It's hard to beat a pork shoulder for flavor and tenderness, and it's one of my family's favorite pork cuts. This dish is made with a boneless pork shoulder, slow cooked to perfection with a tangy mixture of apple jelly and coarsely ground mustard. Serve this delicious slow cooked pork shoulder with mashed potatoes or pile on soft buns for fabulous sandwiches.

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours

Yield: Serves 6 to 8


  • 2 large onions, halved, sliced
  • 1 boneless pork shoulder roast
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) apple jelly
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard


Arrange onion slices in the bottom of a large slow cooker. Wash the roast and pat dry; leave it in its netting and place on the onions. Combine remaining ingredients in a cup; pour over the roast. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 hours. Turn to LOW and cook for 6 to 8 hours longer.
Serves 6 to 8.

Great flavor, a bit dry, Member mwwhome

When we served it, we served it with the onions on top, which added a ton of flavor (this is where the flavor goes!). The meat was a bit dry, though, and needed the juice on top of it. Next time, will cook for less time...not sure if that will fix it..
