Savoury Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker

I love to cook, but sometimes it is hard to find the time. Staying on track for me means I always know what the next meal is, and prep for it in advance. If not, I get totally flustered and decide to go out for dinner! Never a wise choice! 

Although many people associate slow cookers with winter soups and stews (which I adore on a cold snowy day), they are also perfect for hot, busy summer days when you don’t want to turn on the oven and you dont have time to light up the BBQ. 

Last week pork shoulder was sale and I immediately thought about pulled pork! Although I won’t eat it on a bun anymore, it is totally amazing on homemade corn tortillas, on salad or alone with some mashed potatoes!! 

There are many great recipes out there, and I usually make my own BBQ sauce for pulled pork, but this time I felt like something a little more savoury. I was really happy with this rub. It made flavourful and melt in your mouth pulled pork that only gets better with more time in the slow cooker! 

Ingredients

  • 3 lb pork shoulder
  • 2 tbsp paprika 
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp onion power
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar + 1/2 water for bottom of the crock pot 


Easiest recipe ever! Put vinegar and water at the bottom of slow cooker. Roll the entire pork shoulder (or any other cut of pork) in the dry rub until it is completely covered. Carefully place in slow cooker and set on low for 10-12 hours. 


After it’s cooked, it will shred beautifully! I cooked mine on high for another 30 minutes after shredded to soak some of the delicious juices into the pork! 



We made pulled pork tacos for dinner, pulled pork baked potatoes for lunch and froze the rest! Talk about getting your money’s worth 😁
