Eastern Pulled Pork - Slow Cooker style

Dave and I tried this recipe out in the crockpot this week and I think we are about porked out! It makes a TON of food! I was testing it for our a baby shower that we are throwing next month. It's really easy and yummy too! The recipe is from the Southern Plate site.


Pork Roast (approximately 5 pounds) - I bought two roasts at 2.5 lbs each at Trader Joe's

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/2 cups cider vinegar (that is one and a half cups, not eleven cups ~giggle~)

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon hot sauce

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

*To the side I mixed the same measurements of the vinegar, hot sauce, sugar, and red pepper together in a container to keep for serving with the meat.


1.Put roast in slow cooker and sprinkle salt and pepper over. Pour cider vinegar over. Cover with lid and cook on low for twelve hours (I cook it overnight). Remove pork roast and shred with forks (this will be very easy). Drain juices from slow cooker, reserving two cups of liquid. Return pork to slow cooker. To the reserved liquid add: Brown sugar, hot sauce, and crushed pepper flakes. Stir well. Pour over shredded pork and place lid back on. Place on low or warm setting until ready to serve. Can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, reheating in the microwave.

2.I estimate this to make enough for about eight sandwiches, give or take.

3.*This sauce is not spicy. If you prefer a spicier sauce double the hot sauce and crushed red pepper flakes. Add more to taste.
