Sweet Onion Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe

A few weeks ago I was looking around online for a pulled pork recipe and didn’t really find anything that I wanted…..so I improvised!  What I came up with was this slightly sweet, slightly tangy Sweet Onion Crockpot Pulled Pork Recipe.  I wish I would have taken a picture to include here….I promise to add it the next time I make it!


3-4 lb pork shoulder or Boston butt roast
2 yellow onions, very thinly sliced
2 tbsp brown sugar
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 c cider vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
salt & pepper
1/3 cup pickled banana peppers, chopped

Trim excess fat from pork and place in Crockpot.  Mix all remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and pour over pork.  Turn pork several times to coat.  Cook on low 8-10 hours.  Remove roast from Crockpot and pull pork apart using two forks.  Enjoy!
