What the best thing in the morning other than a pair of BBQ Pulled Pork and fresh homemade burger bun? Yep, BBQ Pulled Pork Burger :).

Lately, since we bought a crock-pot slow cooker, I am just like a kid who has new toy and can not stop play it :). So, I kept searching and looking for any recipe that cooked or can be cooked in slow cooker.

The thing I like cooking with slow cooker, I just dump everything in it, turn on the electric and leave it until it is cooked without worrying it will burnt. But, really, you need to cook it at early morning or the night before, so you are able to enjoy the food at the right time.

So yesterday, I asked my hubby which one he prefers, paella or bbq pulled pork. Without hesitated, he chose bbq pulled pork which is I wished he choose it ;).
The preparations are really simple and easy, also, the ingredients are not too complicated *which is good if you are not in the mood of cooking ;)*

Meanwhile, when I am waiting for my bbq pork is tenderized. I prepare the ingredients to bake this wonderful moist burger bun, which I got the recipe from epicurious *I made the dog bun before*.
This combination is just purrrrr....fect ;).

BBQ Pulled Pork

3 lbs pork loin
2 to 3 yellow onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, pasted
2 bottles (@18 oz) hickory smoked bbq sauce
Salt, to taste
Burger buns

Put the pork loin in the slow cooker bowl. Top it with sliced onion and bbq sauce. Sprinkle it with salt.
Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or until meat is tender.
Remove pork from the slow cooker bowl, and shred it with fork. Transfer the pork back into the bowl, and coat it with sauce. Cook for another 20 minutes.
Serve it on burger buns or rolls.

Burger Buns

For dough:
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup warm water (105—115°F)
1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup sugar
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt

For tops of hamburger buns:
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Make dough:
Bring milk and cream to a bare simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cool mixture to 105 to 115°F.
Meanwhile, stir together warm water and yeast in mixer bowl and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. (If mixture doesn’t foam, start over with new yeast.)
Add warm milk mixture, sugar, flour, and salt to yeast mixture and mix at low speed, scraping down side of bowl as necessary, until flour is incorporated. Increase speed to medium and beat 6 minutes. (Dough will be sticky.)
Transfer dough to a lightly oiled large bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a kitchen towel (not terry cloth) and let rise in a draft-free place at warm room temperature until doubled, about 2 hours.

To make hamburger buns:
Butter 2 large baking sheets. Punch down dough, then roll out on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin into a 14-inch round (about 1/2 inch thick). Cut out as many rounds as possible with floured cutter, arranging 3 inches apart on baking sheets. Gather and reroll scraps once, then cut out more rounds.
Loosely cover buns with oiled plastic wrap and let rise in a draft-free place at warm room temperature until they hold a finger mark when gently pressed, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375°F with racks in upper and lower thirds.
Brush buns with some of egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake, switching position of sheets halfway through, until tops are golden and undersides are golden-brown and sound hollow when tapped, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool completely.


  1. Anak2 and hubby demen tuh ama pulled pork. Tp aku biasanya gga pake BBQ sauce, pake mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup dstnya. Emang enak sih masak di slow cooker, tinggal masuk2in bahan, sore pulang kerja dah jadi.

  3. Nyummm !!! I like Burrito with Pulled Pork too! You can just add some Mexican spice, it tastes awesome.

  4. Mmm, pulled pork! I remember I went to my butcher to get a piece of pork to make something like this with and he looked at me like I was insane - he thought I was talking about ham. The idea of cooking a pork joint for 10 hours was completely alien to him - oh well... missing out on this tender, delicious awesomeness is his loss!

  5. @BB: Iya enak yah bbq pulled pork nih, gue juga doyan banget apalagi makannya pake buns yang baru mateng...yummy banget dah. Elo bikin ndiri yah syl bbq sauce nya? Pengen deh gue kapan2 bikin ndiri sauce nya, soalnya kalo bikin ndiri bisa ngatur tingkat kemanisannya. Kalo beli jadi kan rata2 pada manis tuh...
    Iya bener banget, enaknya masak pake slow cooker ga takut kurang air lah, ato gosong lah.

  6. @Kartika: enak tik masak pake slow cooker, tinggal cemplungin aja smua bahan, trus tinggal deh ga bakal angus ato kurang air.

  7. @Leony: that's a good idea!! I like burrito, will try it someday ;)

  8. @Charles: hahaha....that's true. To me, the cooking time is pretty scary too, 10 hours! :). But it is worth it ;).
