Pulled Pork


The easiest and most tender pulled pork comes out of the slow cooker.  Look to keep the cooking process for about eight hours.  By coating the pork with spices and herbs and cooking on a bed of garlic and onions moistened with chicken broth produces a very juicy pork.

Cooking method

Place the onions and garlic in an even layer in the slow cooker and pour in the stock or broth.  Combine the sugar, chili powder, measured salt, cumin, and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Rub the spice mixture all over the pork and place the meat on top of the onions and garlic.  Cover and cook until the pork is fork tender, about 8 to 10 hours on low, and save the liquid.

Using two forks, shred the meat into bite-sized pieces.  Return the shredded meat to the slow cooker and mix to combine.  Add 1/4 cup of the liquid at a time to the slow cooker until the pork is just moistened.  Taste and season with salt as needed.
