Who doesn’t like a recipe that takes just minutes to prepare and makes your home smell like you’ve been slaving for hours? Push a button and walk away. A small amount of effort with a big reward! And you can always play around to elevate the flavors in this dish. Throw in a couple cloves of minced garlic or ginger. Or even add in a 1/4 cup of brown sugar. Make it your own! This no-fuss recipe is the perfect meal to make for a crowd or family gathering. (Sport watching party!) Juicy pork shredded and served inside of your favorite sandwich roll.
Crock-pot Pulled Pork
1 Tablespoon olive oil
Kosher Salt and Black pepper
1 Pork shoulder roast (About 4-5 pounds)
2 Cups Beef broth
1/2 Cup apple cider vinegar
Bottle favorite barbeque sauce (Carolina style is great!)
Season both sides of pork generously with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the seasoned pork roast into the pan and sear. Searing meat is about building flavor and caramelizing your meat. And oh, what flavor it is! Once all sides are a beautiful brown remove from heat. Now here is the easy part!
Just slide your pork into your crockpot directly from the pan. Making sure to pour in those leftover juices from the pan. Pour your other liquids in as well. Now pop on the lid and cook on low for eight hours. (You could also cook on high and just cut the time in half.)
Once done carefully transfer your pork roast to a bowl. Using two forks to shred the meat. (Or you can just pull it once cooled.)
Serve on your favorite roll along with your favorite sauce. So delicious and super easy. Your house will smell incredible! I like to serve it alongside a Persian cucumber and tomato salad for a little crunch and lightness.
**Tip** Hawaiian buns work great and give it a yummy sweetness.
