Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is one of my favorite meals. It's one I like to make at home and also order from a restaurant when we get the chance to go out. During the winter when I am looking to warm up the house, and have several hours where we'll be at home; I don't mind cooking in the dutch oven. But for the summer and busy evenings, the crock pot it is.

This is the absolute perfect meal for days when you are gone for a long time. The longer you can slow cook the meat, the better. Ten hours and it's so tender.

I generally prepare my pork with a few seasonings and that's it. Liquid is not necessary, because as it cooks there will be plenty of juices from the meat. Not everyone likes barbecue sauce, so I like to mix that in separately as we're preparing sandwiches.  Plus if there's leftovers,  and there almost always are, you have more versatility with plain meat.

And of course, these are perfect for feeding a crowd. That family reunion coming up, go ahead and add pulled pork to your menu. It's a definite crowd pleaser!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

2-3 lbs. pork roast
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp Lawry's seasoning salt
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp thyme

Place pork roast in slow cooker. Sprinkle all seasonings over top of meat. Cover with lid and let cook on low for 8-10 hours.

When ready to serve, remove pork from slow cooker and set on a large plate or platter. Shred using two forks.  Serve with desired sauces on buns.
