An easy and versatile recipe that is perfect on sandwiches, tacos, pizzas, or barbecu plates piled high with potato salad. Apple Butter Pulled Pork is full of flavor and can easily be made ahead of time. Since this is a slow cooker recipe please note that the cook time is long, but the actual active time required is only about 15 minutes.
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 - 2 pounds pork tenderloin roast
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup Musselman’s Apple Butter
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  1. Heat the oil over medium high in a large skillet. Sprinkle the pork on all sides with the salt, pepper, paprika, and cumin. Sear the pork in the skillet to form a nice crust; about 1-2 minutes per side.
  2. Place the seared pork in your slow cooker. Whisk together the apple butter, cider vinegar, and dijon mustard. Pour it over the pork. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.
  3. Shred the pork using two forks, carefully discarding any bones. Leave it in the sauce you made.
  4. Keep warm until serving; this can also be made a day ahead.
If you double the recipe you will probably need to add 1-2 hours to the cook time.
