For the pulled pork:

  • 2-3 pound pork shoulder roast
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup healthy all natural barbecue sauce (use your favourite barbecue sauce or make your own - I've linked my favourite healthy homemade barbecue sauce recipe in the blog post above!)

For the coleslaw:

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 5 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons liquid honey
  • 1 medium green cabbage shredded
  • 3 large carrots shredded
  • 1 medium red onion thinly sliced

For the sandwiches

  • 8-10 sandwich rolls
  • condiments of your choice (mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup or barbecue sauce)


  • Add the pork roast, apple juice and salt and pepper to the slow cooker on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 7-8 hours.
  • After the time has passed, shred the pork with two forks and add the barbecue sauce, turning the heat to low or the warm setting and replace the lid on the slow cooker for 15 minutes.
  • Add the vinegar, mustard, mayonnaise and honey to a mason jar and shake very well until the dressing is smooth.
  • Add the cabbage, carrots and red onions to a large bowl and pour the dressing over top, tossing well to coat.
  • Assemble the sandwiches on the sandwich rolls with a serving of pulled pork, a serving of coleslaw and the condiments of your choice.



The coleslaw is best enjoyed within 24 hours, but the pulled pork keeps well in the fridge for up to 3 days.
