Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Want to really impress your family, husband and or friends? This is an awesome and REALLY easy recipe that tastes like it was a ton of work! The quote from PW was “I would marry you all over again” after eating this for dinner. It is a slow cooker recipe, so it’s best for days when you don’t have a lot of time to make dinner at dinner time.

Get a McCormick spice pack for Pulled Pork. They are usually in like the rice and soup aisle. It will say “slow cooker” on the front.

Get a pork shoulder with the bone still in. The back of the spice pack calls for a slightly different cut of pork, but I think the shoulder with the bone is less fatty and has great flavor.

Follow the directions on the packet, but double the amount of vinegar to 1/2 cup.

After about 6 hours in the slow cooker, shred the pork using two forks. It should come apart very easily.

I turned off the slow cooker at this point because we were headed to swim lessons and then turned it back on high an hour later for about another hour. Shreading the meat and letting it soak for awhile gets the flavor into every bite and I think letting it cool and then heat back up helps as well.

Serve with Hawaiian brand rolls. They are a little sweeter and really bring out the flavor in the pork. Potato salad, baked beans and chips are awesome sides. Steamed brocoli with a little parmesan cheese and grilled corn with Old Bay seasoning are some healthier alternatives.

I also used the leftover pork inside a quesadilla and it was AMAZING! A little sour cream and or guac make it a little slice of Heaven. Bon appetite!
