Recipe: Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


The Super Bowl was this past Sunday and I threw a “party” for it. Last year I ordered pizza, wings, and made nachos for myself (Yes, I was having a Super Bowl party myself).  This year I decided to attempt to make pulled pork. I’ve never made it before nor do I have a grill. Luckily my house has a slow cooker and I knew of recipes that used a slow cooker.

I went searching through Pinterest and looked at all the easy pulled pork recipes. I gathered a general idea of what to throw in and the kind of pork to use.

Since I’ve never made it before, I did a tester run before the Super Bowl. In the tester, I used the following:

  • 1/3 of a pork loin (boneless)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup of root beer (I used Mug Root Beer)
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup BBQ sauce (I used Bull’s-Eye Guinness BBQ sauce)
  • 1 onion (chopped into 4 chunks)

When it came to the Super Bowl, I changed it up a bit as I was feeding more people. This is what I used:

  • 2/3 of a pork loin (boneless)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2/3 cup of Dr. Pepper
  • 2/3 cup BBQ sauce (I used Diana®‘s Western Smokehouse)
  • 1 onion (chopped into 4 or 8 chunks)
  • chopped carrots

 

To make the pulled pork, here’s what I did:

  1. Take the pork loin and create a dry rub with the salt, pepper, and garlic. Then chop the onion into 4 cloves.pulledpork
  2. Place the onion chunks at the bottom of the slow cooker, going around the circumference of it. If you have more than one piece of pork loin and they’re stacked, place the onions at the bottom of the slow cooker and on top of the stacked pork loin pieces. You want the onion  Then throw in the carrots (They don’t need to be placed in a certain way). pulled porkpulled pork
  3. Plop the pork loin into the slow cooker and pour the BBQ sauce on top of the pork loin and also mix it into the root beer/Dr.Pepper. pulled pork
  4. Set the slow cooker on low and wait 6-8 hours.
  5. After 6-8 hours, you’ll see juice from the pork loin seep out into the soda and BBQ mixture. Take out the pork loin and start shredding it with a fork. You can use your hands or any other utensils. pulled porkpulled pork
  6. Pour out the meat juice from the slow cooker. You can keep this and re-use it for something else.
  7. Take the shredded pork and place it back into the empty slow cooker. Add in your desired amount of BBQ sauce and mix thoroughly. pulled pork
  8. Set the slow cooker back to low for about 40 minutes to an hour.
  9. Once the hour has passed, take out your pulled pork and eat! 😀

I never realized how simple it was until I made it and now I’ve done it twice! Easy peasy. Below is what I did for the Super Bowl. Made nachos and Pulled Pork sandwiches using hot dog buns (the cheapest!). Since the NBA All-Star Weekend is this coming weekend, this would be a good party food choice 😉

It's more metal to suck balls without using a plastic straw 🤟
⠀
I love bubble tea and the amount of it I've been drinking made me realize how much more plastic waste I've been contributing. So recently I've made the switch to using metal straws.
⠀
While I might have to carry my straws with me and clean them myself, to save the Earth and reduce the effects of climate change, I'm willing to do it.
⠀
Earth is not just for our generation but for our future kids' generation and their kids. It is our job to make sure the Earth is still alive and kicking for them 🌎

I'm back! Nice to meat you all again 🍝

I've been MIA because of my phone. My almost 5-year old Sony Xperia Z3 bootlooped twice and I had to factor reset it, wiping everything, and I didn't get to back up all the internal data. Then my phone also corrupted a microSD card with new food photos I had, so I lost those too.
⠀
So I've been looking for a new phone, and now after 11 years of being with Sony-branded phones, I'm now part of #TeamPixel ✌️

Minus the five years of data that I lost, my phone and I are tapiokay now! 📱

Let's get 100% real here: Almost broke down because my phone died on Tuesday and currently can't afford a new phone. Luckily, factory resetting my phone fixed it! I also never backed up my phone for the 5 years I've owned it, so I lost all my contacts and other data not on my SD card. (So if you have my number, text me yours because I lost ALL. DA. NUMBERS.)
⠀
Thank you to @maestroannie for letting me use her phone for these photos! 🙏

Summer means it's Ribfest time! It's a yearly tradition for me to hit up any Ribfest I can in Ontario. Today I went to the @oakvilleribfest. Besides ribs, always gotta get the blooming onion, deep fried cheesecake, and funnel cake!

A nice, cold drink makes the summer heat beerable 🍺

I've been missing Iceland a lot lately and have been craving Einstök beer. Here's a #ThrowbackThursday post to when I ordered a non-alcoholic, alcoholic beer in Iceland. Read about this funny story on my travel account ✈ @asyoutravelit.

What's your favourite beer?
