Summer is fast approaching, which means it’s time to start enjoying dinner outside! This pulled pork recipe is great because it takes very little effort but you still get all of that delicious summertime flavor. The coleslaw adds the perfect amount of tang and crunch. The toasted brioche bun is buttery and crispy and the pulled pork is tender and bursting with flavor.

For a true “set it and forget it” recipe you can make this in a slow cooker. Set on low, add all of the ingredients, and cook for 8 hours.

Serving Size: 4 servings

Time to make: 5 hours

Special Equipment: Slow Cooker or Dutch Oven

  • Pulled Pork
  • 3-4 lbs pork shoulder, bone in

  • 1 yellow onion, diced

  • 3 tbsp tomato paste

  • 1 cup apple juice

  • 1/2 cup ketchup

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 4 Brioche buns

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • BBQ sauce (optional condiment for sandwich)

  • Coleslaw
  • 4 cups green cabbage, shredded

  • 1 cup yellow onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 cups carrot, shredded

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar

  • 1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt


  • Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
  • Season pork generously with salt and pepper. You may have to break down the leg a bit, depending on how large your dutch oven is.
  • In a mixing bowl add onions, tomato paste, apple juice, ketchup, vinegar, mustard, chili powder and cumin. Stir until combined.
  • Place pork in the dutch oven and cover with sauce mixture. Place in the oven with the lid on and cook for 4-5 hours, checking periodically to flip the leg meat.
  • Once the meat is fork tender remove from oven and set on the stove top to cool before shredding.
  • While the pork is cooling prepare the coleslaw. Add mayo, sugar, lemon juice, vinegar, pepper and salt to a large bowl and mix well. Add cabbage, carrots and onions then mix well again. Set in fridge until ready to use.
  • Remove pork from the sauce and shred into small bite sized pieces. Discard the bones and cartilage (you can keep this for stock if you’d like). Mix the pulled pork with the sauce.
  • Before you are ready to serve, heat butter in a pan over medium heat. Once butter is melted add your buns and toast until they are golden brown.
  • Assemble your sandwich and enjoy! I like to put the coleslaw in my sandwich, but it makes for a delicious side as well.
