My brother created this recipe a few years ago. It's great for family gatherings, games days, or make-ahead meals. Many of the ingredients (garlic, chili powder, worcestershire) are easily adjustible, so feel free to modify to your particular taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add all ingredients EXCEPT PORK to the slow cooker.
  2. Divide pork into quarters.
  3. In a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, sear pork on all sides.
  4. Add the pork to the slow cooker and mix with the sauce.
  5. Cook for 8 hours on low.
  6. After cooking time has completed, use two forks to pull the pork apart. If you are unable to shred the pork, it isn't fully cooked yet.
  7. Stir mixture to ensure all pork is evenly coated.
  8. Spread horseradish on bottom half of bun, add portion of pork, and top with shredded cheddar.
  9. EAT!

Very tasty! I used canned chipotles in adobo (approx 2) instead of the chile powder. The pork was very tender & shredded easily. We thought the sauce was flavorful although tomato-ey. The thin sauce reminded me of a southern style mop sauce with it's kick of tang from the vinegar. We enjoyed our meal. Thank you for sharing your recipe! :-)

Your brother came up with quite a yummy pork recipe. I cut the amount of chili powder in half because of the kids, but made no other changes. I served this on soft kieser rolls with creamy horseradish sauce. Thanx dor posting this!

This was so good! I subbed Splenda for half of the brown sugar and used regular chili powder, otherwise followed as written. Served with a spoonful of vinegar-based cole slaw on each sandwich. Thanks for posting!!
