Sweet & Tangy Pulled Pork

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 8 hours


12 servings

The slow cooker makes these super sandwiches a snap to put together on a busy weeknight. You’d think I'd slaved over them all day! I like to serve them with a side of creamy coleslaw or corn on the cob. If you don't have soy sauce, you can use 1/4 cup of broth instead. —Megan Klimkewicz, Kaiser, Missouri

  • 1 jar (18 ounces) apricot preserves
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3 to 4 pounds)
  • Hamburger buns, split, optional


  1. Mix first 4 ingredients. Place roast in a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker; top with preserves mixture. Cook, covered, on low until meat is tender, 8-10 hours.
  2. Remove pork from slow cooker. Skim fat from cooking juices. Shred pork with 2 forks; return to slow cooker and heat through. If desired, serve on buns.
