I’m one of those people who equally uses her slow cooker in the summer and winter. In fact in the summer it almost makes even more sense because who wants to heat up the whole house? I personally like my house as cold as a freezer so running the oven all day is a big fat no-no for me. That’s why when the awesome folks over at the Ohio Pork Council and the Ohio Soybean Council asked me make a delicious slow cooker pork dish I couldn’t turn them down! I have worked with them before and made pork tenderloin with pineapple salsa and pork tenderloin with blackberry mint sauce. Those recipes were HUGE hits and I have no doubt this one won’t be as well.

PLUS when you use your slow cooker you get to proclaim” set it and forget it!” as you slam your lid down. Ok well maybe lets not slam the lid down. That could cause cracking or other random slow cooker injury. Lets not injure our slow cookers – ok?

For this recipe I used a 5 pound bone-in pork shoulder and it turned out to be the perfect cut of meat. I personally like using bone-in because it keeps the meat super flavorful and the bone is really easy to remove after the meat becomes tender. PLUS I threw in a little honey mustard flavor because who doesn’t love honey mustard?

No, I’m serious. Who doesn’t love honey mustard? It’s the perfect combination of sweet and savory and totally perfect on anything. This dish is also perfect for crazy weeknight back to school dinner rushes. Prep it before you leave, let it cook all day, shred when you get home and then devour over rice, in tacos or on soft pillowy rolls. You can use this pulled pork in just about any way you dream. In fact I used the leftovers to make delicious corn tortilla tacos topped with creamy cole slaw.

Trust me – you want to make this slow cooker honey mustard pulled pork ASAP!

Yes! I love yelling "set it and forget it" . . .and then placing the lid down very gently ;)

Honey mustard is one of my favorite condiments for pulled pork, so I love that you actually (slow) cooked those flavors right into the pork!
