  • 4 pounds boneless pork shoulder (sometimes called pork butt)
  • 1 onion (sliced in rings)

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (I use gluten free)

    It was ok lacked a bit of stickiness for me, was a little watery. Next time I think I’ll add some maple syrup and maybe some cornflour,

    Soupy like some of the reviews had said and I didn’t add the water. I also used less ketchup but it didn’t help.

    I made the mistake of cutting the pork into strips or chunks, which I think caused the meat to be dry. The flavor was wonderful. The second night was much better and served over a rice, barley & sunflower seed medley. The liquid was delicious and so simple. Def worth doing again

    Tangy and tender. My family prefers theirs sweeter. Lots of juice after 10 hours so I removed the meat to a platter and then shredded. I added bottled BBQ sauce to taste.

    Sauce was very runny had to remove some... also I felt it lacked a BBQ FLAVOR. Had to add some store bought bbq sauce. Turned out great after that.

    Wow... very delicious. Omitted the hot sauce.. but to a T to the recipe. Everyone loved it and i used dinner rolls rather then large Buns. It was definitely soupy when it was done, but I just removed all the excess liquid and then served it in the crock pot. Definitely going into the favourites section.

    after reading all the great reviews, I think I expected too much. It was good but expected great.

    This was gross. It made the house smell like vinegar to the point it irritated my throat. I dumped the liquid and salvaged it with regular barbecue sauce. If I could give 0 stars I would.

    This turned out so well, friends asked for the recipe 6 months after I served it to them. I forgot I had even made it. Must be somewhat memorable!😉

    First time I cooked it for lunch so cut the meat into smaller pieces and cooked on the high setting of the crockpot. Had my boss and her chef mother over for the first time, they enjoyed it.

    Smells good and tastes great. Ended up prepping everything the night before and let the meat marinade in the ketchup overnight. Turned the crockpot on in the morning and came home to a tasty dinner. Husband hates onion, so I cut the onion in half and then removed them once it was all done. Retained the flavor without needing to keep the onion in. Will make again

    This recipe is my families favorite. We make it quite often. Setting it in the crockpot. When one of us comes home and smells it after working all day it's just awesome!!!

    Easy to make, great flavor, smells great while cooking, highly recommend it, I tried it for a family gathering and it was a huge success!

    It was very tasty -- however I only use the sauce as my pork was left over from slow cooking a pork shoulder. I thought the apple cider vinegar would too much, but it was a nice blend

    I used this recipe as a guide, halving it. I used 1 c ketchup, 2 TB molasses and a TB of brown sugar. I used 1 TB onion powder, finely chopped a half an onion, 1 TB each of garlic powder and chili powder. A TB of ACV, 1/3 cup of water. about a TB of Worcestershire low sodium sauce. No extra salt or Tabasco. It's simmering now. :) Tastes wonderful. I'll add enough pork to use the sauce up for sandwiches.

    Made a lot of extra sauce that I just served on the side after using my immersion blender. I cooked it overnight and reheated for dinner. Easy make ahead meal that's great for a crowd. There were 16 of us and still have some leftover.

    Very Tasty!!Meat is so tender, falls apart easily and is so delicious. (All the ingredients are items I already normally have on hand) I have used this recipe a few times and everyone loves it. Absolutely my go to recipe for pull pork. Smells so good while cooking that it is hard to keep the family away until it is ready. My kids <3 it
