broccoli and cauliflower to eat with the grilled goodies.

Everything was ready around the same time andI fixed myself a colorful plate.

I was amazed at the sweetness I tasted in the grilled red peppers. They were slightly charred and very flavorful.

We have a lot of chicken leftover and it will be featured again in tomorrow’s lunch, which is fine by me because I love BBQ chicken!

Question: What’s your favorite veggie on the grill?
