Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
- Prepare your slow cooker with pam or non stick spray.
- Place the pork shoulder in the crock pot.
- Add a 50/50 mixture of white wine and ginger ale to your crock pot. Since slow cookers come in different sizes, the size meat you purchase and the amount of liquid used will vary.
- Add enough wine and ginger ale so that it covers the meat.
- Place chunks of fresh cut onion on top (add optional salt & pepper):
- Cook on low for 6-7 hours (or on high for 4 hours)
- Remove the meat from the slow cooker.
- Using a fork, shred the meat away from the bone. It will fall right off because it’ll be so tender!
- Place the shredded meat in a pot over medium to low heat.
- Add about a cup of BBQ sauce to the pot (more or less depending on the size and your preference).
- Stir in the BBQ sauce until fully combined.
- Serve hot!
Pulled Pork Sandwiches
We like to eat pulled pork sandwiches on fresh dinner rolls from the bakery. I cut them in half, butter each side, then cook them in a pan until they are perfectly brown. The buttery flavor, mixed with the crunch of the toasted bread, combined with the deliciously tender pulled pork is unbeatable!
Add a fresh salad and some french fries on the side. You know what else I love? Putting cabbage (or lettuce) and purple onion on each of my sandwiches. Sure, my kids don’t like the lettuce and onion… but maybe someone in your house likes it too! Oh and don’t worry, the alcohol in the wine cooks off so this recipe is good for the entire family:)
