Slow Cooker Pulled Pork served with Mustard Slaw and Stir Fry Broccoli

It's been awhile since I've written a blog post, but as it is the final day of July and summer is rapidly coming to an end, I thought I’d share a delicious and simple summer meal with you.  I prepared this one yesterday with little effort, but BIG flavor!


Pulled Pork

3-4 pound bone-in Pork Butt

2 cans El Pato sauce (7 ¾ oz per can)

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons black pepper


1 bag of cole slaw mix (shredded cabbage, carrots)

½ cup diced sweet onion

½ cup diced green pepper

2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard

2 tablespoons greek yogurt (substitute paleo mayonnaise if you don’t eat dairy)

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

½ teaspoon honey

pinch of salt and black pepper                                    


1 pound broccoli, chopped into florets

1 sweet onion, sliced

1 green pepper, sliced

3 cups mushrooms, sliced

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon chili paste

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

pinch of salt and black pepper


Trim pork of excess fat, salt and pepper all sides and place into the slower cooker. Add the El Pato sauce to the slow cooker so the pork is covered. Set the slow cooker on low and cook for 8-10 hours.  To prepare the slaw, add the slaw mix, onion, and green pepper to a bowl. Place the mustard, greek yogurt, apple cider vinegar, and honey to a separate bowl and whisk together briskly to prepare the dressing for the slaw. Add the dressing to the slaw mix and mix together. Refrigerate until ready to serve and finish with some fresh ground pepper and a pinch of salt. Heat a skillet or wok to medium-high heat and add the coconut oil until it melts. Toss in the broccoli, onions, mushrooms, and peppers and cook, tossing occasionally for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic, chili paste, salt and pepper and continue cooking for 3-5 more minutes (I like the broccoli to be crunchy, so I don’t cook it for very long). When you are ready to serve the meal, remove the pork from the slow cooker and place it in a glass bowl. Shred the pork using a fork , plate the slaw and broccoli and you’re ready to roll!
