Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Pulled Pork
I am often tasked with bringing a main dish to church potlucks and pulled pork is always a big hit. To be honest our church potlucks are big, and lucky for me, because I am a Crock-Pot Lady I have several slow cookers (I think my slow cooker count was 8 at last count!)
This pulled pork recipe features some brown sugar for added sweetness as well as a little apple cider vinegar which brings some tanginess to the meat.
There is a simple spice rub to rub into the meat before it goes in the slow cooker so that your meat is perfectly seasoned.
And then you can use your favorite brand of bottled barbecue sauce (or homemade BBQ sauce if you are feeling inspired).
The meat comes out super tender with a ton of flavor and is always a big hit with everyone at the potluck.
And leftover freeze up great for another meal!

How Long Can You Leave Pulled Pork In A Slow Cooker?

What Can I Make With Pulled Pork Besides Sandwiches?
If you don’t want to make sandwiches with the pulled pork you can use the shredded pork in wraps, on salads, in quesadillas, in tacos, or just eat plain as is or over cooked rice. Use your imagination and come up with your own way to eat the delicious pulled pork!
Can You Make Pulled Pork The Day Before?
Pulled pork is super versatile and you can of course make the pork the day before your party or get-together. In fact, you can make your 3 to 4 days ahead of time and stash it away in food storage bags or containers in the refrigerator. To re-heat the pulled pork in your slow cooker the day of your party just add the pork to your slow cooker, add about 1/4 cup of water, cover and cook on HIGH for 1 to 2 hours until everything is nice and hot. Then turn your slow cooker to the WARM setting to keep it warm for serving.
