Slow Cooker Apple Pulled Pork
This recipe will make your whole house smell wonderful! This is an easy fall dish that everyone will love. It is sweet, salty, porky, and finger licking good! I have used several different cuts of meat for this recipe but pork shoulder or pork picnic seem to work the best. It does not matter if you use bone in or boneless cuts of meat as it is easy to remove the bone once the meat is cooked. This is a perfect recipe to make when you are planning to be out for the day as this is a recipe you put together and then leave it alone.
I like to use a slightly spicy barbecue rub for the pork but your favorite dry rub will work great for this dish. Tart apples make this dish complete as it balances out the sweet pork and smoky salty rub.
5 pound pork shoulder or pork picnic
6 medium apples
12 ounce beer
Dry barbecue rub
Core and then slice the apples and set them on the bottom of the slow cooker.
Generously spread dry rub over the entire pork piece and then set on top of the apples.
Pour the beer into the slow cooker. Turn the cooker on high and cook for 6-8 hours until the pork is tender and cooked.
Using two forks pull the pork apart. If using bone in meat remove the bones. Stir the pork to soak up the juices and serve on buns.
We also like to serve some of the juice on the side to dip the pulled pork sandwiches into as well as some barbecue sauce for dipping! Yum!
