I've also found that making slow cooker meals on the weekend, when I am able to monitor the cooking, has also turned out to be a good option. Just because you're making the meals on the weekend doesn't mean you have to cook the meals on the weekend! A few weeks ago I threw this in the crockpot on a Sunday morning and by lunchtime, my pork was falling off the bone. Rather than eating it that evening, I stuck half in the freezer for a later date and put the other half in a tupperware container in the fridge.
kale chips baked away in the oven. The tabbouleh was courtesy of Erin and Justin (thanks guys!). A delicious meal ready in minutes. There are few things better!! As for the pulled pork, we really liked it! It was tender, juicy, and full of flavor, though I definitely recommend serving it with BBQ sauce, the messier the better! My favorite pulled pork is still the balsamic version, but this one is a bit more 'classic' and likely more universally appealing!

Slow Cooker Whiskey Pulled Pork
from What's For Dinner
-1 (3-4 lb) pork shoulder
-3 medium onions, chopped
-1 cup ketchup
-1/4 cup white vinegar
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-1 tbsp brown sugar
-1 tbsp onion powder
-1 tbsp garlic powder
-1/4 cup soy sauce
-2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
-1/3 cup whiskey or bourbon
-2 tbsp molasses
-1/2 cup chicken broth
-1 tbsp kosher salt, for salting the meat
1. In the bottom of the slow cooker, place the chopped onions.
2. Salt all sides of the pork shoulder before placing it on top of the onions. In a separate bowl, mix together remaining ingredients, with the exception of the broth (ketchup through molasses). Pour over the pork shoulder.
3. Pour the broth into the slow cooker without pouring it over the pork. Cook on low for 5 hours. Remove the meat from the bone if needed, shredded, and return to the slow cooker to cook for an additional hour, on high.
4. Serve meat on buns with bbq sauce, if desired.
