Slow cooker pulled pork, with a kick.

I’ve been crazy busy this week and partly because of this I decided to try a slow cooker pulled pork recipe.  I prepared everything on Thursday night and left it cooking all day Friday while I was at work.  It had been my intention was to take some pics and make it a photoblog/recipe post but I was knackered and just wanted to get it done on Thursday, and last night I just wanted to munch rather than get artsy with the finished results.

The recipe I followed was taken from metronews.ca and is below, its pretty good, a lot spicier than any other pulled pork recipes I have made, but tasted good bundled into buns with a side of broccoli coleslaw I made to go with.  I have just finished making pizza bases from scratch (first time) next onto the pizza sauce and then the left over pulled pork will be the topping along with a healthy (or is that unhealthy) amount of cheese.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

500 ml (2 cups) thinly sliced onions

1.5 kg (3 lb) pork loin roast

500 ml (2 cups) chopped, peeled apples

8 large onion buns

Sauce

1 bottle (455 ml) chili sauce

75 ml (1/3 cup) each grainy mustard and liquid honey

30 ml (2 tbsp) chili powder

30 ml (2 tbsp) each tomato paste and Worcestershire sauce

15 ml (1 tbsp) packed brown sugar

5 ml (1 tsp) smoked paprika (or 10 ml/2 tsp regular paprika)

2 cloves garlic, minced

Place onions on bottom of slow cooker. Place pork on top. Sprinkle apples over top and down sides.

Sauce: In a large bowl, mix together chili sauce, mustard, honey, chili powder, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, paprika and garlic; pour over meat and apples. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or until meat is fall-apart tender.

Remove roast to large plate. Using 2 forks in opposite directions, shred meat along its length. Stir meat back into sauce and serve on buns.

Makes 8 servings.
