Whiskey Honey Pulled Pork
Pulled Pork is a dish that we LOVE in our house! Since we moved to the city, we’ve been hitting up the European Farmer’s Market and getting a pork roast every other week. We slow cook it and it usually lasts us another three or four meals, there are so many things you can use it for, and we love mixing up the flavors and dishes!
Pulled Pork is such an easy dish to throw together and you can either prep it in the morning and have it cook in the slow cooker all day, or you could even cook it in an Instant Pot which would bring the cook time down to about an hour. I love my Instant Pot because on the nights when I’m really craving something like pulled pork sandwiches or Pot Roast, I can actually make those dishes FAST!

Whiskey Honey Pulled Pork
- In a slow cooker, whisk together the honey, whiskey, apple cider, and beef broth. Combine the paprika, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a small dish then rub into the pork roast.
- Place the pork roast in the slow cooker, careful not to wash off the spice rub. Cover with the apple and onion slices, cover, and cook on low for 6 hours.
- Remove roast from the slow cooker, shred with two forks, then place back in the slow cooker for an additional 1 hour to soak up the juices.
- Serve on its own, or in sandwiches or tacos with your favorite fixings.
