Bbq Pulled Pork and Chipotle Onion Sandwiches

by Aggies Kitchen on January 27, 2009

I learned how to make pulled pork sandwiches
last year and am so glad I did.

This has got to be one of the best ways to feed a small crowd, especially one over for a sporting event such as Super Bowl. It’s no fuss…you let your pork roast (I use Boston Butt) cook all day in the slow cooker…the meat will be moist, tender and ready to serve on buns with your favorite sauce by game time. This time, I kicked it up a notch by adding sweet and spicy caramelized onions to the already tasty sandwich.

Our favorite Bbq sauce is Sweet Baby Rays…what’s yours?


This sandwich is my entry into The Recipe Girl’s

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Recipe from Aggie’s Kitchen

1 Boston butt or pork shoulder roast (4-6lbs, depending on the size of your slow cooker)
1 large onion, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
3-4 whole, crushed garlic cloves
1 cup water
your favorite Barbeque sauce

1 large red onion, thinly sliced
1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
1-2 tablespoons of oil
2 teaspoons of chipotle chili powder
couple – few dashes of Tabasco Chipotle hot sauce

Place pork roast in the slow cooker; add water, sliced onion, salt and pepper and garlic cloves. Cover and cook on low for about 9 to 11 hours, or until very tender. Drain all juices off, discard any fat and bone. Shred or chop pork. Continue cooking on high for about 1 hour.

Prepare onion topping by adding 1-2 tablespoons of oil in non stick skillet over medium high heat. Add onions to pan, salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook for approximately 10-15 minutes, or until soft. Add 2 teaspoons of chipotle chili powder and a couple of dashes of Tabasco Chipotle sauce to onions. Combine and continue to cook for another 10 minutes. If onions are sticking to bottom of pan, deglaze by adding a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to pan.

Serve shredded pork on potato rolls with your favorite barbeque sauce, top with caramelized chipotle onions.

That looks amazing! Pulled pork rules. I make it in the oven since I don’t have a smoker or a slow cooker big enough to fit a whole shoulder. Heh. My favorite bottled sauce is Bullseye.

Funny you should post this right now. My good friend from Ga is at my house and she was just requesting bbq something- anything! In fact, she just came in here and said ” that is what I am talking about”. Looks like we are making this. Thanks, Aggie!

My hubby loves pulled pork, but I rarely make it since I don’t eat meat. Maybe he will get a treat soon! Nice job!

This looks fantastic Aggie! Yum! I would love to come over for one of those….pulled pork is one of my all time faves.

BBQ sauce – I love to make my own, but of the bottled kind, I go for Trader Joe’s. It is the only one I can find with out HFCS.

LOVE LOVE LOVE pulled pork. HATE HATE HATE onions – but I can leave those off!

I make a North Carolina bbq sandich, that has no bbq sauce at all – its cooked in slow cooker with vinegar, crushed red pepper flakes, and TABASCO. I always use a pork shoulder – in the summertime I can get a pork shoulder for .99 cents a pound!

Okay, my mouth is watering, I have to go.
