This recipe comes to us from reader Laura C.  and just looks so yummy! A lot of pulled pork recipes call for bottled BBQ sauce, but not this one which make it stand out in my book! While bottled sauce is a time saver for sure, there is just no creativity to it if you know what I mean!

Ever wonder what entree you can make in your small dip-sized slow cooker that will feed your whole family? This recipe is super tasty & super lean!
Ingredients
  • 2 Tablespoons Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Chili Powder (salt-free)
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tablespoon Apple Juice
  • 1¼ Pound Pork Loin (I usually buy a pork loin in the bag on sale and cut into thirds or fourths to freeze for this recipe, and make sure to thaw)
  • Dinner Rolls Or Hamburger Buns
  • Optional For Serving: Hot Sauce, Mustard, Pickles
Instructions
  1. Mix spices together and rub over pork.
  2. Put pork into a small dip-sized slow cooker, and pour apple juice over pork.
  3. Cover slow cooker and cook 3-4 hours (Depending on your slow cooker). The pork is done when a fork can split the meat.
  4. Remove pork to cutting bard, and use 2 forks to pull into shreds.
  5. Return the meat to the slow cooker and mix with the juices from the bottom of the crock.
  6. Put about ⅓ c pork onto each bun bottom. Add optional condiments, and top with the bun tops.
