Savory Blackberry Recipe For Slow Cooker Pulled Pork With Blackberries

Berry Tempting: Slow Cooker Blackberry Pulled Pork

This year, I haven't been able to resist making savory berry recipes: first strawberry spaghetti, then cherry-stuffed tenderloin and blueberry-glazed ribs. And, in my desire to incorporate blackberries into an entrée, I came up with this recipe for pulled pork sandwiches using a blackberry purée. Not only do the ingredients make this dish perfect for the Summer season, but it won't heat up your kitchen because it's cooked over low heat in a slow cooker. Over the course of eight hours, blackberries, hot sauce, ketchup, vinegar, and garlic meld together to become a sweet and tangy condiment that not only highlights the pork roast's natural flavor, but is less aggressively syrupy than traditional barbecue sauce. If you're interested in the recipe, read more.

Soft sandwich buns, split, for serving

  4. Add the pork back into the slow cooker and toss to coat in sauce. Serve inside split sandwich buns, along with pickles on the side.

cbmom, glad to hear you enjoyed it! You could try skipping the sieve, but I think the seeds would make it a little on the crunchy side. You could also use another berry altogether, like blueberries — I bet they'd be great, too.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was excellent. My husband loved it and my 6 year old daughter ate it up! Pureeing the blackberries and putting the mixture through a sieve is time consuming (but perhaps I used too fine a sieve?) but will definitely make again.

Sundaydrive, I bet it'd be great with pulled chicken. If you wind up making it, do keep us posted on how it goes!

Outstanding! I will make. A couple of days ago I made some Chile Amarillo - using my Lemon Boy (yellow) tomatoes oven roasted, grilled Vidalias, Spanish peppers and spices in Cuisinart then dumped in crockpot with pork. I was quite please since it was done by the seat of my pants and I'm pretty much a recipe kinda cook. Hubby was fat and happy!

I don't eat pork, but the sauce sounds amazing! I would think this would also work with pulled chicken though, right?
