Pulled Pork - "a Leaner version"

Everybody loves pulled pork, but not everyone wants the fat associated with the cut of meat used for traditional pulled pork - the Boston butt roast. Using the lean boneless pork loin and a tasty made from scratch bbq sauce will result in a flavorful dish with a lot less fat and calories!


  • One 5 pound boneless pork loin (adjust size of roast and BBQ sauce for number of servings you desire)
    For the Bar-B-Que Sauce
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • ½ tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 36 ounce bottle ketchup
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • Mix all ingredients EXCEPT onion, with a wire whisk. Stir in onion.
  • This sauce can be made ahead, without onions, and frozen for up to 2 months.


  1. Spray 5 or 6 quart crockpot with nonstick spray. Place sliced onions on bottom of crockpot. Place pork loin on top of onions, fat side up.
  2. Pour bbq sauce on top of pork.
  3. Cook on low for 8-10 hours until pork is fork tender.
  4. Remove pork from sauce; remove fat from top of pork.
  5. Pull pork into shreds, removing any fat or gristle, with two forks or your fingers. Put pulled pork back in sauce to absorb the delicious sauce. Serve right from your crockpot.
  6. Serve on buns of your choice with a nice cold beer!
