Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

There are so many tasty uses for pulled pork such as being used in salads, pizza, sandwiches, tortillas and so much more. Personally, I love having this in a delicious fresh sandwich with some coleslaw.

The best cut of pork when it comes to something such as pulled pork is typically the shoulder or also known as the Boston butt. Now you don’t have to use this specific cut, but you will undoubtedly find the best results if you do.

You should find that the sauce that you make in this recipe incredibly tasty and goes really well with the shredded pork. However, if you have a favorite BBQ sauce that you love, then you can mix the pulled pork in with that instead. Both sauces are as good as each other so whatever you decide you’re in a for a treat.

The image below shows you sauce from the slow cooker on the left and the barbeque sauce on the right. As I mentioned above, both sauces are delicious.

There are a ton of different spice mixes that you can do for pulled pork. Our blend is just one, and I really hope that you do like it. It has the perfect combination of spices and sauces.

The pork will last for about three to four days in the fridge covered. You can also freeze it, but I can’t say how it will be once you reheat it.
