Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe

You’ll Need

  • 1 pork shoulder or butt (about 3lbs.), trimmed of any excess fat
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. grainy Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Prep and Cook

  • Put the pork in the slow cooker
    In a large bowl, combine the marinade ingredients
    Pour it over the pork, rubbing it in
    Cover and cook on low heat for about 8 hours
  • Remove the meat from the slow cooker and pour the liquid into a medium saucepan
    Set it over medium-high heat and bring it to a boil
    Then turn it down slightly (so it’s still bubbling) and reduce the liquid by half
  • While the sauce is thickening, shred the pork with two forks (remove the bone if there is one) Pour the thickened sauce over the meat and stir to combine
  • Tip: This pulled pork is absolutely delicious served on whole wheat or white crusty buns with a tangy slaw!
