This pork stew recipe is rich, flavorful and filled with delicious, summery, barbecue flavor!
What do you do when you try to make pulled pork for the first time and fail miserably? Add some chicken broth and call it stew! I’ve been on a barbecue kick lately. I just can’t seem to get enough of the flavor. So when one of my recipes went wrong, I added some barbecue sauce and ended up with this delicious and satisfying accident!
I really wanted to make some crock pot, BBQ flavored, pulled pork. In fact, it’s all I could think about for days. So finally, I gave into my lustful BBQ yearnings and broke out the crock pot.
I was so certain that I knew what I was doing that I really didn’t pay attention to a thing I did. Needless to say, 8 hours later, I had a pot of stew/soup. Not pulled pork. But hey, why fix something if it isn’t broken? I ended up with nearly a full 5 quarts and it was almost gone by the next day (My family ate it all. I hadn’t had a single bite!). So yes, it’s good!
And if you’ve made pulled pork in a crock pot before, I’d love some input. I’m completely baffled by the process.

PORK STEW RECIPE:
A delicious and happy accident turned a mistake into this lovely summery stew!
- 4 lb. pork loin chops (about 8 chops)
- 3 cups chicken broth
- 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- 1 lb. fingerlin potatoes (halved or whole)
- 2 cups sliced carrots
- 16 oz. jar barbecue sauce (no sugar added - I used one called, "Bone Suckin' Sauce" for this recipe. OrganicVille is also good)
- 2 tbsp. onion powder
- 1 tbsp. garlic powder
Place all ingredients in a 5 quart (or larger) crock pot and cook on high for 6-8 hours.
When the pork reaches at least 165 degrees F. on a meat thermometer and the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork or knife, it's done.
Chop up the meat into bite-sized pieces.
Allow to cool and serve.
