  1. I’m think it’s before but you don’t stir it up just add it to over the already seasoned cubes. She added the bbq sauce step before she states how long to cook it so that’s how I interpret it. I’ve cooked similiar recipes like this and I always add during the cooking not after (although it might be yummy to save some to add on after )

  2. Josie- this came at the perfect time! I found some clearance pork rib meat at Vons plus had my $1 off any fresh pork item exp 8/31- thank you!!! Going to make it now! Great for this hot weather- keep the kitchen coo!! I’ll serve with rice, more of an asian flare taste [adding some ginger and soy- and chopped green onions when serving].

  3. Josie this is excellent thank you! I don’t know if it’s because I’m English or just old but I can’t get my head round “pulled pork” so to find a good recipe like this amongst all the pulled pork sandwiches etc was a breath if fresh air and to find it works so well too us a great bonus.

  4. Made this and it was delicious! Didn’t add regular salt just seasoned salt…and only used 1/4 t. garlic powder. Also sprinkled red pepper flakes over the bbq sauce. Used a whole bottle of Kraft Thick and Zesty bbq sauce and I will definitely make it again and again. The meat came out soooo tender! I served with french fries but will be awesome over rice too! Definitely a 5 star recipe!

  5. Curious, was the water necessary? I find the sauce is thin and doesn’t attach to the pork, so wondered if I needed to increase the bbq sauce or next time leave the water out. I did cook for the 3 hours but was wondering about the bbq sauce being thin and not sticking to the meat. Thanks

  6. I made these today. Such a disappointment! The sauce was thin and runny and the rib bites were so dry I couldn’t feed them to my guests.

  7. Made my pork bites for our party this weekend. Also had the issue of soupy bbq sauce. I removed the pork from the crock, and put them into a pan on the stove with fresh sauce from a new bottle and tossed the bites to coat with sauce. Let warm on low for 20 minutes. That solved the problem perfectly. I used the soupy sauce as a dipping sauce. They were gone in the blink of an eye, and all I heard all night was. “Omg….good”. Thank you.
