The Ultimate Slow Cook Pulled Pork
Updated: Jan 19, 2021
Who doesn't love a good pulled pork!!! I mean, yummmm, right!!! Not only can you quickly transform it to some amazing barbecue pulled pork, you can put it on a burger bun or make Cuban sandwiches (if non-keto). Heck, you can even make a pulled pork dip which is fabulous. I'll share my recipe some other time. Pork can easily be made at the beginning of the week, and you can use it throughout. I really hope you enjoy this simple crockpot recipe.
Servings: 6 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 7 hours
Total Time: 7 hours 20 minutes
4-5 pound boneless pork shoulder
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon sea salt
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 cup (chopped) white onion
3 cloves garlic
1/2 tablespoon (roasted) ground ginger
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1. Now listen up. I prefer to do this low and slow for approximately 7 hours in the crockpot. This way it is literally pull apart perfect. I mean juicy sweet pork!! You CAN do it on a 4-5 hour higher setting, but trust me patience makes perfect!! Go for the low and slow method.
2. OK now that's out of the way, pat dry your pork and sprinkle your salt, pepper, and ginger on all sides.
3. Now, we are going to cover the bottom of our crock with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, and toss in about half of your onions and garlic.
4. Now, grab your pork shoulder and put it in your crockpot. Put your remaining onion and garlic on top, and pour over your white vinegar and your Worcestershire sauce. Cover it up for seven hours; no need to mess with it in between.
5. When you open up your crockpot, you are going to see a lot of liquid. You can remove the liquid, use it as a stock for something else, or you can be like me and leave the pork in there while shredding. The last method will allow the juices to absorb back into the meat. The choice is yours. I just don't want you to be surprised when you see a lot of liquid inside your crockpot; this is perfectly normal.
6. Now, it's time to shred. Grab yourself two forks, for both hands, and just rip apart your pork. It should literally fall apart. Easy peasy! Now, you're ready to eat. You can serve it up anyway you like it!! Add some barbecue sauce if you like!! Great with a side of of applesauce (if non-keto) and coleslaw!! Yummmmm!!
