Pulled Pork, Slow Cooker
If you do not use pork, replace pork with the same amount of boneless skinless chicken thighs that have been trimmed of extra fat.
The Recipe: Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
- 2 medium onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup gluten free ketchup
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
- 2 tablespoons gluten free Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons gluten free prepared mustard
- 4 cloves minced garlic
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 3 pounds fresh boneless pork roast, cut into 3 pieces
- In 4 1/2- to 6-quart slow-cooker pot, stir onion, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, tomato paste, paprika, Worcestershire, mustard, garlic, and pepper until mixed well. Add pork to sauce mixture turning to coat well with sauce. Cover slow cooker with lid and cook on low setting, 8 to 10 hours or until pork is very tender.
- Transfer pork to large bowl or rimmed platter. Pour juices from the slow cooker into a saucepan. Heat sauce on medium-high heat until boiling. Stirring often, allow sauce to reduce slightly and thicken.
- While sauce boils, pull pork into shreds with 2 forks discarding any fat that needs to be removed. Return shredded pork to slow cooker and toss with thickened sauce to combine. Allow to cool. Package in freezer bags, remove as much air as possible, seal, label and freeze.
- To serve: Thaw. Warm until heated through. Spoon pork mixture onto baked sweet potatoes or the bottom of gluten free sandwich buns (like Noah’s rolls); replace tops of buns. Serve sandwiches with pickles, potato chips, and gluten free hot sauce if you like.
