Slow Cooker Apricot Shredded Pork
This Slow Cooker Apricot Shredded Pork recipe is so simple that you can assemble easily in the morning with minimal work.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 4-6


  • (small) 2 Sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • (1 C or a 12 oz jar) Apricot Preserves
  • (1/2 C) Light brown sugar, packed
  • (1/2 C) BBQ Sauce, that is more bold and spicy
  • (2 TB) Worcestershire sauce
  • (1/4 C) Apple cider vinegar
  • (1/2 tsp) Red pepper flakes
  • (4 lbs) Pork Loin Boneless - Whole
  • (1/2 C) Cold water
  • (2 TB) Cornstarch
  • (1 tsp) Fresh grated ginger
  • (to taste) Coarse salt/ ground black or white pepper
  • Rolls or buns


You can mix all the first step ingredients in a bowl then pour over the uncooked meat. You can even omit this step and mix it all in the crock, then add the meat and sliced onions.

Don’t want to slice the onions in the morning? Then slice them the night before and place them in a container. I have made this with both a pork roast and pork tenderloin. Both turned out very well!
