Crock Pot Pulled Pork From Heaven

Crock Pot Pulled Pork From Heaven


(5 votes) 4 5

With the leftovers from the pulled pork recipe below, we have made sandwiches, combined some with BBQ sauce and ate it straight from the bowl in the fridge-all sheer bliss. Today when I spied the last of our supply, I was inspired to make tacos with all my favorite toppings. This tends to be one of those recipes in our house where the leftovers are fought over.

Combine brown sugar through mesquite powder. Spread over entire roast. Refrigerate roast in a Ziploc bag for up to 24 hours. Place apple juice and vinegar in a crock pot and add the spiced shoulder being careful not to lose the rub. Cook on high for two hours, then reduce to low for 10 more hours. Remove the roast and let rest for 30 minutes. Pull roast apart with two forks.

  • PULLED PORK FROM HELL*!* Okay, maybe my crock pot is much more high powered than the authors, ALSO it's way too many spices, I'd cut that right in half~ also, keep your eyes and nose on it, there's NOT enough liquid and although I followed this recipe to the letter, mine came out burned to crispy critters*!* Completely inedible!

  • Drizzle honey in the ziploc bag before adding the rub
