Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork

(recipe by Miranda Mowbray, Biting Life)

 

Ingredients (serves four):

3lb pork shoulder (you might have to call a day ahead if they don’t normally carry it this small)

3 tbsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, separated

1 1/2 tsp paprika

3/4 tsp mustard powder

1/4 tsp cumin

Salt and pepper

Canola oil

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

3 tbsp tomato paste

2 cups water

Potato-bread hamburger buns

 

Directions:

Combine 1 tbsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, paprika, mustard powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.

Rub the spice blend all over the pork.

Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat and cook the pork about 2 minutes on each side.

Whisk together the apple cider vinegar, tomato paste, 2 tbsp Brown Sugar Blend, and the water.

Add the vinegar mixture and the pork to the slow cooker.

Cook on low for 7 hours (or until the pork meat is basically falling off the bone). Flip pork shoulder after 6 hours.

Serve on hamburger buns with a little bit of mayonnaise (I like to pour some of the leftover sauce from the cooker over the pork before putting the top bun on!).

Enjoy!
