Super Easy Pulled Pork

Easy Pulled Pork

I love pulled pork. I didn’t realize I loved it until a few years ago, but apparently I do. (I should add, we rarely had any pig other than bacon in my house growing up, so this makes sense, at least to me.)

This is crazy easy, although it does require a little bit of preplanning.

Get yourself a 6 – 7 lb pork shoulder (I cook for a million, so adjust to your needs) or a picnic shoulder (I’m pretty sure these are the same thing). If it’s frozen, it needs to be defrosted.

Gather up the following:
3 Vidalia onions
5 Tbsp. chili powder
1.5 tsp. coriander
1 Tbsp. cumin
1 Tbsp. onion powder
1.5 Tbsp. dried parsley
.5 tsp chipotle powder
1 Tbsp sea salt

Slice the onions and make a bed at the bottom of your slow cooker. Or don’t. It’s flexible like that. We made this a few days ago without the onions because we were feeling lazy. It was still delicious.

Mix up the rub and give your pork a good rubdown. Use all of the mix. Really.

Rest your meat on top of the onions, put the cover on your slow cooker, throw it on high for 6 hours and walk away.

Sure enough.

Once it’s off (and you can leave this on warm for a while with no worries), put it back on to low for another 12 hours or so. Sometimes I leave this on warm overnight, and turn it back on to low around 8 AM, so it’s ready for dinner.

I told you, this requires planning. You are cooking for basically two days. So make sure you remember to make dinner on that first night. (Guess who has made this mistake before – you get three guesses and the first two don’t count)

We had pulled pork tacos. Throw some pork on a corn tortilla, add some greens (we used a bag of chopped southwest salad), some crema, some queso fresco, avocado, salsa, and there’s dinner!

I know you have leftover pork. Make some taquitos. Add some bbq sauce (or this one!) and you’ve got bbq pulled pork. More tacos. Just eat it plain. Seriously. With the seasoning, it’s delicious.
