Bourbon Slow cooked Pulled Pork

The last pulled pork recipe I made I added pineapple to the mix to add some sweetness, but Austin and I didn't enjoy the chunks as much and it was little too sweet.
This time it was delicious.



  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, or to taste

I threw all of the ingredients in the slow cooker along with 3 lbs of pork shoulder cut into 2 inch chunks and let it do it's thing for 8 hours.
Threw together some quick slaw and some whole wheat buns and had an amazing dinner out under our avocado tree in the warm afternoon breeze.

Enjoy and until next time~
