Pork Recipes-Famous Daves Pulled Pork for the Crock Pot

Updated on December 27, 2012
4 stars from 8 ratings of pulled pork

Pulled pork, is one of my families favorites. While I was shopping, looking for something different for dinner. Another shopper was looking for the same thing. He suggested, Famous Daves Rib Rub, so I thought I'd give it a try. It suggests that it is only for ribs, but I included it in my pulled pork recipe, and it was fantastic!!

Would also be good on pork chops. Simply, sprinkle pork chops with rub, and place on your George Forman Grill. If I knew the name of my fellow shopper, I would give him credit for such a discovery.

With a few tweeks of my own, I came up with this delicious, crock pot idea. Which would be a good addition to any menu, or party, where there are a lot of people to serve. It would be easy to take with, serve many guests, and keep warm. I use my crockpot for meals that require ready to eat upon arrival. Translation: too busy to cook. Great for days when you would rather hang out by the pool, when it's too hot to cook.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 3 hours
Ready in: 3 hours 10 min
Yields: 6-8 servings


  • 1 pound pork roast, lean or trim fat
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3-4 tablespoons famous daves rib rub
  • 1 medium onion, diced (optional)
  • 1 small can hunts tomato sauce
  • 1-2 pinches brown sugar, can add more
  • 1-2 medium green pepper, diced or sliced (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce, (optional)


  1. Place pork loin in crock pot. Pour water into pot. Sprinkle Dave's Famous Rib Rub all over, generously. Set crock pot temperature to high. Let simmer until pork is no longer pink, and internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. Can be placed in a 325 degree oven, with approximate cooking time of 30-35 minutes per pound.
  2. When meat is done, remove from pot. Place on cutting board, will be very hot, and shred with two forks. Return meat to crock pot. Add remaining ingredients, and mix well. Continue cooking until desired consistency is reached. About an hour. Chicken breast may be substituted for pork.
  3. Serve on crusty rolls, such as italain rolls, with chips and coleslaw. You can make extra sauce on the stove. Place 1 tablespoon of oil, in a saucepan. Cook diced onion, add remaining ingredients. Simmer about 10 minutes, until thickened.
  4. Pork roast is as versatile as chicken, or hamburger. See other recipe ideas within my hubpages.
