  • 2 Large Yellow Onions Thinly Sliced
  • 6 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 5 Pound Boneless Pork Shoulder Twine or Net Removed
  • 2 Cups Prepared BBQ Sauce

Serve With:

  • 2 Cups Prepared Coleslaw
  • 6-8 Bakery Style Rolls


  • Spread the sliced onions and garlic in a single layer on the bottom of a slow cooker and pour in chicken stock.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the next 4 ingredients until evenly combined.
  • Dry pork roast with paper towels to remove any moisture from packaging. Evenly rub the spice mixture over pork roast and set on top of the onion mixture. 
  • Cover and cook 6-8 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.
  • Remove the pork from the crockpot to a cutting board. 
  • Set a sieve over a heat-proof mixing bowl and pour the onion-liquid mixture into the sieve. Place the drained onion mixture on a cutting board and roughly chop them into bite-sized pieces. Return the chopped onions to the crockpot and discard the liquids.
  • Using 2 forks shred the pork roast, removing any large pieces of fat. Return the meat to the crockpot. 
  • Pour in the prepared BBQ sauce and toss to evenly combine it with the onions and shredded pork. 
  •  Cut bakery rolls in half, top generously with pork mixture, add an extra drizzle of BBQ sauce if desired, top with coleslaw and enjoy! Pass the extra napkins <3
