The best part is that it's really versatile . . . Or maybe the best part is that it's so easy . . . Or maybe that it freezes well . . . Or maybe that Asher ate almost his whole sandwich without complaining once . . . Or maybe I can't decide what the best part is!
It's just a great recipe. I've even used frozen chicken breast in place of the pork and it was just as delicious.
Crockpot Pulled Pork (original recipe can be found here)
2 1/2-3 1/2 lb. boneless pork shoulder or pork butt
1 1/2 Tbls. paprika
1/2 Tbls. garlic powder
1/2 Tbls. ground mustard
1 Tbls. kosher salt
2 Tbls. brown sugar
1. Mix together all ingredients except for pork.
2. Place pork in crockpot and rub seasoning all over it. Sprinkle on any remaining seasoning.
3. Cook on high 4-6 hours, or on low 8-10 hours.
4. Shred before eating. Serve on buns.
It's so easy to shred - it almost falls apart on its own
Barbecue sauce and shredded cheddar cheese
Wow, look how much I love it! ;)
*Sprinkle on some cheese
*Drizzle with barbecue sauce
*Top with coleslaw (totally yummy)
*Serve on top of baked potatoes instead of buns with sour cream, shredded cheese, and barbecue sauce.
Honestly, this is such an easy meal - I've made it for birthday parties, moving days, weeknights, etc. As I said, it even freezes well! And, you can adjust the seasonings to your liking. Sometimes after I've shredded it I decide it needs more brown sugar, so I just add it in at the end. Hope you give it a try and enjoy it as much as we do!
