I tend to use my slow cooker most in the cooler months of fall and winter. It really lends itself to cooking chilis, stews, and other hearty, tummy-warming dishes. But now that it’s spring and summer is just around the corner, I’m not ready to put my slow cooker away. Why reserve its use for only half of the year when it makes meal preparation so easy? I have a couple of slow-cooker recipes that are great served year-round, including asian-inspired dishes, my family’s favorite shredded chipotle beef, pulled chicken, and now this BBQ pulled pork.

This recipe could not be easier. It takes just five minutes to get it started in the slow cooker. Once the pork is cooked until it is fall-apart tender, you shred it, mix in some BBQ sauce, and gently rewarm it before serving.

I usually serve my BBQ pulled pork on whole-wheat buns. It’s also delicious made into bbq pulled pork quesadillas, or even tacos. I’ve made this a few times now, and each time it’s been a hit with Julia and William. An easy dinner that my kids request more of? I’ll say this recipe is a keeper.
