Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Bourbon-Peach Barbecue Sauce

Summer months are just meant for barbecue. And not just barbecued foods on the grill; your slow cooker can make some mean pulled pork for you as well! This recipe is perfect for a crowd and is great on a kaiser bun with some coleslaw! I found this recipe in my Cooking Light magazine, made it over the weekend, and enjoyed it during the week for a quick meal to assemble. I also froze half of the pork to bring to the beach for my extended family to enjoy and it held up great! I changed the recipe a bit because I ended up with a 5.5 pound pork shoulder so I altered the amounts to compensate for that. Ingredients: 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1 (5 1/2-pound) bone-in pork shoulder roast (Boston butt), trimmed 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 cup unsalted chicken stock 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar 2/3 cup molasses 1/4 cup lower-sodium soy sauce 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper 1 8 oz jar peach preserves 2 cups vertically sliced onion 8 garlic cloves, roughly chopped 1/2 cup bourbon 3 tablespoons cold water 1 tablespoons … Continue reading

The cooperative was founded in 1988 and markets its products in all 50 states as well as Canada and Japan.  Organic Valley promotes organic agricultural methods, with each participating farm certified as organic by the National Organic Program. A problem I still run into when cooking/baking is I rarely read the directions all the way though before starting (a huge no no). So I made a completely different pie crust by accident because I got confused as to where the sugar and egg was supposed to go in the original recipe. Luckily it turned out fine (whew!) but for the original recipe, be sure to head over to the Organic Valley website. Ingredients: CRUST: 4 cups organic, all-purpose flour 1 ½ cups Organic Valley Salted Butter, cut into ½-inch … Continue reading
