Crock Pot Pulled Pork

My boys are big fans of pulled pork.  You've seen the recipes that I have posted for Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork (my hubby loves this one) and BBQ Pulled Pork.  And we all know that I like trying new recipes, so when I came across this recipe over at 100 Days of Real Food, I thought I should give it a try!  Here is the recipe:
Crock Pot Pulled Pork | Addicted to Recipes

Approx. 3 lbs of pork (loin, shoulder, roast), halved
3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, peeled and halved

In a bowl mix the spices together (paprika, salt, black pepper, cayenne, garlic powder, thyme).  Add in the honey, the red wine vinegar and the olive oil, mix well to make a paste.

Line the bottom of the slow cooker with the halved onion.  Lay the pork on top of the onion.  Spoon the paste over the pork - there will be way more paste than pork, and that's OK.  The extra paste will run down along the bottom of the crock pot and the onions will love that flavour. 

Cook for 8 hours on low, after 8 hours, shred the pork with a fork.

This one is another hit - it was very tasty.  We turned ours into sandwiches (of course!) and served with coleslaw.  Added bonus, an easy list of ingredients that are standard stock in our pantry.  Will certainly make this again.


  1. yum! this sounds so tasty! I love my crock pot and I will have to try this

  2. My hubby would die for this! I am going to have to make it!

  3. Love your blog! Would you mind swinging by mine and dropping a comment? Thanks!
