Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
We love to make meat for the holidays!! Our favorite meat to cook up is steak, but we also love to cooke up hamburger and hot dogs and my hubby’s favorite – pulled pork! He’s been a long time fan, and I have to admit I’m a convert now. I’ve always liked it, but now I LOVE the meat. I especially love that it’s so simple and today’s recipe is one that is made in the slow cooker or crock pot.
My mom first found this recipe from Favorite Family recipes. It’s how she’s been making it for years, but has since added the liquid smoke. It just adds the perfect flavor to the meat. We changed up their recipe a tid, but it always turns out perfect! We sometimes use the pork plan but also love to add BBQ sauce (our favorite is Sweet Baby Ray’s) and make delicious pulled pork sandwiches with it. We can tell you right now, this recipe is no-fail! It’s simple and always gone quickly!
How to Make Pulled Pork
Making this recipe is so simple! It literally takes less than 5 minutes to prep. The main question people ask is what kind of cut to use for the pork? You can use a pork shoulder or pork butt, but we like the butt piece better. 😉 From there, just follow these easy steps:
- Rub salt all over the piece of pork.
- Place in slow cooker, cover in liquid smoke and cook for 8-10 hours on LOW.
From there, your pork should shred into pieces. We like to take two forks and shred the meat to use on it’s own (like in tacos) or to add bbq sauce to. It’s obvious we like to use them for our Pulled Pork Sandwiches, but we also like to make Green Chili pork (pork with 505 sauce) for burritos too!!
We like to use the Pork Butt because it’s the most flavorful… I know. Sounds gross, but it’s the truth. 😉
