So tonight we had pulled pork sandwiches and they were absolutely delish! I was very skeptical about how this would turn out and I was extremely surprised. I can’t take credit for this recipe but I want to share it anyway. Again, I just used one of the McCormick seasoning packets found in the spice aisle at the grocery store.
- 3 lb pork shoulder roast, well trimmed
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- McCormick Slow Cooker Pulled Pork packet
Basically put the pork roast in the crock pot, mix everything else together in a bowl and then pour it over the roast. Turn the crock pot on and cook for 4 hrs on high or 8 hrs on low. Near the end of the cook time, remove the pork and shred it with two forks. Return it to the crock pot and mix it together with the juices. Let it all heat up for about 20 minutes.
I think the key to this one is getting a nice fresh bulky roll. It was so sloppy and delicious. The only issue I had was trying to trim the roast before cooking it. It’s really hard to cut fat off of raw pork. So I did my best and then I just cooked it. What was good was that when I pulled the pork out to shred it, most of the fat just fell off anyway and I threw it away.
I wish I had had some sweet potato fries or corn bread to serve with it, but I did not so we just had it with corn. Yum!
