Pork loin is smothered in a finger-licking apple bourbon sauce and slow cooked to juicy perfection.  Less than 5 minutes of prep time!

We all love our slow cookers, especially this time of year.  Sometimes slow cooker recipes can be pretty involved though, even before you can turn the slow cooker on!  Most of the time I don’t mind that, but some mornings, I just don’t have the patience, you know?

So how would you like to have a slow cooker meal that takes about 30 seconds to prep?  That’s what you can get with Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces!

Just add your meat of choice to the slow cooker, pour the sauce over the meat, cover and cook.  Done!  Even on your busiest morning, you can get dinner started!

Usually in the mornings, I’m pretty much a zombie until I’ve had my tea (or several cups of tea), so getting started on a complicated meal is generally out of the question… this makes a great easy to use alternative!  Campbell’s is right when they say, “Campbells – Made for Real, Real Life” 🙂  Minimal ingredients, short prep time, and a delicious meal!

When I have pulled pork sandwiches, I almost always need to have a slaw with it… it’s just how I grew up.  To highlight the apple flavors in the pork, I thought a simple apple fennel slaw would be perfect!

I went for a more rustic look with the slaw, because first of all, I don’t have a mandolin or the knife skills to slice paper thin perfect slices, and second of all, this was a weeknight meal, no need to be fussy 🙂

Crisp, cool, refreshing, sweet with a tang, this slaw is just awesome!

I served my pulled pork on a soft pretzel bun, but you could easily use Hawaiian buns, onion buns, or even slider buns for an awesome game day treat!

The Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce is delicious as-is, but for a little extra kick, after you shred the pork, stir in a sprinkle of brown sugar and splash of apple cider vinegar and give it a good mix.  WOW! 😀

  1. hahaha, zombie. you’re crazy. Sandwiches and apple bourbon sauce are gonna make my next weekend tastier.

  2. I still don’t have a slow cooker, but I want one soon after seeing all the slow cooker recipes around. I love the depth of flavors in this recipe, and not only are your pictures mouthwatering, they do a beautiful job at showing the steps of the cooking process. Happy FF, and I hope yo uh ave a wonderful weekend. And, keep enjoying some more fresh apples before they’re gone!

  3. Reading this in New Orleans where bourbon flows freely! Love it’s addition for fall with the brilliant Apple salw.

  4. I have always shied away from using fennel, but you make it look irresistible. I love those Campbell’s sauces for a quick recipe, and your slaw really takes it to the next level!

  5. I love this slow cooker sauce from campbell’s! I used this same one last year to make a delicious cranberry apple bourbon pork loin roast- so good! This pulled pork looks amazing! 🙂

  6. That sandwich looks incredible – definitely looking forward to trying these new slow cooker sauces.

  7. YUM! I love these flavors! The Apple Fennel Slaw is brilliant!

  8. These look delicious!! They are definitely on my “must make” list for this fall! Great photos too.

  9. Oh man these would be gone in a flash at my house. They look so amazing! I am really loving that slaw too!

  10. Damn, this is one amazing pulled pork sandwich! I should not have passed up on that pork loin at the grocery store the other day! Now, fennel on the other hand… I have tried to bring myself to like it but I just cannot get past that licorice taste, haha. However, it is a slaw that my husband would actually eat so we have that! It just looks so good.

    • Thanks so much Kacey!! Fennel definitely has a unique taste lol… my husband doesn’t really like it either, so we’ve made the slaw and just swapped the fennel for some thinly sliced red onions (and reduce the amount to your tastes) 🙂

  11. That’s a good looking sandwich you got there.
