    Remove pork to cutting board, and shred using 2 forks. Reserve 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Discard remaining cooking liquid. In medium bowl, mix reserved cooking liquid with barbecue sauce and remaining 1/4 cup vinegar; return to slow cooker with shredded pork. Cover and cook on Low heat setting about 20 minutes or until warmed.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you like your pulled pork on the smoky side, try adding 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika to the pork rub.
  • tip 2
    Short on time? Store-bought coleslaw makes a great sandwich topper and saves you a step in the process.
