Skinny on Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Loin with Applesauce
All you need is about ten minutes of prep for this simple 3-ingredient simple slow cooker pulled pork loin recipe.
I used an easy slow cooker pulled pork loin with applesauce recipe from Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly Revised & Updated: 600 Healthy, Low-Fat Recipes for Your Slow Cooker to make these delicious pulled pork sandwiches.
Okay, you do have to shred the meat when it’s done, which takes a few more minutes. But it is so worth the effort, even for a lazy cook like me.
The original recipe calls for 3 pounds of pork, which makes 12 servings. So I cut the recipe in half. I used a 1-1/2 pound pork loin roast I had in the freezer, half the amount of applesauce and barbecue sauce and a smaller crock pot. It turned out moist, tender and delicious.
I’m giving the nutritional and Points for the pulled pork, not the sandwich, since there will be a lot of variation depending on what type of bun and/or coleslaw you use. According to my calculations each serving of pork and sauce has 230 calories and *6 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
