pork butt roast
1 1/2 cups
Heinz Tomato Ketchup

I have made this twice and wow! The first time I followed it exactly as it is and it turned out great. The second time I only had 1/4 cup of molasses, so I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar and it turned out perfectly! Put some coleslaw on top and it is the perfect sandwich. It was almost gone before I even got any!
Tried this overnight for lunch yesterday and was terribly disappointed. Very acidic and nothing like pulled pork I have had before. Sorry.
This was pretty good. Tasted like a BBQ sauce. I added extra molasses and I am glad I did. Instead of the rub/marinade, I mixed the spices with the molasses, vinegar, mustard, and ketchup and poured it over the pork in the slow cooker because I was starting with a piece of frozen pork. I cooked it on high for several hours and low for the rest for a total of about 8 hour or so. Skipping the marinating had no effect on the flavors, and how I did things was super-simple.
Unbelievable! So incredibly good. Only thing I did different was add 1/2 C molasses. Cooked it for 8 hours on high in crock pot. I did not know that pork butt came with a bone so I was a bit leary of using the cooking sauce on sandwiches due to possible bone fragments, something to be aware of. Delicious, tender, easy to prep. Served with Apple coleslaw.
This was very good after a few tweaks! I had a problem with the dry rub..it was TOO dry! So I added another tablespoon of oil. I thought the finished product was a little too tart so I added 1/2 cup of'Sweet Baby Rays' barbeque sauce to the slow cooker after I put the shredded pork back in...then it was PERFECT!!
This would be the first time I've ever made pulled pork and this recipe is outstanding. My family just loved it! Definitely will be making this again and again.
This recipe was absolutely delicious and super easy! I didn't have any molasses so I used 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup maple syrup which I think really played up the sweetness in the dish. The dish came out beautifully and was much easier than I expected. I sifted the sauce through a very fine colander to remove any bone fragments for safety. It was so delicious!
This was a very easy recipe! I prepared it for a Labor Day BBQ, and the compliments just keep coming! Instead of the butt roast, I used 5 pounds of pork shoulder and it still only took 8 hours to cook. To thicken the sauce in the crock pot (I ran out of ketchup and mustard) we added some bbq sauce and tonkatsu vegetable sauce. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!!
