Cook once and serve multiple ways? Yes, please! We like to get a LARGE roast and turn our leftovers into MAKEOVERS by serving the same main dish a variety of ways! You may not be able to pull the wool over your families eyes serving the same thing again and again, but put this tasty shredded pork on nachos, baked potatoes, tacos, and sandwiches and they won’t think twice about gobbling it up!

    Elizabeth, just put your leftovers in a freezer bag. I like to lay it flat so I can stack bags on top of each other. Be sure to write the recipe name on the bag! When you’re ready to eat it, just break it up (while it’s still in the bag) and put it in your crock on LOW for about 4 hours or HIGH for approx 2 hours. Happy Crockin’!

  4. Elizabeth

    This was great! Loved the flavor. Made this for dinner last night and it was a hit! How would I go about freezing the leftovers? I have a lot left and we are not going to be able to finish it all.

    Shelli, just use what you have! I’d go with the fresh garlic…a couple of cloves maybe. Remember, the longer you crock the more flavor you need to add. If you really love garlic you could even add 3-4 cloves. Stand back! Lol!

  6. Shelli

    I have garlic salt and fresh garlic. Can I use either of these, or should I just go buy the garlic powder? I want it to taste good!

    You can use frozen, Kristina. Just make sure you don’t turn your crock on first or it could crack your insert. Let the meat sit in the pot, put the ingredients over it and then turn it on. Also, might have to add an hour or 2 to cook time. Other than that, you’re all good! Happy Crockin’ to ya!

  8. Kristina

    Haven’t made this yet, but it sounds awesome! Was wondering if you could use a frozen pork loin or is it better to have it defrosted first. Thank you!

    Well, if you use a crock that fills 1/2 to 2/3 full then your crockin’ time won’t change much. But, if you’re using a large crock that leaves a lot of room inside then you’ll probably want to check your meat after 4-5 hours. You’ll know it’s ready when it EASILY shreds. Size and type of crock can make a big difference!

  10. Molly

    If a 5 lb roast is 6-8 hours on low, how long do you cook a 2-3 pound one?

  11. Angela

    This looks great!! Im going to have to try!!

  12. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    You sure can, Laura! This is a great one to freeze!!

  13. Laura W.

    I can’t wait to try this tonight. But I do have a question about the pork loin, after it’s cooked am I gonna be able to freeze what’s left?

    I think a 5lb would serve 10-12 people…depending on the appetites of your guests!

  16. Jennifer H.

    How much does a 5 lb pork loin serve? I’d like to make enough to serve about 25 people. Probably just using rolls vs full sized hamburger buns though.

  17. Melissa H.

    Will this work with a pork roast?

    Glad we could help bring out your “inner-cook”, Stacey…lol

  19. Stacey C.

    Made this last for the second time! I very seldom cook, and am very pleased to say that my hubby was talking about my “awesome” cooking to his buddies last night! lol Thanks girls!!!!

  20. Emily M.

    I made this a while back and I think I may have just gotten a bad cut of meat, or maybe overcooked it. The flavor was great, but it was tough and I had a hard time shredding the meat. I want to try it again, so we’ll see!

    Miranda, you should be good to go. It will have cooked a little over 6 hours.

  22. Miranda W.

    I am attempting this for a party with my girl friends this evening. I just now put it in the slow cooker. Any chance it will be done by 6:30?

  23. Crockin Girls

    Hi Crystal, I would say about 2-3 hours on low and see if it’s tender enough to shred. Don’t lift the lid too much, but since yours is already smoked maybe you can check it every hour. Don’t want it to overcook like you said :) Happy Crockin’ to ya!

  24. Crystal W.

    My husband smoked a pork loin and I would like to throw it in the crockpot (already cooked) using this recipe. How long should I leave it in the crock pot so that it will shred, but not overcook?

    Amanda, you can buy broccoli slaw in the produce section. It should be by the regular cole slaw. It is just a yummy alternative to regular cabbage slaw.

  26. Amanda K.

    May I ask what the broccoli slaw recipe is?

  27. cheryl d.

    yes you put it in raw

  28. allana l.

    so i am new to this… if the recipe doesnt specify that the meat needs to be cooked, do you just add it raw?

  29. Betsy M.

    I made this a couple weeks ago and it was great!! My husband likes the meat smoked so he added Liquid Smoke to it. I liked it both ways. We had a lot left over so I divided it up and froze it to use for a quick meal. A definite keeper!!

    We used the 18 oz bottle of Sweet Baby Rays.

  31. Melissa M.

    What size bottle of barbeque sauce?

  32. Scott C.

    I made this Saturday night for Sunday Brunch and it was AMAZING. Only cooking for 2 so I used a 2.75 tenderloin instad of the 5lb, adjusted recipe to suit. Flavor up there with Peggy Sue’s on a sandwich. Looking forward to using it in different ways!

    Question for the girls on the BBQ Sauce: Sweet Ray’s comes in several sizes. Can you confirm which size is ideal? Thanks!

  33. Denise A.

    LOVED, LOVED, LOVED! Thank you!

  34. Becky O.

    We LOVED this! My two daughters went on and on about how good this is! Woot!

  35. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Yes M’am! You use the whole bottle of BBQ sauce and the whole can of DP.

  36. Stacey C.

    Do you use the whole bottle of BBQ sauce and Dr. Pepper can?

  37. Jennifer M.

    Made this the other day! It was a hit in my house! Took 5 min. to throw together! One I will be making again! :)

    Jodi…just a dash of the onion and garlic powder will do ya. I’d say a tsp of each if I were going to measure it out :) Glad y’all like it! It’s nice to find a recipe that’s a keeper..Happy Crockin’

  39. Linda T.

    I made this without the onion and garlic powder because we can’t eat them, but it was still yummy!

  40. Laura B.

    Made this last week and it was delicious!!!

  41. Karen D.

    I made this last week with a 5 lb pork loin and had NO left overs! That’s how good it was! It fee 14 adults. Most had 2 ea. on reg. size buns. SO Yummy! And easy! Served with cole slaw and chips.

  42. Audrey K.

    I made this a week ago with 1 1/2 cans of regular Coke and the pork roast just fell apart by shredding it with a fork. The flavor is delicious. It’s such an easy, tasty recipe.

  43. Jodi A.

    Going to give this a try this weekend. For those of you have made it, how much onion and garlic powder did you add? Thanks!

  44. Katie C.

    Got this in the crock right now and smells AMAZING. Going to be ready in time for my Denver Bronco came tonight! Whoop whoop!! :)

  45. Andra H.

    Made this last night. Was really good, meat just fell apart. Delish…

  46. Lynn R.

    I made this for a party over the weekend – bought the little “slider” size buns and it was a huge hit!!

    This recipe is SO yummy and easy! It’s a family favorite for sure. It’s my go-to recipe when I need to make something for a big group. I always made it without the garlic and onion, but I really like adding those spices to the dish. It really gives it a nice kick! Thanks Crockin’ Girls :)
