“What’s the secret to your pulled pork?” people ask. I stutter, and stumble and blush and try to come up with an answer.
Because the truth is my secret is a pouch of Clubhouse slow cooker seasoning and a couple of pork tenderloins I toss in the slow cooker. I haven’t been able to make a pulled pork that comes out as tender and tasty as when I use the spice mix. My only complaint is the amount of sodium, otherwise the ingredients are pretty straightforward.
The real secret to this delicious meal though is the apple cole slaw. The tartness of the slaw and the sweet & savoury pork is a perfect combination.
Apple cole slaw
4 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp cup packed light brown sugar
1 tbsp cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp minced celery
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded green cabbage
1 large carrots, shredded
1 Granny Smith apple, grated
Combine the first 7 ingredients to make your sauce. Add the cabbage, carrot & apple. Toss lightly until the slaw is well coated.
Chill for at least an hour and serve as a side, or on top of the pulled pork.
