For BBQ Sauce

  • 2 tbsp Ghee
  • 24 oz Tomatoes (strained)
  • 6 oz Tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup Apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/3 cup Blackstrap molasses
  • 2 tbsp Chipotle chili powder
  • 1 tbsp Onion powder
  • 1 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp Ground mustard
  • 1 tsp Salt

For Pulled Pork

  • 3-4 lb Pork shoulder (trimmed of excess fat)
  • 1 yellow onion (sliced thin)
  • Salt (to taste)

Cole Slaw

  • 1 Package pre-made coleslaw vegetables
  • 1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Celery seed


  1. BBQ Sauce: Add the ghee to a pot over medium heat. Stir until melted. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Remove from the burner and set aside to cool.
  2. Pulled Pork: Pour half the BBQ sauce in the bottom of the slow cooker. Sprinkle the sliced onion on top of the sauce. Place the pork shoulder on top of the onions. Season with salt. Pour the remaining BBQ sauce over the pork. Secure the lid and cook for 8 hours on low. Once the pork is done cooking, use a fork to shred the meat.
  3. Coleslaw: In a large bowl whisk together the apple cider vinegar, honey, olive oil, salt, garlic powder, and celery seed. Mix in the coleslaw vegetables.
  4. Serve the pulled pork with the coleslaw and enjoy!
