Savory Monday–Pulled Pork


One thing my husband likes, a lot, is BBQ.  A couple years ago I bought him a small smoker and we use it all the time.  We’ve made Smoked Pork Shoulder and you can see the recipe here.

I decided I wanted BBQ but without the BBQ as it’s a downpour outside.

Back in Ottawa every summer, there is a Chicken & Rib festival and each booth there’s always pulled pork sandwiches.  So I went on a search and found a recipe, then I changed it and after several tries came up with this.


You will need:

  • piece of pork – I’m using a pork loin
  • Apple cider
  • Slow cooker/crockpot
  1. Put 1 cup cider into bottom of slow cooker, place pork on top.  Turn on for 8 hours.
  2. Remove pork from pot and shred.
  3. Serve with your favourite BBQ sauce either on a bun or just on it’s own!

This is a great meal and so easy.  You know, so you can spend the other time you would have normally spent cooking, with your family!

Thanks for looking!

  1. I haven't been to the Ottawa Rib Festival for years but did enjoy it when I went. Never made a pulled pork sandwich yet but grateful that you posted your recipe. I will try it. It does look delicious. Wondering what adding a little bit of maple syrup to the crock pot would do?
