Let’s keep the Slow Cookin’ Summer Series going with this recipe from JoLynne from Musings of a Housewife. Here’s her recipe:
One of our favorite slow cooker meals is this slow cooker pulled pork. It is so incredibly easy, but it tastes like you’ve slaved in a hot kitchen all day. It’s moist and flavorful, and because it marinates in its own juices all day, it practically melts in your mouth.
Our family likes it piled high on a hoagie roll, or you can serve it on its own with lots of sides. It’s the perfect recipe for a big picnic or potluck because it serves a crowd. But if you’re serving a smaller crew, it makes great leftovers.
Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
- 3 to 4 lbs pork shoulder
- 1 large sweet onion
- Hot dog buns or Kaiser rolls
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 dashes hot sauce
- 2 cups water
- Slice a large sweet onion into discs and drop them into the bottom of a slow cooker.
- Sprinkle the pork loin on all sides with salt and pepper and place it on top of the onions in the crockpot.
- Cover and cook on low for six to eight hours or until the pork is falling apart.
- About an hour before you want to eat, combine the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, salt, hot sauce and water in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Heat to boiling and boil one minute.
- With two forks, shred the pork and mix in the onions.
- Pour about a cup of the sauce over the pork (or to taste) and use the fork to mix it in. Reserve the remaining sauce to serve with the pork sandwiches.
- Cover and continue to cook for another 30 to 45 minutes. Serve on a roll with the remaining barbecue sauce and your favorite sides.
