Easy Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I will be the first to admit that I am not much of a cook. So, I take pride when I can actually make something good. I am going to share with you a super easy, crock pot, pulled pork recipe.

  • 3-5 lbs of pork shoulder 
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • 1/2 head of garlic 
  • 1 cup of chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • Barbecue sauce
1. In a small bowl mix all spices (cinnamon, cumin, brown sugar, chili powder, and salt) together. 

2. Slice the onions and garlic into thin slices and add to the bottom of the crock pot. Pour the chicken stock over the onions and garlic. 

3. Pat pork shoulder dry with a paper towel, place on top of onions and garlic,  and add the spices to the  pork. I treated it like a rub. 

4. Cook the pork on high for 6-8 hours. I checked mine at 7 hours and it was perfect! 

5. Remove the pork shoulder from the crock pot and on to a cutting board and strain the remaining onion mixture and keep the juice and throw out the onions (you can keep the onions if you would like). Shred the pork with 2 forks and add the shredded pork back to the crock pot. Add the stained juice and barbecue sauce to the crock pot at cook for another hour on low. 

6. Once the pork is done add it to buns with more barbecue sauce to taste and enjoy!
