Crock Pot Pulled Pork with Apricot Preserves

34

There's a "secret" ingredient in this Crock Pot pulled pork that adds delicious, subtle flavor! The sweet and savory combination of apricot preserves, apple cider vinegar, onion, and a zesty bbq dry rub yields tender, juicy, succulent slow cooked pork shoulder, Boston butt, pork butt, or picnic ham. Serve the shredded meat on sandwich buns, in tacos, on nachos, over rice, on salad, or alongside coleslaw, pickles, collard greens, potato wedges, and cornbread!
