This is an amazing recipe for Slow Cooker pulled pork!  The best part is you just pop it into the slow cooker and let it cook all day… and then dinner is ready when you are!!  I literally can pull the pork using a spoon it’s so tender!

I do love that this recipe doesn’t use a traditional sweet store bought barbecue sauce.  The homemade sauce has so much flavor and is really easy to make!  If you’re not familiar with chili sauce, you have to try it.  (It isn’t spicy at all).  I use it in most recipes calling for barbecue sauce and mix the two 50/50 for an incredibly zesty flavor.  It’s also the best meatloaf topping you’ll ever have (mixed 50/50 with ketchup)!

The slaw is best if it’s made a couple of hours ahead of time!  Once this is ready, the pork can be left in the slow cooker on low making it the perfect party food!  This is always a huge hit with the whole family or an easy dish on game day!

  1. I would love to try this , but the cut of pork I have is a Pork Tenderloin. Does anyone know if this can be prepared this way with this cut? I’m unsure about the shredding.

    • I have made this with pork tenderloin before. If you do make it with tenderloin, keep in mind that pork tenderloin is very lean so the end result, although delicious, will not be as moist.

  2. Love the chili sauce tips! Can’t wait to try this.

  3. This is a must try! Love the chili sauce idea.

  4. Love that you can make this in the slow cooker. I love the idea of using chili sauce. Sounds delicious.
