This is my go-to potluck, party, and get together recipe! It is ALWAYS a crowd-pleaser, and so, so easy to make!! The amount of flavor this pork has will knock your socks off and everyone will be asking you for the recipe.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We couldn't find a pork butt any smaller than a 7 lb one so that's what we used for testing. It took the entire 12 hours to cook... but it was worth the wait. The meat just fell apart when we took it out of the Crock Pot. The pulled pork is sweet and tangy since it slow cooks in soy sauce, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, and spices. We put the pulled pork on a toasted Brioche bun with sweet pickles to make sandwiches. So tasty!
