Pulled Pork Sloppy Joes BBQ

I call these pulled pork "sloppies," as they're not really barbecue and not really sloppy Joes. So, they're a kind of hybrid, if you will ... but delicious, if you want to just dive in and not discuss it ;-)

  • 2 pound boneless pork roast (or 2-½ pound bone in)
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 6 ounce can tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup molasses
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ tsp ground dried thyme
  • 2 Tbsp garlic, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp dry mustard


  • Add pork to slow cooker and turn heat to high.  Drizzle with the olive oil and cook for 6-8 hours or until it's falling off the bone.
  • Remove meat from slow cooker and separate out any fat or bone, pulling it into bite-sized pieces as you go.
  • Return meat to slow cooker and add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix well.  Turn heat to low.  Cook for another 30 minutes to 1 hour (the longer the better for improved blending of flavors).
  • Serve by itself or on buns or rolls.
