These BBQ pulled pork sandwiches are a delicious and easy meal to throw together to serve a crowd. They feature slow cooked barbecue pulled pork, a crisp and tangy coleslaw and bread and butter pickles.

TIP: The pulled pork cook time depends entirely on size and thickness. The larger and thicker the cut(s) of pork, the longer the cook time. Cutting the pork into smaller, stew-sized pieces will reduce cook time.

Cooking mode

Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 8 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 4-inch chunks
  • 2 bottles (18 ounces each) prepared BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar, divided
  • 2 bags (16 ounces each) prepared coleslaw mix
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • kosher salt, as desired
  • ground black pepper, as desired
  • 20 hamburger buns

Toppings (Optional)

  • Sliced bread and butter pickles
  • Step 1

    Place the pork, BBQ sauce, and 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar in the pot. Gently stir to combine, then cover with the lid.

  • Step 2

    Turn dial to SLOW COOK, set temperature to HI, and set time to 8 hours. Press START/STOP to begin cooking. For best results, stir the pork mixture halfway through cooking.

  • Step 3

    While the pork is cooking, prepare the coleslaw. In a medium bowl, add the prepared coleslaw mix, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, mayonnaise, sugar, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined, then set aside.

  • Step 4

    When the pork is finished cooking, it will be fork tender. Note that larger cuts of pork may require up to an additional hour of cooking.

  • Step 5

    When cooking is complete, remove the pork from cooking liquid and place in a large bowl. Use silicone-tipped tongs to shred the pork, then add approximately half the cooking liquid from the pot to the pork. Mix until the pork is evenly coated and the desired texture is achieved.

  • Step 6

    Evenly top the bottom halves of the buns with pork, coleslaw, and pickles if desired. Close the sandwiches and serve hot.
