Spring has definitely sprung in Southern Kentucky and we have the sunburns to prove it. Time for BBQ and picnics and a little sunscreen. Time to sit back, relax and enjoy this simple, delicious slow cooker BBQ pulled pork with a big glass of iced tea.
I often take pictures of food outdoors to try to capture good natural light in my photos. One day my oldest son asked me why I never shot food photos with the beautiful natural landscape in the background. I didn't have a good answer. I was always so focused on the food that I never thought about the gorgeous landscape that was right in front of me. The other day I was shooting these photos in my usual style with my photo boards and I couldn't help but notice the beautiful colors and glow of the sunset. I remembered my son's comment about using the natural landscape as a background and I decided to try it. I loved the results and will use more landscapes as backgrounds in the future.
This BBQ pork is super easy in your slow cooker. A little honey, water, onion, and BBQ sauce is all you need. Use your favorite store bought sauce or a delicious homemade BBQ sauce.
We all know that slaw and pulled pork go together and pineapple and pork go together so I decided to try pineapple and slaw...together. It was a lovely combination, The pineapple gives the slaw a natural sweetness so use more or less pineapple depending on how sweet you want your slaw. Salt and pepper to taste. I like a little extra salt and pepper when I make slaw.
Hoping your spring has sprung and you are enjoying quiet sunsets and delicious BBQ too.
Slow Cooker BBQ Pork with Pineapple Slaw
2 1/2 to 3 lb. pork shoulder roast
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp. honey
1. Place pork fat side down in slow cooker. Add onion, water and honey. Cook on low for 7 to 9 hours.
2. Remove pork from slow cooker and pull apart with two forks discarding any bone and fat.
3. Leave about 1/4 to 1/2 cup broth in the slow cooker, draining off the rest. You may not need to drain off any broth. Return the shredded pork to the crock-pot and add desired amount of your favorite BBQ sauce stirring to combine.
4. Cook on low until warmed through.
1 small head cabbage, shredded
1/2 to 3/4 pineapple diced small or cut into thin chunks. (Add more or less depending on how sweet you want your slaw)
1/2 cup miracle whip or mayo
2-3 Tbsp. honey, adjust to taste
2-3 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar (adjust to taste, adding more as needed)
1 tsp. poppy seeds
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper (adding more salt and pepper as needed)
Mix the dressing ingredients together and toss with the cabbage and pineapple.
This makes a lot of slaw, but you can easily cut this recipe in half.
