Slow Cooker Pulled Pork – recipe

Sometimes I create something so delicious that I have to share it. I did this last night, and it’s a must try for sure, and hopefully something I can make regularly!

This week pork shoulders were on sale at our grocery store (No Frills). I grabbed the smallest one there, at a rather large 1.866kg (a little more than 4lbs for all your Americas or those kicking it old school in Canada) for only $9! I feel like I should go back and get another one, because that price is insane! It made enough for the hubby and I to each have a large wrap for dinner, 2 large wraps for lunch today, and I froze enough for two more dinners!

I think most people have their own go-to pulled pork recipe, but I thought I would share mine, because it is possibly the best non-smoked pulled pork I have ever had. I looked up on allrecipes.com for some general ideas, but came up with my own based our my family’s likes and what we had in the house:

ingredients –

4lb pork shoulder

1tsp vegetable oil

1 cup bbq sauce (I used Kraft garlic, because it is one of our favourites and is pretty inexpensive)

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1tsp garlic powder

1tsp dried thyme

directions – Pour the vegetable oil on the bottom of the slow cooker, place the pork shoulder in. Add all the other ingredients (I didn’t even stir them) Cook on high for 6-7 hours. At the 6 hour mark, my roast shredded easily and then I let it sit in the sauce until we were ready to eat (which happened to be about an hour later). I used tongs to remove the meat from all the liquid, and we ate ours in whole wheat wraps (toasted buns or even just regular bread would be tasty), we added a little more bbq sauce, and of course you can’t forget your favourite coleslaw on it as well. I prefer a vinegar coleslaw when putting in on your pulled pork, as the vinegar is a nice balance with the sweet pork.

It was so good last night for dinner, and possibly my wrap today for lunch was a little better. Enjoy!

I also linked up this recipe over at Newlywed Blog, so feel free to check out that linkup for some fantastic recipes!
