Slow Cooker Smoky Apricot Balsamic BBQ Pork

Had a big pork shoulder to put in the slow cooker a few weeks back so concocted this recipe and it turned out delicious! Wanted to get it out before I forgot what I put in!


1 3 lb. pork butt or shoulder, boneless

2 yellow onions sliced

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup¬†Tessemae’s BBQ sauce (these are just about the only bottled sauces I use, so delicious and actual all natural ingredients – buy at Whole Foods or online)

1 tsp. crushed garlic

1 tsp. liquid smoke

2  heaping TBSP no sugar added apricot jam or fruit spread РI got a really good one from Whole Foods

1 tsp. dried thyme

Salt and Pepper


Put sliced onions in the bottom of slow cooker

Liberally season pork with salt and pepper and sprinkle with thyme, then place on top of onions, fat side up

Mix all other ingredients together and pour over pork

Cook on low for 8 hours

Serve alongside veggies of choice
