This Sweet Onion Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe is slightly sweet, slightly tangy and easy to make in the Crockpot!
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.
While we already LOVE pulled pork, pulled pork with onions is even better. They add an extra layer of flavor and it has become a family favorite.
This recipe is super easy to make. It's basically dumping the pork, onions and a bunch of seasonings in your slow cooker and letting that slow heat do all the work.
For serving, I love to dish it up on a flavorful bun. Coleslaw is the perfect side dish, whether you choose creamy or a vinegar based coleslaw. And I always like some potato chips with a sandwich too!
You might want to consider using a slow cooker liner for this dish. We all know how hard it can be to clean up after cooking in a Crockpot! You can find them here. Once you are done cooking and serving, just pull the liner of the pot and throw away. You’ll be left with a totally clean slow cooker with nothing to wash!
