WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Applesauce
Are you looking for an easy pulled pork loin recipe? I've got one for you. When I made this slow cooker pulled pork recently it was a huge hit!
The older I get, the more I appreciate my slow cooker. And quick and easy recipes like this one for pulled pork with applesauce.
I use my slow cooker a couple of times a week and the shorter the ingredients list the better.
All you need is about ten minutes of prep for this simple 3-ingredient recipe.
I used an easy recipe from Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly Revised and Updated: 600 Healthy, Low-Fat Recipes for Your Slow Cooker , by Phyllis Good, 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 1-½ 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.
How Many Calories and WW Points in this Pulled Pork?
According to my calculations each serving of pork and sauce has 230 calories and:
6 *SmartPoints (Green plan)
6 *SmartPoints (Blue plan)
6 *SmartPoints (Purple plan)
6 *PointsPlus (Old plan)
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.
Give this slow cooker pulled pork loin recipe a try the next time you want dinner done easy. Enjoy!
