Halloween can end up being a lot of work, am I right? Costumes to put together, flashlights to find, decorations to put up, candy to purchase. And dinner to make on top of all of that?
Here is a simple make-ahead solution so that you can enjoy your little devils a bit more!
Pulled Pork with Apples
In the summer I make this recipe with nectarines or peaches, as seen in the image here. For Fall, adding apples is just as scrumptious!
Here is the recipe:
1– 2 1/2 – 3 lb. pork loin roast or pork shoulder roast
2 cups Pomegranate-Chipotle BBQ Sauce or store bought gluten-free BBQ sauce (try Annie’s gluten-free version)
2 Fuji apples, peeled, pit removed, roughly chopped
4 oz. can green chilies, chopped
Place pork shoulder in roasting pan with lid, I love my Le Creuset. Pour BBQ sauce over top. Spread apple chunks over pork. Add chopped green chilies.
Place in center of oven at 325˚ for 60 minutes. Remove roast from over and turn over, ladle juices on top of meat. Return to oven for 40 minutes. Or, place in crock pot on low setting for 4 hours.
Remove roast from oven. With two forks, pull pork apart and stir pot to combine juices with sauce and meat. If desired, stir in 2 more tablespoons BBQ sauce before serving.
