My picky family is agreed they all like pulled pork and since most of us are trying to lose some weight, I really tried to eliminate as much fat and sugar as I could. Country ribs were much cheaper than a pork butt roast. There was considerable fat once I took them out of the package. By the time I was done trimming off the fat my 3 pound package of meat weighed closer to 2 1/2 pounds. But when the cooking liquid cooled, there was hardly any fat on top, so I must have been successful! Forgot to photo - next time!!

How to Make Easy Pulled Pork (Slow Cooker)

Step-by-Step

  1. The night before you want to serve this: Cut off as much fat as possible from meat. Place in zip bag.
  2. Mix rub ingredients together, add to meat and massage everything together so the meat is covered. Place in refrigerator.
  3. Next morning: Slice one onion and distribute on bottom of crock pot. Place meat on top and cover with slices of remaining onion. Pour in the ginger ale.
  4. Cook on HIGH for 8 hours or so. Remove meat to cutting board and pour liquid into measuring cup.
  5. Use two forks to pull meat apart. The onions will be quite soft and can be pulled along with meat.
  6. Return meat to crock pot. Add BBQ sauce and some of the liquid - depending on how dry the pork is. If you want to strain out the remaining onion from the reserved liquid, you can add it back to the meat. Or not.
  7. Cook for another 1-2 hours on LOW. If it seems too dry, add a bit more reserved cooking liquid.
  8. Serve on buns with coleslaw and pickles.
