Slow Cooker Texan Pulled Pork

January27

Once a month D, Sister #3 and I host an evening at our house where the Moms and Dads of babies, toddlers and young kids get to have a break and spend the evening with adults. They often look a bit harried as they arrive at our place with kids in tow. The number of kids range from two to four per family and when we have a full house there are ten adults and fourteen kids. We hustle the small fry into the dining room and we put down a quick supper. I say quick because the kids are always raring to get downstairs for a play with their buddies. In the mean time the adults fix a plate and head to the living room and tuck in at a more leisurely pace.

I try my best to fix a meal which will be pleasing to both children and adults and sometimes one group takes precedent over the other. But tonight I think that I may have a winner: Texan Pulled Pork with broccoli & kale slaw, ciabatta buns and one bite brownies for dessert.

My husband marinates and slow roasts pulled pork in a convection oven but I wanted the ease of a slow cooker. Great for "lesser" cuts like a shoulder.
Ingredients
  • cut of pork to your size and liking
  • 1 c your favourite BBQ sauce (I used Danny's Own Apple Butter BBQ sauce)
  • ½ c apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ c brown sugar (I used a brown sugar substitute, honey or maple syrup would also work)
  • 1 T prepared mustard (I used a new Winnipeg company's called Smack Dab)
  • 1 T Worcestershire
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1½ t thyme
Instructions
  1. Place everything together in a large slow cooker.
  2. Cook on high for 5-6 hours.
  3. Test doneness by pulling apart the meat with a fork.
  4. Pull off as much meat as desired and toss in remaining sauce.
