This recipe might look familiar to you, I've posted it once before and talked about it many times - my slow cooker pulled pork is simply the easiest go to meal ever. I'm looking forward to comparing notes with the other back burner cooks over at aiming low, and their back burner recipe contest is what prompted me to re-post this super simple supper.
Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Pork loin, cut if necessary to fit into your crock pot
Beef broth, enough to cover your pork loin (usually ~3 cups)
Cook the pork on low heat in your slow cooker for 6 - 8 hours, until it shreds easily. I usually cook this overnight or during the day, and I usually make big batches so I cook the full 8 hours. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and place it into a casserole dish. Preheat your oven for 350 and shred the pork using two forks and pulling the meat in a crosswise motion. Once the pork is shredded, add either broth or BBQ sauce. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
I serve the meat plain with potatoes, on sandwiches with BBQ sauce, in place of chicken in a tetrazzini recipe, in mexican casseroles, etc. I usually cook as much pork as I can fit in my slow cooker and freeze the leftovers for when I don't even want to take the time to plug in my slow cooker.
