The weekend before my husband left for his training, I let him pick anything he wanted me to make for him for dinner that week. He suggested I make him pulled pork in the crockpot. He always tells me that he loves meat from the crockpot served on bread or a tortilla (easy enough for me).
I absolutely love my crockpot. It’s the best invention ever, especially for working women. I use it as much as I can, especially during the colder months. Kevin’s request for pulled pork was simple, but he has high standards. He doesn’t like it drenched in sauce. The night before, we were watching America’s Best BBQ on Netflix. So I decided to go with what I learned on the BBQ show and make up my own pulled pork.
In a small bowl, I combined the following…
2 Tbs brown sugar
2 Tbs paprika
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs onion powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
In a separate bowl, I combined…
2 Tbs Olive Oil
2 Tbs Worcester sauce
2 Tbs Cider vinegar
After both mixtures were combined, I placed the roast in the crockpot. (I just bought a pork roast on sale at Kroger for around $5.50. You could really use any kind of pork, shoulder, loin, chops… I just went with what was on sale.) I poured the liquid mixture over the roast, then covered it in the seasoning. After that I set the timer for 10 hours and let it cook on low.
To go with the pork I created 2 sides…coleslaw and baked apples.
Baked apples are a fall favorite for me! They are super easy to make and go perfectly with pork. Here is all you need to make baked apples…
Apples (I used one granny smith, one red delicious and one gala apple on this day).
Cinnamon- 1-2 Tbs
Brown or white sugar- 1-2 Tbs
All you need to do is slice the apples, sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top, mix it up and bake for an hour at 375. It’s as simple as that.
My coleslaw recipe came from my Pinterest page. It was a delicious healthy coleslaw made with greek yogurt and apple cider vinegar. I definitely recommend this recipe. Check it out below!
After all my side dishes were completed, I layered my pork, apples, and coleslaw on a bun to create the perfect fall pulled pork sandwich. This is definitely one recipe that you will want to try this fall! Enjoy!
