Lightened up Pulled Pork

This has much less fat than it's authentic version! I like to use chipotle and honey barbeque sauce but I suggest you use your favorite. The best part is you can put this in the crockpot before you leave for work and dinner will be ready when you get home!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim fat from pork then cut into 3-inch cubes. Place in a large slow cooker with onion, barbecue sauce, brown sugar and vinegar. Cook on HIGH for 5 hours or LOW for 10 hours.
  2. Remove meat with a slotted spoon. Shred pork using 2 forks and stir in half the sauce.
  3. Place meat inside rolls and spoon remaining sauce over top; close sandwiches.

Oh So Good! We'll make this lots and probably experiment with differemt BBQ sauces. My only addition was 2 cloves of garlic; sliced. My slow cooker has a removable insert so I whipped this up before bed & let the meat marinate overnight in the fridge, then turned it on in the AM. The delicious aroma that greeted me at the door after work was heavenly and the meat was succulent! THANX!
