Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork

Posted by

Here’s a health-ified version of BBQ Pulled Pork. You could just pour a jar of sugar loaded BBQ sauce into the slow-cooker with a little extra water OR you can make your own sauce and feel better about the ingredients! I served it with a tangy broccoli slaw and sweet potatoes. Since I only feed two people, I froze half for an easy meal in the future. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork

  • 2-3 lbs pork loin or shoulder roast
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp ground mustard seed
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
Place all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours. Remove pork and shred using 2 forks. Turn slow cooker on high for 30 minutes and leave uncovered to allow sauce to concentrate. Turn off slow cooker and add pork to sauce. Toss to evenly coat.
Serves 8 or freezes well for up to 6 months.
