Great for anything that pulled pork can go on. I always make this when my work place has any type of get together and I never have left overs to bring home.

Serves:

12, but can double as needed

Prep:

30 Min

Cook:

6 Hr

Method:

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

5-7 lb
pork shoulder roast
2-3 Tbsp
oil
62 oz
vegetable or pork stock
4 Tbsp
cumin or toasted cumin
4 Tbsp
salt
3 Tbsp
chili powder, homemade if possible
1 Tbsp
liquid smoke (optional)
2 large
white onions
1
green bell pepper
1
red bell pepper
1 Tbsp
adobe sauce (optional for added heat)
any other peppers to add heat to the pork

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cover the pork shoulder in 2 tablespoons each of salt and cumin.
2
In a Dutch oven or cast iron skillet, heat up the oil and sear the pork. Make sure to sear all sides and not just the top and bottom.
3
If using a Dutch oven, heat the oven up to 250 and take the Dutch oven off heat. If using a slow cooker, move the pork to it now.
4
Add the stock, the rest of the cumin and salt, and all other ingredients to the pot.
5
Cover and cook in oven for 6 hours. In a slow cooker, cook between 6 to 8 hours on low.
6
Once done, drain the juice (I save my to make soup), pull apart meat and mix the ingredients cooked with the pork if desired.
7
Add you favorite BBQ sauce or eat as is.
I use Bull's Eye Memphis Style BBQ, with a tablespoon more cumin and 1/2 tablespoon homemade chili powder added to it.
