Monday Munchies: Crockpot Pulled Pork with Onion Strings

Pulled Pork

Yesterday turned into a “lazy Sunday” at our house – or at least as lazy as it gets with three kids under the age of three!  We were supposed to go to a picnic, but the threat of rain canceled it and instead we spent the day at home in our pajamas watching movies, playing play-doh, coloring, and of course, cooking.  I’ve been craving the pulled pork we had when we went to Tara Point in Grafton.  This recipe is just as tasty and definitely satisfied my craving!  I threw the pulled pork in the crockpot early on Sunday morning so we’d have it to enjoy during the Bears v. Packers game.  Even Mike said that this was very good and adding the onion strings makes it extra delicious!

Crockpot Pulled Pork

  • 1 3-4 lb. pork roast
  • 1 large yellow onion – diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic – minced
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 can diet cherry coke

Place roast and all other ingredients except for the coke in the crockpot.  Place on high for 8 hours. Stir occasionally while cooking to break up the meat.  Approximately 2 hours before serving, add the cherry coke.  Pile onto a fresh bun and add barbeque sauce and toppings of your choice.  I topped ours with Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce and the Pioneer Woman’s Onion Strings. This recipe makes a lot, but the pork freezes well.

Each Monday, I’ll showcase a family and kid-friendly recipe to share with your family.  Please let me know if you try one of my recipes! Enjoy!
