Servings: 4, with leftover pork for 4 to 6
Throw a few things in the slow cooker in the morning and come home to fork-tender pork simmering in a rich, sweet sauce. Serve the relish alongside or use it as a topping for pulled pork sandwiches.
In a small bowl, mix the avocados, jalapeños, vinegar, and salt to taste. Serve with the pork.

I love crockpot recipes for their simplicity. But the reviewer that mentioned the flavors were muted is right on these things. I have started holding back 1/4th of some of the brightening flavors such as balsamic to be added at the end after cooking. I would probably add a couple of whole jalapenos to the pot too since I like a bit of zing. An alternative is to make it as stated and add 2 TBS balsamic when combining the juices at the very end. You can always just add a little hot sauce on mine/yours
This is my go-to pulled pork dish. I think that the pork could use a touch of zing, but I recognize that few spices can survive 8 hours in the slow cooker. That said, don't let my implied negativity on the pork affect your judgement. The avocado relish is splendid and provides a great counterbalance to the relatively bland pork. My family loves this dish with rolls or simply served over white rice.
Honestly, I thought this lacked flavor. The meat cooked perfectly though. Pulling the pork was very easy and I used the left overs for tacos.
