Simple Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork

With the Superbowl fast approaching I thought you might appreciate a chili alternative. While it’s always safe to serve fan favorites, changing things up will make your party more memorable. On game day your guests will be looking for something hearty to go with all the snacks and this is a great option.

This recipe is ridiculously easy and actually quite lean. Your house will smell amazing and you won’t need to spend all day in the kitchen..unless of course you’re whipping up a full buffet of fancy snacks to go with this!

The pork shreds beautifully and is so moist you’ll never know it hasn’t been slow cooking in a smoker all day. (Just don’t tell my husband that because his smoker is his new favorite toy and I promise you he would swear that he could tell the difference).

Other party benefits? You can make this in advance and reheat it on the day you’re serving it and you can easily double the recipe for a bigger crowd.
