My plan was to save this recipe for Super Bowl Sunday but my husband woke up this morning and told me he wanted pulled pork. Not only did he tell me he wanted pulled pork but he went out and bought all the ingredients! That is the ultimate compliment to my semi homemade recipe. We use this recipe for many cozy football Sundays and probably anytime we have a big house party. This flavorful recipe feeds a lot of people on a small budget. Sometimes I get frustrated since I always serve pulled pork for parties but everyone loves it so why stop! We like to serve with my skinny broccoli cole slaw, pioneer woman’s mac and cheese and fresh cornbread.
BBQ Pulled Pork
- 2lbs Pork Tenderloin
- 1 McCormick Slow Cooker Chicken seasoning packet*
- 1 large onion, cubed
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup favorite BBQ sauce
Skinny Broccoli Cole Slaw
- 1 bag store bought broccoli cole slaw
- 3/4 cup fat free sour cream
- 2 tbps milk
- 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- dash of pepper
- 2 dashes cayenne pepper
*Why are you buying the chicken packet for pork?! We know it seems strange but trust us it’s soo good
Clean and trim pork tenderloin of fat and place in slow cooker. Place onions and garlic on top of pork.
Mix sauce ingredients together by combining McCormick seasoning packet, ketchup, brown sugar, and cider vinegar (the sauce will be very thick).
Then pour sauce over pork and turn slow cooker on low for 6 hours. When the crockpot has 10 – 20 minutes left on cook time remove pork and shred with two forks. Place pork back in slow cooker with sauce and add BBQ sauce. Mix well and cook on low for last 10 – 20 minutes.
In the meantime mix broccoli slaw with sour cream, milk, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, sugar and cayenne pepper. Taste to test and add more seasonings if desired. Do not use a metal bowl when mixing as ingredients will not stick.
When complete take pork out of crock pot and serve on potato rolls topped with cole slaw. Yum!
