Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Bourbon-Peach Barbecue Sauce


So, I looked up from the craziness of life and realized, “Oops…summer is almost over!” This means that the lazy days of outdoor barbecues, freshly prepared summer salads, and picnic lunches are slowly giving way to food blog posts featuring hefty tailgate snacks, school lunch ideas, and super-quick weeknight dinner recipes.

However, one item that segues nicely from season to season is the slow cooker. And, what better way to use the slow cooker than to make flavorful and extremely tender pulled pork! The sweet and spicy bourbon-peach barbecue sauce keeps the summer flavors around a little longer while the slow cooker gives you more time outside to enjoy these last few summer weeks. As an added bonus, this recipe is from Cooking Light, so the pork and the sauce are calorie-friendly!

Find the recipe here or in the June 2014 issue of Cooking Light.

    I am getting a couple cases of peaches in two days and was thinking peach bourbon ice cream! I may need to add this to the list!

    Bourbon peach barbecue sauce!? Hello!

    My slow cooker hasn’t been put away ever since I inherited it 2 winters ago. It’s an all weather contraption. I’d say pulled pork is all weather too. This looks magnificent. How did you serve it?

    This sounds incredible. I love making pulled pork in my slow cooker and barbecue sauce variations are always worth trying.

    I want some of that sauce – sounds perfect at any time of year – if only peaches were around longer (but then we wouldn’t love them when they are in season as we do)

    Sure looks delicious, Yummy AND, it just happens to be Bourbon Month here in the states. I’ll have to ask Marion to save that Cooking Light issue for me. She has a tendency to hoard it, lol…Thank for sharing…

    This looks amazing – especially the sauce! Peaches and bourbon sounds like a killer combo!

    p.s. I hope you’re doing well! Also, I’ve never checked out your about page (well, until today) – I didn’t know you were an attorney (!) I just finished law school in June – it’s always nice to meet another here in food blog-land πŸ˜€
