Exquisite Pulled Pork

Krystal Johnson

"A rich blend of sweet and savory, this fall-off-the-bone, tender pork makes a perfect sandwich whether on a roll or in a tortilla. Great by itself or as a side dish too!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Pour 1 teaspoon olive oil into a slow cooker and arrange sliced onion over oil. Place pork roast over onion.
  2. Cook on Low until pork is very tender, 8 to 9 hours. Transfer roast to a platter and discard onion and liquid. Shred pork with two forks.
  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a stock pot over medium heat; cook and stir chopped onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add shredded pork, tomato paste, molasses, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, salt, and black pepper; stir well. Cover and simmer until sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To make a more diabetic friendly version, use 2 tablespoons Splenda(R) Brown Sugar Blend and 1/4 cup molasses with an additional tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Not sugar-free, but much lower!
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.
