Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

This recipe is going to be vague… it’ll get better as I get better at making it!

1) Throw Pork Sirloin Tip Roast (or similar) in the slow cooker for about 8 hours with spices including: paprika, red pepper flakes, black pepper, garlic salt, cumin, and others to your liking plus one 12 oz beer (I used Lagunitas IPA) and 16 oz water.

2) Pull pork once tender using two forks (probably after 4-6 hours)

3) Drain out juices from pork keeping half in a sauce pan and discarding other half, spread pork on a lined backing sheet

4) Reduce juices via heating and adding flour until thick enough to stick to a spoon, add an equal amount of your favorite BBQ sauce and pour over spread pork

5) Broil for about 10 minutes stirring every few minutes to crisp

6) Serve with side of more BBQ sauce and enjoy!

Slow Cooker and Broil Pork Carnitas

What you need:

  • Pork! I used about 4 pounds of Pork Sirloin Tip Roast from Costco
  • 2 limes
  • 2 cups of chicken broth or cubes
  • Spices! I used in order of amount cumin,¬†garlic powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, paprika, garlic salt, pepper

How to do it:

  • Put pork, broth and spices in the slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours (everything but the limes
  • Pull out pork with slotted spoon and put on cookie sheet
  • Simmer broth until cooked down to be thick enough to see trail of a spoon when stirring (can add flour as needed)
  • Pour sauce over pork on cookie sheet
  • Broil about 10 minutes stirring once or twice
  • Squeeze juice of 1-2 limes on top of meat and enjoy!
