Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Hi peoples!! I am pretty excited to be bringing you today’s post. Now, there is really not much involved in making this crock pot pulled pork. You really just set it and forget it!!! (wooo hooo!!! you see what I did there? haha) BUT what I’m really excited about is for the next 4 days I will be showing you how to make four meals from this one batch of pulled pork. That’s right, you’re getting a total of 5 recipes this week!!! I hope you love the pig like I do (sorry vegetarians!) cause you’re going to be seeing a lot of it!

pulled pork

Ingredients

6 pounds                        Pork Shoulder Butt, yes that is the name of it (one around 6 pounds is fine)

2 Tbls                            Garlic Powder

2 Tbls                            Onion Powder

1 Tbls                            Kosher Salt

2 tsp                               Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Directions

Mix all spices together. Rub this allll over the shoulder.

Place in crock pot on high setting for 4 hours. Reduce to low setting for an additional 2 hours. What you are really looking for is the pork to have an internal temperature of 190-200 degrees. If you have a thermometer that is oven safe I would recommend using this. It will look like this when it’s finished:

Now, take the pork out and place it in a dish with sides, I used a 9x13x2 cake pan. There are a lot of juices that come out of this baby so you don’t want them getting all over your counters! Don’t you DARE throw away the juices. Skim off as much of the fat as you can and save this for later when making your meals. Keep it in the fridge in a tight container or something with a lid/plastic wrap. Let the pork sit out for about 20 minutes to let cool some, don’t worry it will be fine! Next, take your clean hands or you can use tongs and start to separate the meat from the fat and bone. You will get this:

Throw away the fat and bone, now with your fingers or two forks shred the meat. I like to keep it in kind of bigger chunks like this:

Now you are ready to make many different dishes! I keep the spices in the rub just basic so you can have this in many preparations. So what’s next, you ask? Stay tuned!! 😉
