Bourbon Pulled Pork



For the Glutton’s

Bourbon Pulled Pork

w/ Caramelized Onions, Apple & Brie

There isn’t much of a crazy story behind this: was wanting to do something in the slowcooker, pulled pork fit the bill, and then I added a few twists!  It was a great success, made amazing leftovers, everyone loved it!



  • 1 Pork Roast (used boneless leg, 1.38kg)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 cup bbq sauce
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • brie slices
  • 6 buns

Caramelized Onion

  • 1 white onion, sliced to ribbons
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt

Dry Rub:

  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 1.5 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tsp paprika



Turn slow cooker on to high.  Add vegetable oil.

Mix together dry rub ingredients.  Rub into pork. Massage that shit.  Place into slow cooker, fat side up.


Throw in chopped onion, bay leaves, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, bbq sauce, bourbon, apple cider vinegar & chicken broth.  Cook on low for 6 hours.  Shred pork with a fork, then return to that beautiful sauce.  Allow to soak up the sauce before serving.

Caramelize Onion:

Melt butter over medium heat.  Add onions & balsamic vinegar.  Cook on medium heat for 5-10 minutes, stirring only to avoid burning.


Assembly: Slice apple, slice brie, halve buns.  Butter both sides, pork on the bottom, brie, apple, caramelized onion, other bun. Enjoy!
