BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Baked Potatoes in the Crock Pot

I promised an easy and delicious pork sirloin roast recipe this week, and this will not disappoint!  We devoured this for dinner last night – so simple, so easy, and loved by all!

So how do you make BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Baked Potatoes in the crock pot, you ask?

Let’s start with the simple ingredients:

  • 2 Boneless Sirloin Tip Pork Roasts (or similar cut)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 Stalks of Celery
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 1/2 c Water
  • Idaho Potatoes
  • Your Favorite Bottle of BBQ Sauce or Homemade Recipe
  • Sour Cream
  • Shredded Cheese

Directions for Making BBQ Pulled Pork Stuffed Baked Potatoes:

Note: This recipe serves 8-10 people.  Perfect for a family get together or to share with a neighbor! You can always 1/2 this recipe as well!

1. First start out with a pork sirloin tip roast, such as this one that I purchased at Costco for under $1.99 a pound. These came in a 4 pack.  For this recipe, I used 2 roast, which was just over 3 pounds of meat.

2. Place the roasts in a large crock pot with a stock of celery, a 1/2 cup of water, and a generous seasoning of salt and pepper.

3. Cover with a medium sliced onion.

4. Allow the pork, seasonings, and veggies to cook happily on low for 7-8 hours.

5. Meanwhile, clean and dry 6-9 baked potatoes, depending on the size of your crock pot. Roll the dried potatoes tightly in foil. (If you want to make a smaller portion of this recipe, use a mini crock pot with just a few potatoes and one roast instead of two.)

6. Fill your crock pot with the foiled potatoes and cook for 8 hours on low. No water or maintenance required! (You could also make these a day ahead and re-warm if you don’t have a additional crock pot on hand.)

7. After 7 hours of cooking the roasts on low, drain the liquid and shred pork. Pork temperature should read a minimum of 145 degrees.

8. Return the pork to the crock pot, and add your favorite BBQ sauce.  I an extra large bottle of Original Baby Ray’s, which I also purchase at Costco.  You may need up to 2 bottles of the regular size.  Just enjoy a taste taste on the house! Allow the pork to marinate in the sauce on low for 1/2 – 1 hour.

9. Now it’s time for the fun assembly. Spoon out an oval from the baked potato and fill with sour cream.

10. Top with a generous portion of the BBQ Pulled Pork.

    I have a recipe for “low fat peppered pork chops” that I like to make. You mix thyme and pepper and sprinkle thin center cut boneless chops with it, cook them in a skillet in a bit of olive oil, then deglaze the skillet with some worcestershire sauce and drizzle that over top of them. It’s easy, tasty and low fat!

    I have a Clean Eating magazine recipe for Pork Loin with peaches and plums, with a side of wild rice with pistacios and cranberries. Really yummy, and actually not that difficult to make!

    I make gringo carnitas…pork roast, onions, garlic, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, honey, and a half a lime. Squirt some ketchup and a couple cups of water, then Cook in the crock pot all day until it shreds super easy, then put on tortillas with all the fixins!

    I put two pork roasts in the crock pot with a can of beer, sprinkle, cumin, chili powder and garlic salt on. Cook for 8-10 hrs. Shred and then have tacos. With whats leftover, the next day I put it back in the crock pot with bbq sauce and we have pulled pork sandwiches. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Love the bake potatoe recipe

    This looks like a fabulous recipe.

    One thing I like to do Is to take a can of a thick broth stew, such as Dinty Moore, and pour that over the potato and top with cheese. You can add broccoli or anything else you like when you heat it. Makes it quick and easy meal.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Ok, maybe I have missed this in the directions, but am I cooking the potatoes on top of the roast?

      I think you need an extra crockpot for the potatoes, at least that’s what I assumed since both the meat and the potatoes take 7-8 hours to cook. I would just bake the potatoes in the oven for an hour..easier and I like the potato skin to get that baked crisp taste! Oh my yum!

      Sorry if I wasnt clear on that part… I did mine in two separate crock pots. Or you could make one ahead of time…

    My favorite recipe is when my hubby cooks it! 🙂
    He puts a dry rub of garlic, salt, pepper, and anything else he can find on a pork butt. He covers it in foil and cooks it on the grill. Only a charcoal grill that he works to make sure it stays at 125 degrees. He is constantly adding wood and trying to maintain it. It cooks for 8 hours. When he is done it has the most amazing hard yummy outside and the best pulled pork around. It is a ton of work though, so I like your recipe!!
