- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

- Slice onion, peel and slice apple. Place the onion, apple, bay leaf and pork in your slow cooker.
- Then whisk together the broth, half the grilling sauce, tomatoe paste, flour, chilli powder, Worcestershire sauce, garlic (minced or diced fine) and pepper. Pour into the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or until done.

Made this for my DGSs who do not like anything differant so I was a little nervous about the apple in this - but it was very well recieved and both boys went back for secons. Being lazy, On the last step I just mixed the sauce and flour, added to the pot on warm and it thickened up just fine. The apples just seemed to add an extra flavor that you couldn't really pick out as apples - just a very good differant. This may be my permanant pulled pork recipe from now on.
