BBQ Pulled Pork Baked Potato

Pulled pork baked potatoes are amazing! Cook them both together so the one pot dinner is done at the end of the day. Easy slow cooker pulled pork recipe with russets cooked right on top!

Pulled Pork Baked Potato

Ever had a pulled pork baked potato at your local county fair? We have and they were like beyond amazing. You can make these with leftovers but fresh is always best. Just 2 ingredients for fork tender protein and fluffy taters are one of our favorite easy Crockpot recipes. (affiliate links present)

Pulled Pork Potatoes

Ok so what is the best way to make baked potatoes? I will list a few choices below but that would be if you cooked them separately. Ain’t no need for that here friends. 😉

  • I bet you’ve made these before and served them as a side dish right? Filled with butter, sour cream and chives is boring. Period.

I will enlighten you here to the fact that just about anything and everything tastes delicious inside a fluffy baked potato. It can and should be served often as a main dish with vegetables, shredded meats and all the things inside. We will convince you of that too after you make this one.

Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking shall we?? First off I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each one has an occasion to be used like….

  1. This is my favorite 6 quart programmable one with a locking lid so it’s great for bringing to a potluck too.
  2. If you just want to serve a few appetizers you should get this one that sit side by side one another.
  3. I prefer not to use liners, but rather just spray olive oil inside before adding my food for easier cleanups.

Let me give you a peek of my pretty thang I bought recently. It goes with my kitchen so I can just leave it out on the countertop all the time. 😉

Pulled Pork Loaded Baked Potatoes

Ok so I did tell you I would share how to make these apart from the filling. I am not quite sure why you would bother separating them since all can be done together but I get it. My husband is a no mixing food kinda’ guy and I have been in that boat before. 😉

What Different Ways Can you cook potatoes?

  1. Since we are using our Crock here, I will share slow cooker baked potatoes first.
  2. Then we move on to our ahhhhhmmmaaaazing Traeger baked potatoes, takes a while but so worth it.
  3. Baked potatoes in air fryer using the air crisp or air fryer function is the fastest and you’ll get the crispiest skin this way.
  4. You can get them tender using our Ninja foodi baked potatoes method.

And last but not least we will show you how to make slow cooker shredded pork shoulder or chops on the bottom with these on top.

This time boneless pork chops were layered on the base of it with just a bottle of bbq sauce. That is literally all you need to get it tender. If you can find a boneless pork shoulder cheaper then that works too, just slice it into 1″ pieces and lay like you see here so it doesn’t take as long to cook.

Pulled Pork Twice Baked Potatoes

Once they are done you can just slice open, fluff the insides, shred meat and load it right in. If you wanted to make twice baked potatoes instead that is wonderful too. You’d just;

  • Slice each potato in half lengthwise
  • Scoop out 3/4 of the middle leaving a bit remaining on the edges of the potato shell so it doesn’t fall apart
  • Put insides, shredded cheese, bbq shredded pork, chives etc… into a bowl and combine
  • Spoon back into the potato jacket
  • Put into preheated air fryer basket with more cheese on top and follow our air fryer potato skins timing.

You can brown these in a preheated oven at 400 degrees on a baking sheet too. 5-6 minutes usually does the trick to melt the cheese on top.

Leftover Pulled Pork Recipe

If you did have leftovers you could just cook the veggies alone using one of the methods above and be done. Pig isn’t the only protein that works well inside, and of course there are vegetables galore that you can pile inside if you want meat free.

What Goes well with Pulled Pork

For years I would fill these with our 5 ingredient Instant Pot chili, we still do this today. One I was thinking of a way to use up leftovers and it dawned me that pretty much any protein would taste great inside this Idaho staple like;

  1. It makes a great leftover taco meat recipe
  2. For a quicker method with the other white meat, follow our Ninja Foodi shredded chicken steps
  3. And for beef I would use our bbq Instant Pot shredded beef recipe

BBQ pork is just so easy to throw together though.

Pork Stuffed Potatoes

You are just going to need barbecue sauce, taters, meat, salt and pepper and you will want to top with cheese and maybe some sour cream at the end.

  • Spritz the liner of your Crock with nonstick cooking spray. Place the pork loin chops in the bottom of the slow cooker and season with salt and black pepper.
  • Top with the barbecue sauce (add 1/2 cup of pineapple tidbits if you want it sweeter too). Place a layer of aluminum foil over the pork. Place the potatoes (rinsed and dried) over the foil.
    • Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours or until the potatoes are cooked through and fork tender.
  • Carefully remove the potatoes and foil from the slow cooker. Shred the bbq pulled pork with two forks. Split the potatoes open and top with pulled pork and shredded cheese.
  • Serve with any topping like cheese and green onions, sour cream, additional barbecue sauce, or cooked bacon.

We also love chopped up bbq meatballs stuffed inside if I have leftover taters left. Jump to recipe below and let us know if you tweak it beyond this.
