Pulled Pork

  • Place all pulled pork ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours.
  • Pull pork from crock pot and shred with a fork and knife.
  • Remove 2/3 of the juice from the crock pot. Transfer juice to a medium size sauce pot and bring to a simmer.
  • Transfer shredded pork back to crock pot and turn on low.
  • While you are waiting for the juice to simmer, in a separate bowl, add 2 teaspoons of corn starch to ¼ cup of water. Mix thoroughly.
  • Once the juice is simmering, add corn starch mixture and keep stirring until you reach desired thickness. Remove sauce from heat once desired thickness has been reached.
  • Mix sauce and pulled pork together to coat.


  • Place all coleslaw ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir thoroughly.
  • If you like more vinegar-based coleslaw, add vinegar to taste preferences. If you like sweeter coleslaw, add white sugar to taste preferences.
  • Once the sauce and coleslaw have been completed, serve by spooning pork and coleslaw onto buns.
  • For added flavor, lightly toast buns, top with American cheese.
