Crock Pot Pork in a Blackberry BBQ Sauce

Sometimes, in the middle of the week, amidst all the hustle and bustle, dinner can get…well, a little boring. This is my antidote to that syndrome. Pork slow cooked in a sweet and tangy blackberry BBQ sauce always resets the mood. It puts a little zip in your step and helps finish the day with a bang. And, if I do say so myself, chores, homework and all the other night time rituals get done just a little quicker. A good meal that makes everyone happy can help you that way. 🙂

Crock Pot Pork in Blackberry Barbecue Sauce

If you are thinking that you need to go out and buy some fancy BBQ sauce, let me set you straight. The secret ingredient is blackberry jam. It is inspired from a recipe on the Smucker’s website. I added just a little brown sugar to make the sauce a little sweeter. It can be used in any recipe that calls for barbecue sauce and as a dipping sauce too. This homemade sauce is sure to become a family favorite.

Slow Cooker Pork in a Blackberry BBQ Sauce






  1. Oh my what a scrumptious recipe for pork! What a way to brighten up BBQ and give it another level of wonderful flavor.

  2. Interesting! That would be lovely to have a tangy twist to it! Thanks for sharing! That is great! Will definitely give it a try 🙂

  3. Yum! This sounds so interesting!! I love the berry twist. I’m breaking out my slow cooker a lot lately, and this sounds like the perfect thing to try. 🙂

  4. What a fun idea for pulled pork! Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  5. I never had pork and blackberries together but I do like pork with other berries like cranberries and raspberries!

  6. I am probably the only person on the planet who has never made a shredded pork dish – I will definitely be giving this one a try!

  7. Mmm this sounds so good! It makes me want to buy a slow cooker.

  8. Hmmm . . . Maybe a new twist on meatballs in BBQ sauce.

  9. I adore pulled pork, but have yet to try it with blackberries. Since blackberries are one of my favorite fruits, I just know I will love this!

  10. What a great strategy to use up the leftover jam! I want that for dinner.
