BBQ Pulled Pork Potatoes with Cheddar Cheese

This is a simple dinner, but one that tastes delicious and is a complete meal when paired with steamed green veggies – like broccoli. 

Use your favorite BBQ sauce – or make your own from scratch.  I’ve been experimenting with a new BBQ sauce, and we tried that out this time.  It was tasty, but we think we like our cherry BBQ sauce a bit better. 

If you have two crockpots, I recommend making this using two.  If not, you can either make the meat a day in advance and just reheat it, or you can bake the potatoes in the oven. 

BBQ Pulled Pork Potatoes with Cheddar Cheese


  • 1-2 potatoes per person eating dinner
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Your favorite BBQ sauce (ours is this cherry BBQ sauce)
  • 1-2 lbs. pork roast or pork ribs
  • Extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


Begin by placing the pork into your crockpot.  Sprinkle with garlic and onion flakes, if desired.  Then, pour the BBQ sauce over the top.  Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.  When done, use two forks to shred the pork. 

If you have a second crockpot, place the scrubbed potatoes into the crockpot, spritz them with olive oil and sprinkle a few granules of sea salt.  Cover and cook these potatoes in the crockpot on low for 4-6 hours, or on high for 1-2 hours.  {see these directions for photos} 

Alternatively, scrub the potatoes, spritz with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.  Place on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour. 

To serve, slice open potatoes, top with shredded BBQ pork & sprinkle with cheese.
