Pulled pork?

I bought a big ol' pork roast on sale yesterday, and I want to put it in the slow cooker today so that by tonight it will be soft enough to fall apart. I've seen recipe suggestions in here for this before, but now I can't find one. What should I put in the pot with it?

I don't know the answer but I'd suggest two things.

A search. And a post at the recipe help board where the experts hang out.

I just throw it in the crockpot with a little liquid smoke, garlic, salt & pepper and let it cook...sometimes add some cajun seasoning, too. You can use LC bbq sauce as well, but I usually wait til it's done and drain the broth off, then stir that in if I use it (I'm not a fan of bbq sauce, so usually just let everyone add that individually).

I normally just eat it plain or throw it on a salad or something, but you can eat it with LC tortillas if you eat those. I also make a sauce w/some of the reserved broth, vinegar, hot sauce & black pepper and have it w/ this sauce, chopped dill pickle and onion.

I cook it in the crockpot, take it out and put LC bbq sauce in it. My favorite LC sauce is Carb Options hickory smoked flavor, but I can't find it anywhere now so I use Kraft Carbwell and add a little splenda to it because I like my bbq sauce sweet. This is good with cole slaw or Bruce's mock potato salad.

I have recipe for tex-mex pulled pork that I just love. I got it from MIL but originally I think it came from Woman's Day magazine. I've made this twice in the crock pot, once with a 2-1/2 lb pork loin roast and once with a 6 lb roast. I doubled the sauce ingredients for the 6 lb. roast. It seems like a lot of sauce but when you pull the pork and return it to the crock pot it the sauce soaks in to the meat and the flavors are delicious.

Tex-Mex Pulled Pork
(serves 6)

Roll up in warmed burrito-size flour tortillas, or serve in taco shells or on burger buns. Shredded lettuce, diced red onion and sour cream are all great toppings.

SAUCE
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce (1 cup)
1 cup bottled barbecue sauce
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 cans (4.5 oz each) diced green chilies
╝ cup chili powder
1 tsp each ground cumin and dried oregano
╝ tsp ground cinnamon

One 2 Ż- lb well-trimmed boneless pork loin roast
Ż cup chopped cilantro

1. Mix sauce ingredients in a 3-qt or larger slow-cooker. Add pork, then spoon sauce over pork just to cover.
2. Cover cooker and cook on high 3 Ż hours or on low 8 to 10 hours, until pork is fork-tender. Remove pork to a cutting board and, using 2 forks, pull meat into shreds.
3. Pour sauce into serving bowl; stir in the cilantro and shredded pork.

Per serving: 265 cal, 32 g pro, 12 g car, 2 g fiber, 9 g fat (3 g sat fat), 84 mg chol, 734 mg sod.

Hi Faye ~ I have a question please. I tend to shy away from cooking loins in the crock pot since they're so lean, and my recipes seem to come out too dry...

Is this one tender and moist when it's all done - or would you recommend using a fattier cut of meat? Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

Back to add - do you really use 1/4 cup of chili powder, if so you don't find that too spicy? (thanks Faye!) *▄*

SSin-Deb, the lean cut of meat was still very moist due to all the sauce. There was more than enough sauce to keep it very juicy. You could use a fattier cut of meat but I don't like that layer of fat that rises to the top.

I did use the full 1/4 C. of chili powder. I love things spicy. The canned green chilis also add a lot of zip. But it was wasn't in any way too spicy. At least not for me. Enjoy!

Thank you Faye for answering my questions! I'm glad to hear that this turns out moist because I've got 2-3 loin roasts in the freezer. This recipe looks so good - thank you for sharing it. *▄*

I just bought a Crock Pot barbeque pit by Rival indoor cooker. It barbeques and slow cooks meat such as ribs, pork, roasts, wings etc. It says that it cooks any meat including pork until the meat falls off the bone,, tender!

I'm gonna pick me up some pork and try it. I just got it and haven't cooked in it yet.

A really good seasoning for pork roast in the crock pot....rub the roast with Liquid smoke and sea salt and then turn it on. It's SO easy and SO good!

Wow... great ideas everyone. I've been trying to find a good pulled pork recipe. My husband's cousin's husband made some at a poker party, yet he wouldn't tell anyone the recipe. I asked his wife and she honestly doesn't know how he does it. I'm sure these will be great!

well i spice it for whatever i want it for. if it's mexican i make a rub of:
garlic powder
salt
pepper
cumin
coriander
cayenne
a touch of chili powder (not much)


then i rub it all over. (i use a fatty pork like pork shoulder or pork fresh picnics) and i put it in a roasting pan uncovered. i put it in the oven at 250 degrees and i let it cook for about 10-12 hours. turning it over 1 time to let it brown off on the back side too. the fat will render out and u have like 1 huge carnita. then after it's done take it out and shred it with 2 forks or ur hand. u will know how long to cook it by being able to stick a 2 pronged fork into the thickes part. if it inserts easily and u can twist it and the flesh starts stringing. then it's done. it's always crusty outside and moist and yummy inside.

i am going to make some this week! we have 2 in the freezer we got on sale for 99cents a pound. woot!
