Easy Oven Cooked Pulled Pork
I've become like the crazy pulled pork lady lately and offer to bring it to like, every gathering (always with mac and cheese, obviously). It's so good and so easy that I just keep making it in absolutely ridiculous quantities. This recipe is simple and incredibly delicious.
1 bone-in pork butt, 5-8 pounds
4 tablespoons dry rub, divided (I like Famous Dave's Rib Rub)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, diced
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1 cup low sodium chicken stock
Rolls & slaw for serving
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Rub pork with 3 tablespoons dry rub, making sure to coat all surfaces.
In a large, oven-proof Dutch oven with a lid, heat oil over medium high heat.
Sear pork on all sides until well browned (but watch carefully, the sugar in the rub burns quickly.
Add in the onion, vinegar, BBQ sauce, liquid smoke and chicken stock. Stir as best you can to mix.
Bake, covered, at 300 degrees for 4 and a half hours.
Take the lid off and continue baking until a dark bark has formed and the meat is tender, about an hour.
Remove from oven and allow pork to cool until it's cool enough to handle.
Shred with two forks and serve topped with BBQ sauce and slaw on toasted buns or rolls.
