As the cold weather has started settling in, I am definitely wanting to utilize my slow cooker again. For me, the slow cooker is not something that I really use during the Spring and Summer months, which makes it even more exciting to start using again in the Fall. I also love how quick it is to cook dinner so much earlier in the day and then not have to worry about rushing home to get dinner started, when it actually is all ready to go when you get home.
My husband mentioned pulled pork the other day and that he hadn’t had it in such a long time, so I decided to make pulled pork sandwiches for dinner. I created my own recipe based on a few other recipes that I found, but feel free to be creative with the seasonings, you can’t go wrong! I served the sandwiches with broccoli and french fries to make dinner a little bit more fun.
Please excuse the lack of attractive photos, I realized at the last minute that I had gotten too wrapped up in cooking and almost forgot to take them. I promise the pulled pork tastes better than it looks!
Gluten-Free Pulled Pork
3 lb. boneless pork shoulder
18 oz bottle of gluten-free BBQ sauce (I used KC Masterpiece Barbecue Sauce)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
dash of salt
dash of pepper
1 cup water
Rinse off pork shoulder with water. Place in slow cooker. Add in BBQ sauce and seasonings. Add in the water and cover slow cooker with lid. Cook on high for 5-7 hours, flipping the pork every two hours. Once pork is fully cooked, shred it with a fork. Drain excess liquid as necessary. Serve on gluten-free bun, with extra bbq sauce if desired. Enjoy!
