Crock Pot Pulled Pork

When Dillon took me grocery shopping last Friday one of the stores we shopped at had pork roasts on sale for $1.00/pound.  A great deal, so I bought 3 of them. I fully intend to use at least one of them for another homemade sausage and decided one night this week to make some pulled pork in the crock pot for “the boys” for dinner!  I served it on toasted buns with Salt & Vinegar potatoes…. which I will post another day!

It made enough with only 2 people eating it to freeze some for another day! It is always nice to have a quick meal in the freezer to pull out when you don’t really feel like cooking or you are just really busy!



Here is what I used to make it.

20180822_1037564016839905936480663.jpgI mixed all the ingredients for the “rub” in a small bowl.


And rubbed it all over the pork roast, making sure to press it into the meat really good before placing it in the crock pot….


Once it was in the crock pot, I poured the water and cider vinegar (mixed together) into the crock pot, being careful not to wash any of the rub off of the pork roast while pouring it.

And then cooked it on low heat for about 8 hours.

After the 8 hours, I took 2 forks and shredded/pulled the pork.

I toasted 2 hamburger buns and then spooned the pulled pork on top of them, open faced style (The Boys don’t like it served like a burger for some reason.

I served it with potatoes and veggies for a nice crock pot weekday meal!
