Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Coleslaw

Updated: Jun 2, 2020

Love all things BBQ!

Pulled Pork is tender and has a soft bite to it! The spicy and sweet bbq sauce recipe that goes with this is a great compliment to the tender pork! The freshness of the coleslaw is made with half greek yogurt, half mayo and instead of sugar, my alternative was agave sweetener.

It is the perfect party food for a crowd! Using a slow cooker for this recipe makes it so much more easier. You just let the pot do the cooking and the meat will fall off the bone after 8 hours. Pull it apart and place it back in the slow cooker with some of its juices and it will keep warm throughout the whole party! Keep the bbq sauce on the side and allow people to serve as they please.

It will be a huge hit!
