Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe

I received a package in the mail a few weeks ago from Smiley360 that contained Knorr Homestyle Stock and recipes for using the stock. 
 
I looked through the recipes and this one stood out, mainly because I’m a slow cooker girl. I love my slow cooker because I am a morning person. If I can throw everything together in the morning and have dinner ready at night with no work, then I’m happy.

The pork shoulder I purchased was around 2 1/2 pounds and it worked out just fine. I used a 5 quart Crock-Pot and cooked it for 8 hours on low. About an hour before it was finished, I took the pork shoulder out and shredded it and put it back into the juices so that it could pick up some more flavor.
 
I toasted the hamburger buns in the toaster oven, put a couple of scoops of the pork on the roll and topped it with homemade coleslaw. It was perfect.
 
The dish was so flavorful, which surprised me just a little because the amount of stock I put in there didn’t look like a lot. One little tub of Knorr Homestyle Stock makes 3 1/2 cups of broth. I am used to using “stock in a box” so this was a nice change. The verdict from the family: They LOVED this recipe and the flavor of the stock. My husband said it added so much depth to the flavor of the dish. This was the first time I cooked this particular recipe, so I can’t say whether it was better than when I made it with “regular” stock, but I can say that I cannot wait to try this stock with some of my “standard” slow cooker recipes. I make Chicken and Dumplings in the slow cooker and I think this stock will take that meal to the next level. I will have to keep you updated!

  1. I love pulled pork sandwiches, but I have never made them at home. I am going to add this recipe to my “must make” list though I will leave the cole slaw off. I love it, but not a huge fan of it on the pulled pork lol.

    1. Thanks Theresa! I was so happy to see your blog post this morning, it brought back so many memories.

      I had never done the coleslaw on the pork sandwiches until we stopped at this little restaurant by the beach last year and that’s how they made them. We’ve never looked back – they’ve been that great! This recipe made making the pulled pork so easy (even I was able to do it)!

  2. I like using slow cooker for pulled pork as well,as well as roast’s, beef stew, anythng I want to “set & forget” 🙂 This looks & sounds excellent Haven’t tried the Knorrs stock yet, still watching for best deal on it.

  3. I don’t cook in the slow cooker, but hear alot about how easy it is, that I think I’ll definitely try it in the future!

  4. Pulled pork is by far my favorite slow cooker food. It’s just so good and the house smells yummy all day long. We also like to make beef stew in it.
