Try these Slow-Cooked Barbecued Pork Sandwiches when you’re going to be away from your kitchen but want something delicious to serve to your family for supper.

Barbecued Pork Sandwiches Served on Homemade Sourdough Buns

(Post modified on 5/21/23.)

Sometimes the simplest recipes turn into your favorites. Like this one that uses a dry onion soup mix to give a pork roast a wonderful, delicious flavor. Cooked to a fall-off-the-bone tenderness for meat that practically melts in your mouth.

Removing Baked Buns from the Oven

Serve on your favorite hamburger buns, ciabatta rolls, or even sliced bread such as my Tangy Sourdough Bread. If you’re really feeling motivated, make your own! Try my homemade recipe for Sourdough Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns here.

Ingredients for Slow-Cooked Barbecued Pork Sandwiches

(See full recipe at the bottom of this post.)

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Ingredients for this Recipe

Gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

Sear the Roast in a Large Skillet with Oil

Using a large skillet over medium-high heat, sear all sides of the pork roast.

While this step is optional, searing the sides of the roast will help keep the roast juicy and delicious while it cooks. It’s always worth doing, unless you just don’t have time. And if that’s the case, don’t worry about it! 

Place Seared Roast in Slow Cooker

Place the pork roast in a large slow cooker with the widest part down.

If you don’t have access to a Boston Butt pork roast, which is one half of a shoulder roast, you may substitute it with a picnic shoulder roast, or even a pork loin roast (although it will be a leaner cut of meat and will not be as tender.)

Sprinkle Onion Soup Mix over the Roast and Add Water

Sprinkle with onion soup mix and freshly ground black pepper. Sometimes I add an extra 1-2 tablespoons of Cajun Spice to the roast, for an extra kick. See my homemade recipe for Cajun Spice Here.

When buying a dry onion soup mix, don’t worry about using a name brand such as Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix. I’ve used store brands with perfect success. 

Pour water over the soup mix.

Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours until the meat falls away from the bone.

Shredding Pork and Adding BBQ Sauce

Using a fork, shred the meat and pour your favorite barbecue sauce over all, stirring to combine.

Enjoy on Hamburger Buns, Chabatta Rolls, or Sliced Bread

Cover once again, and allow to cook on low an additional 40-60 minutes. Serve on warm hamburger buns, ciabatta rolls, or slices from a hard, crusty bread. Spicy pickles are also really good with this Barbecued Pork.

This recipe will serve 6-8 people. Serve with Easy Macaroni and Cheese, Yummy Baked Beans, Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad, or Grandma’s Coleslaw.
