BBQ Crockpot Pulled Pork
This recipe is SO easy and SO good!
1 pork shoulder (make sure it will all fit into your crockpot)
1/4 cup water
Salt and pepper
A good amount of time and patience
Warm the crockpot for approximately 15 minutes before placing pork inside. While it is preheating, rub salt and pepper on the outside of the pork shoulder. Add pork and water to crockpot. Cover and turn up to high, cook on high for one hour. Then, turn to low and cook for 7-9 hours. Leave crockpot covered; no peeking!
Remove pork from the crockpot. Discard fat, reserve juices. Shred the pork using a fork and knife, or pull apart with your fingers (gloves will help protect your hands). Return meat to the crockpot.
At this point, you can either continue cooking the pork in a small amount of the reserved juices, or you can add BBQ sauce to the meat. Either way, cover the crockpot and continue cooking for one more hour.
Once cooking is complete, serve on warm buns or rolls. Coleslaw may be served on the side, or directly on the sandwiches.
