Tender, juicy, succulent shreds of pork, paired with a crunchy, creamy cole slaw. It’s a match made in heaven! This Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork and Cole Slaw is incredibly delicious and surprisingly easy. The perfect summer, make-ahead meal that is sure to please them all.
Welcome back! What a fun and BUSY two weeks we’ve been having. Between family time, outings, errands, playing with friends, date nights, and of course, lots of cooking, we have certainly not been bored this summer. 😉 Charlie turned 8 weeks on Friday, and is becoming more and more aware of the world around him. William and James are the best big brothers, and love Charlie so much! They also seem to love each other more and more everyday, and are THE BEST of friends. (Yes, they have their moments, but for the most part, they get along incredibly well!) It warms my heart to see the joy in their eyes when they’re playing together.
Here are a few pictures from this weekend.

Smiling pictures of Charlie today! (8 weeks)Here’s a great summer recipe to put on your menu this month. The house will smell amazing and dinner will be cooking away, while you can be out enjoying the summer day. We absolutely LOVE this family favorite. I have been making and trying to perfect this (almost embarrassingly) easy recipe since our days in Atlanta, seven years ago. (Feel free to check out my first version of this Pulled Pork and Cole Slaw recipe on my old blog. It’s amazing to think that’s where we started a few years ago!)
Yes, I will confess that sometimes I can get carried away in the kitchen (Andrew is probably nodding ;)), and that sometimes my recipes are a bit involved. Well, this is not one of them, I promise! This Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork is super duper simple to toss together, and requires just a few ingredients. (It also freezes well!!!) Plus, you’ll love that it doesn’t have to be too exact, either. Just toss in a huge chunk of pork, squeeze in some sauce, add a little onion, garlic, salt and pepper, and spread it over the pork. Put on the lid, and turn it on. I mean, what’s not to LOVE about those directions. 🙂 Easy easy easy. I like to make the cole slaw the night before, so that the dressing and the flavors have a chance to really come together. I love using this Creamy Balsamic Dressing in my cole slaw. Or in a pinch, I’ll mix up a packet of Good Seasons Italian dressing, and use that instead.
(This is the pork just before I put the lid on. YUM!) Ingredients Instructions
Instead of spending the day slaving away in the kitchen, take a few minutes to toss this together in the morning, and when dinner time rolls around, you will have a delicious feast ready and waiting for you!
