Default Does anyone have a recipe for slow cooker bourbon pulled pork from scratch?

Does anyone have a recipe for slow cooker bourbon pulled pork from scratch? That is, a recipe with no bottled BBQ sauce or ketchup. I had one, once, using Pork shoulder, garlic and pepper rub, maybe cup bourbon, and a wee bit of tomato paste but I cant find it...

Recipe adapted from Nigella Lawson


Ingredients
2 lb. pork shoulder
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup bourbon
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
1 large onion, sliced

Directions
1.Season the pork with salt and pepper. Brown the pork on all sides and
place in slow cooker.
2.Scatter the sliced onions around the slow cooker.
3.In a large bowl, mix the dark brown sugar, bourbon, soy sauce, Dijon
mustard, and ketchup. Pour over the pork and onion mixture.
4.Set the slow cooker to low and cook the pork mixture for 8 hours.
5.At the end of 8 hours, remove the pork let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
6.Using an immersion blender, blend the onions and the sauce to a smooth
mixture. If you don't have an immersion blender, use your blender - it will
be just fine.
7.Shred the pork and mix some of the sauce with the shredded pork. Serve
with extra sauce if requested.

Try Cat Cora's recipe. It doesn't call for tomato paste, but the rest
seems to fit your criteria. Add a tablespoon or so of tomato paste,
if you think it made a difference.

Personally, I have two favorite ways to slow cook a pork
butt/shoulder. One is with beer and the other is apple juice (or use
apple cider, if it's the season)... with minimal other seasonings.
I've decided that I don't like the rubs that call for brown sugar and
powdered chili. However, I think the brown sugar in Cat Cora's recipe
is probably there to offset the bourbon, so I'd try it as written
first and vary it if I liked the result enough to try it again.

Good luck!

I would like to oven barbeque some chicken next weekend and I want to make a
bourbon bbq sauce, homemade, not store bought. I plan to stop by the ABC
store (liquor store) this week to see if they sell one of those tiny
"airline bottles" of 1-2 oz of bourbon. That's all I need as I don't drink
it for pleasure.

I've had commercial sauce with that added and I do like it.

I have a slightly larger bottle of rum. I like to soak raisins in rum
before I use them. Rum balls are really good, but I don't make them
very often and only think of it during the holiday season. I like
rum, but I don't drink it at home - so that bottle (a pint?) has
lasted quite a long time.

Jack Daniel's BBQ sauce? Can't say I've ever purchased it and if I've
eaten it, the bourbon flavor was so faint that I didn't even notice
it.

It's not too bad, but there are store-brand bourbon peppercorn sauces
for grilling that do a far tastier job.

Bourbon peppercorn sounds interesting - is it similar to the bourbon
peppercorn pan sauces that are on the internet?

This one has a fairly strong bourbon taste, but not so much for one to
be afraid of using it.

Safeway also has their own store brand.

It's quite a bit stronger to my taste buds, but you can certainly adjust
or sweeten with a bit of honey.

I also make a pan sauce using bourbon, shallots and green peppercorns,
but that's more to top off a filet that's already been grilled in spices.

Thanks for the link! I'm not big on marinades - so I don't ever look
in that section, but I'll make a note to self and see if it's on the
shelf here (or not).

You're welcome.

Try some in a teaspoon first and see if it's stronger than you like, as
it is stronger than a home made bourbon pan sauce for sure.

I've had the JD bbq sauce before and it's not bad. I might just cheat....buy
that and add just a little more bourbon to it.

As far as what commercial kind I've tried before, it was (believe it or not)
in the "Hungry Man" frozen dinners. They sell a steak in boubon sauce and
also chicken with bourbon sauce. I like that taste.
