Slow-Cooked Pork Shoulder With Low-Carb Coleslaw

low carb pulled pork and coleslaw

A delish and healthy dinner tonight: pulled pork, low-carb coleslaw, and as a nephew calls them, “trees.”

I picked up a pork shoulder a couple of weeks ago and last night I was in thee mood for some pulled pork.

And what goes best with pulled pork? Coleslaw.

Both low-carb recipes are compliments of the Atkins community. The pulled pork I found in my trusty Atkins cookbook. The coleslaw I stumbled upon online.

For my pulled pork, I don’t add BBQ sauce.  I’m sure that’s getting boos from BBQ fans. But I haven’t perfected a low-carb BBQ sauce yet. Great BBQ sauce requires too much sugar. Last thing I want is to jack up my insulin levels.

A note to all you Weight Watchers out there: My ‘slaw focuses on lowering the net carb count. You can easily make it more point friendly by substituting the regular mayo and sour cream with their low-fat kin.
