Bourbon BBQ Pulled Pork Totchos

Bourbon BBQ Pulled Pork Totchos


  • 3-4 lbs boneless pork butt
  • 1 onion (medium size)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 1 bottle KC Masterpiece® Kentucky Bourbon Barbecue Sauce®
  • 2 cups cole slaw mix
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2.5 lbs tater tots
  • 1.5 cups Monterey jack cheese
  • cilantro (for garnish)


  1. Cube the pork, dice the onion and mince 3 of the garlic cloves. Place ingredients in a slow cooker and pour in the bourbon and barbecue sauce. (Option: you can substitute the bourbon with beer, chicken stock, or water.)


  1. Cook the pork on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
  2. For the slaw: using a large mixing bowl, combine the slaw mix, olive oil, vinegar, sugar and remaining garlic clove. Toss until evenly coated. Cover and place in the fridge until ready to serve.
  3. Prepare tater tots according to package instructions. When they’re done, sprinkle cheese on top and place in the oven for about a minute to let the cheese melt.
  4. Plate the tater tots with the pork and slaw. Garnish with cilantro. Serve immediately.
