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 😉

I don't like olives—leaf me alone! 🥬
⠀
Salads don't really fill up my stomach, so I rarely order them as my main entrée. However, when I am looking for something light, I'll order one.
⠀
When I took @xstephanieeee and @alavia to @3brasseursca before one of the Duke Canada basketball games, I got this pasta salad. I forgot the name of this dish but it's on the lunch menu. I'm not a fan of olives and I knew they'd be in this salad, but I figured it'd be just a few olives. Boy, was I wrong! This was like an olive dump!
⠀
If you don't like olives, I'd highly avoid this particular pasta salad.

Call me irrational for posting a non-pi(e) photo on Pi Day.

Throwback to last July at the Burlington Food Truck festival. Since they were featured on 'You Gotta Eat Here!', I tried the Pulled Pork Beanasaurus from Sul Irmaos Smokehouse.
⠀
As you can tell, it's a sandwich with mess written all over it. It was stacked with pulled pork, chili, coleslaw, and fried mac and cheese bites. Taste-wise, it was okay. The fried mac and cheese bites placed on top didn't elevate the sandwich as I hoped it would. It didn't provide the cheesiness I wanted it to.
