Updated Mar 11, 2014

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder blade roast (3 lb)
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher (coarse) salt
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper sauce
  • 12 kaiser rolls, split
  • 1 pint (2 cups) coleslaw with sweet-and-sour dressing (from deli)

Steps

    Spray 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Trim fat from pork; place in cooker. In small bowl, mix brown sugar, salt, pepper and paprika; rub over pork.

    In medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients except rolls and coleslaw; pour into slow cooker.

    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 9 hours.

    Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board. Shred pork with 2 forks; return to cooker and mix well.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Topping a pulled pork sandwich with slaw is a Southern tradition. There are different types of slaw–this uses the non-creamy dressing style.
  • tip 2
    We call for kaiser rolls in the recipe but feel free to use your favorite kind of buns.
