Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

This Crock Pot Pulled Pork is smoky, delicious, and an easy slow cooker recipe perfect for pulled pork sandwiches with healthy coleslaw.

What You Need

Whisk together tomato sauce, applesauce, maple syrup, liquid smoke, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. You are basically making barbecue sauce from scratch.


Then add the pork roast and spoon some sauce on top.


Cover and let the slow cooker do its thing on low heat for 10 hours. I highly recommend to use low setting versus high heat.


Remove the meat from the slow cooker onto a cutting board, cover it with foil and let rest for 20 minutes while sauce is cooking. Then using two forks, shred the meat and discard any bones, tough tissue or excess fat.


Crank the slow cooker to high heat. Slowly whisk flour into the juices at the bottom of slow cooker. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.


Once done, add back the shredded pork in crock pot and stir.


Serve on a bun topped with healthy coleslaw.



Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
