Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe
This easy pulled pork recipe is a crowd pleaser and great dish for cooking once, eating twice!
Fall is my favorite time of the year, the crisp cool weather, colorful fall foliage, boots and scarves and all of favorite hearty meals. While I use my slow cooker year round, now is the time I use it the most, filling it with tasty soups, chili, roasts, stews and more. I love tossing a few things in the slow cooker and let it cook all day. It makes my house smell incredible and the prep and cleanup is easy.
Did you know October is Crocktober?! And I’m super excited to be working with Crock-Pot® Slow Cookers because not only am I going to share a recipe for Slow Cooker Pulled Pork today, but one lucky TidyMom reader is going to win a Crock-Pot® Cook & Carry™ Digital Slow Cooker with Heat saver™ Stoneware!
If you are someone who uses your crock for parties and/or tailgaing , this is the perfect Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker for you!! This portable slow cooker eliminates hassle and mess when transporting cooked foods from home with a secure tight fitting lid and locking system to ensure contents do not leak or spill. The Crock-Pot® Cook & Carry™ Digital Slow Cooker with Heat saver™ stoneware keeps food warmer longer so you can take your meal on the road and have it ready to serve on arrival. With Digital settings, you can select your cooking time and go about your day. After cooking is complete, your Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker will automatically shift to the “Warm” setting. So cool right?
The only thing better than crock-pot recipes, is making a dish that I can cook once and eat twice. Recently Kirsten shared her recipe for pulled pork in the slow cooker and I loved that her recipe calls for hard cider. So I combined the amazing pulled pork recipe that I cook in my roaster, and used the WoodChuck Hard Cider for a fabulous Slow Cooker Pulled Pork recipe! It’s a great dish for football season and post season baseball!! We’ve been eating pulled pork sandwiches and Buffalo Pulled Pork Nachos!
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
A delicious and simple pulled pork recipe for the slow cooker.
- 4-5 pound pork butt roast with bone (or pork shoulder)
- 12 ounce bottle Woodchuck Cider (the alcohol will cook off, but for a non-alcoholic version use apple juice or cider)
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
- 2 tablespoons Kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon minced onion
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- Rinse roast and pat dry
- Using a small bowl, combine brown sugar, salt, olive oil, garlic, minced onion and chili powder until well combined.
- Rub all over roast. Be sure to get into all creases and folds in the roast. Place roast in Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker
- Pour the Woodchuck Cider around the pork roast.
- Place the lid on your slow cooker and cook on medium low for 4-5 hours (about one hour per pound).
- When the internal temperature has reached 145° and is fork ready, remove the roast from the slow cooker. Remove bone (if you have one) and use two forks to shred the meat until it is all separated. Pour 1 cup of juice from the pan over the cooked meat.
- Serve on buns with barbecue sauce, or use to make nachos, quesadillas, chili or more!
