- Trim the pork shoulder of excess fat and place it in a slow cooker.
- Whisk together the chicken broth, honey, balsamic, olive oil, and Dijon with the garlic, onion, chili powder, and thyme. Pour over the pork.
- Cook on low for 8 hours.
- Place the pork on a cutting board, shred it with two forks, and pile it into a large bowl.
- Pour the cooking liquid from the slow cooker into a saucepan over medium-high heat. Combine the cornstarch with 2 Tbsp water and whisk it into the cooking liquid. Bring to a low boil, whisking until the sauce thickens, 3-5 minutes.
