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.
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. Cole slaw is the perfect side dish, whether you choose creamy or a vinegar based slaw. 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!
