I knew when I first stumbled across this recipe, I just had to make it! I am a huge vinegar lover, especially balsamic and knew it would make a great sauce. I'm always looking for new slow cooker recipes too. My apartment gets so hot in the summertime and it's always nice not having to use the oven.
This recipe is so easy and so flavorful! I love the sweetness from the honey and brown sugar, and richness from the balsamic. It's even better when you top it off with some yummy homemade coleslaw. The sauce is amazing and I know it would also be good thrown on some chicken and baked in the oven. Use your imagination, this one is a winner!!
Slow Cooker Honey Balsamic Pulled Pork Sandwiches (print recipe)
What you need:
1- 2 1/2-3 pound pork roast
1 cup onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup green pepper, diced
1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper
Place roast, onion, garlic, green pepper, thyme, rosemary, and broth in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 9-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
When pork is almost ready to be pulled start making the sauce. In a medium saucepan, combine all of the sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
While sauce is simmering, remove pork and veggies from the slow cooker. Drain broth. Pull pork apart with two forks, and return pork and veggies to slow cooker. Mix in the sauce, and cook on low for 1 hour.
Serve on a bun, topped with coleslaw!
