All that juice running down and the cheese just oozing out!

Oh, and then the southwest pepper-corn slaw! So good, and NO mayo!

We despise mayo around here. The stuff makes me want to gag. No mayo and any and all tea, can’t handle either.

I know, that is so weird.

Who does not like mayo and tea! Well, me. Never have and I am 99 percent positive I never will.

So I love using my crockpot in the summer because the food just cooks long and slow all day on Sunday while you’re out playing in the hopefully warm and sunny weather. Then dinner’s all ready to go when you finally decide to EAT!

Pretty perfect!

And so incredibly easy! Hallelujah!

Cheesy Crockpot Cajun Pulled Pork with Southwest Pepper-Corn Slaw | halfbakedharvest.comPlus, this is probably the best pulled pork I have every had.

I mean it’s Cajun so it has that going for it, but really it is just so good. Cooked in tons of Cajun spices and beer. Yes, beer! Makes the pork so moist and flavorful! Plus, it is pretty and fun and perfect for summer BBQ’s!Cheesy Crockpot Cajun Pulled Pork with Southwest Pepper-Corn Slaw |

Cajun Pulled Pork

  • 1 1/2 cups beer
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon creole seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 - 3 pound to 4 boneless pork shoulder roast
  • 2 links andouille sausage
  • 1 avocado, pureed or finely mashed
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 8 ciabatta buns sliced + toasted

Southwest Pepper-Corn Slaw

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 red pepper sliced thin
  • 1 orange pepper sliced thin
  • 1 poblano sliced thin
  • 1 cup fresh corn
  • 4 green onions chopped


  • Whisk the beer, vinegar, ketchup, 1/4 cup of the spicy brown mustard, the molasses and 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a crockpot.
  • Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar, cajun seasoning, creole seasoning, paprika and a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. Rub the pork all over with the seasonings. Once hot, add pork and sear on all sides until golden brown (about 2 minutes per side).
  • Add pork to the crockpot and sprinkle with any remaining seasonings and or dripping from the pan. Add the sausage and cover and cook on low, 8 hours.
  • Remove the pork and sausage and set aside to cool slightly. Skim off the excess fat from the cooking liquid, then strain into a large skillet and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by one-third, about 10 minutes.
  • While the sauce cooks combine the purred avocado, lemon juice and remain 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard. Stir until combined and set aside.
  • Preheat the broiler.
  • Shred the pork with a fork and coarsely chop the sausage. Toss the pork and sausage with the sauce. Spread a little of the spicy avocado crema on the bottom of the toasted ciabatta bun, then top with the pork and a few slices of cheddar cheese. Place under the broiler for 30 seconds to melt the cheese. Remove and top with the south west slaw and the top half of the bun.
  • To make the southwest pepper slaw, puree the avocado, lemon juice, olive and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (if it seems thick add a tablespoon of water or beer at time to thin). Toss with the corn, red pepper, orange pepper, poblano and chopped green onions. Serve with the cajun pulled pork.

  1. I could only find a bone in pork shoulder. Do I need to allow additional cook time?
    Also, Should the liquid in the crockpot cover the meat? It is about 3/4 covered…

    1. Hey there,
      I’ve never tried this recipe with bone in shoulder, but yes I would increase your cook time. All of the meat does not need to be covered, it will also release liquid as it cooks. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  2. I have the pork thawing and found this recipe. No mayo! Yess! My family likes their salads (potato and coleslaw) swimming in it and I do not. I am making this tomorrow. 😁 Thank you!

    1. Hey Judy,
      Happy Sunday! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for making it! xxTieghan

    I’m new to HBH but this dish is by far my favorite and I’m not a big meat eater. My son’s friend stopped by just as I was finishing up and they both couldn’t get enough of the savory dish. I can’t wait to try this on my daughter’s family.

    1. Hi Karina,
      I have not tested this in the instant pot but I would do high pressure for 40 minutes. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    Converted into an instant pot recipe for the the pork & was so delicious. I cut the pork into pieces, put on the rub & browned with the sauté button. Added all the liquid ingredients & set to manual for 60 minutes. Did natural release. Took pork out, shredded & reduced the sauce after skimming fat & then put shredded pork back into the pot. Absolutely incredible & ✅ in little over an hour! Thanks for an amazing recipe, as always!!
