  • Cover and cook 8 to 10 hours on low or 5 hours on high.

  • Transfer meat to a cutting board. Pull meat apart into shreds using two forks. Return meat to the slow cooker. Stir in barbecue sauce, vinegar, honey, teaspoon cumin, and ginger gently with a rubber spatula. Heat through.

  • Spoon meat into buns with a slotted spoon. Drizzle with sauce mixture as desired. Top with Lime Carrot Slaw.

  • Lime Carrot Slaw: Place a bag of pre-shredded cabbage and carrots into a large bowl. In a screw-top jar, combine olive oil; lime zest; lime juice; jalapeno; honey; salt; and black pepper. Cover and shake to combine. Stir into the cabbage mixture.

This was a pretty good Sunday night supper! I used 1/2 c. water as the cooking liquid and cooked for 5 hours on high. After adding the barbecue sauce and the other ingredients I felt the liquid needed to be reduced so I let it go without a lid until most of the sauce would stick to the pork. I felt the sauce was a bit sweet so next time I will omit the honey in the sauce as my brand of sauce is already sweet. I also wanted to pump up the flavor a bit and I added 1 tsp. adobo seasoning and 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika to the sauce before I reduced it. I wasn't too sure about the slaw but I have to say it grew on me. The combined flavors of the slaw and the meat complimented each other with the tiny bit of heat and tang of the slaw offsetting a little of the sweetness of the barbecue sauce. I have to say that the BEST part of this recipe is using the Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner! I have a 6 qt. pot and it's very heavy and hard to manage during cleaning. With these liners it's a minor wipe up and clean the lid. I do not want to run out of these little cook's helpers. Read More

I absolutely loved pulled pork. So I was very excited to try this recipe. I have to admit it wasn't what I expected. I prepared it exactly as written with the exception of not using wheat buns (we do not eat those) and have to rate it at three stars for a few reasons. First the flavor. I of course expected it to be somewhat sweet with the honey added in. It was TOO sweet. Also the amount of barbeque sauce it calls for wasn't nearly enough. My meat definitely wasn't saturated in sauce like the photo provided. I added more directly to my sandwich. Second the slaw. I love slaw as does my kids. But this one was just not good. The honey jalapeno and lime killed the flavor of the cabbage entirely (I like being able to taste the veggies too!) We ended up eating our sandwiches without it after all of us tried the slaw on a test sandwich. Another thing I noticed - the ingredients say 1 teaspoon cumin divided. However in the directions it calls for 2 teaspoons cumin total. I ended up splitting the teaspoon as I rarely ever cook with cumin and didn't want to overdo it (I couldn't taste it so maybe its supposed to be 2 teaspoons.) Lastly a note for people who don't normally cook pulled pork in a slow cooker. There will be a good bit of liquid in the bottom when you pull out the meat. The recipe doesn't state what to do with the liquid. I removed it as it would have been too soupy otherwise. We all finished our sandwiches it wasn't horrible I just wouldn't fix it again. Read More

My family thought this was fabulous! I've tried several pulled pork recipes and this is by far my favorite. The meat just fell apart...so tender! I served the slaw on the side due to some picky eaters but it was also delicious. This is definitely a keeper! Read More

We love pulled pork. My family was surprised they liked the slaw on top of the pulled pork. Be sure to have extra BBQ sauce on hand in our case it is Sweet Baby Rays. This was an easy clean up with the Reynold's slow cooker bag. Read More

We loved the pulled pork and the easy clean up - the slow cooker liners are an awesome helper! I doubled the amount of barbecue sauce after reading other reviews and it turned out perfect.:) We didn't care for the slaw at all. The lime was extremely overpowering and not for us at all. We would've preferred a more traditional style of coleslaw. Read More

The pulled pork cooked wonderfully with the Reynolds slow cooker liner! It came out tender and juicy. We loved the mix of textures with the lime carrot slaw. Clean up was too easy. Will make this one again! Read More

OMG Yumm. My family LOVED this recipe! We followed the pork instructions exactly as written and the meat was super tender juicy and perfectly flavored. I loved the bite of the cumin. I adjusted the seasonings for the coleslaw to suit our tastes - I started with a 16-oz bag of slaw and used the sauce ingredients as written then tweaked from there. I added more honey salt and pepper but didn't increase the lime and I omitted jalapeno (spice wimp here). It was the PERFECT accompaniment. My husband and I oohed and ahhhed over this one. Juicy crunchy fresh and so tasty! I can't wait to make these again. Soon. Read More
