This Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is delicious and makes enough for a hearty dinner, lunchtime sandwiches and a breakfast hash later in the week.
When I tell you this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is a staple in our house, I really mean it. I love any recipe that (a) cooks in the slow cooker, (b) makes enough to feed my family dinner with leftovers for work and school lunches the next day and (c) is easy to double so that I can cook once, eat multiple times – or freeze the remainder for another meal on another day. If you choose to double the recipe, just purchase a 6-7 pound pork shoulder and double the other ingredients. I have to be honest, I never ever make a 3 pound pork shoulder. It is just too easy to use – even freeze the cooked meat to eat again at a later date.
There was a time that the only way I ate Pulled Pork was shredded with barbeque sauce between two burger buns. Don’t get me wrong, BBQ Sandwiches are delicious – really delicious! But I have found that pulled pork is a lot more flexible than I gave it credit for in my early days of cooking. So don’t pile on the barbeque sauce while the pork is in the slow cooker. Pull out whatever you want to use for other recipes first. We love serving this recipe right on the plate with a load of veggies as a main dish. Barbeque Sandwiches are always lunch or dinner the second day.
Perhaps our favorite way to use this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is in this Pulled Pork Hash with Baked Eggs. It is so good that we can eat it for breakfast or dinner. It also serves to use up those last bits of pulled pork that are left when there isn’t quite enough to feed the whole family. The Pulled Pork Hash with Baked Eggs is a very flexible recipe. Alter the ingredient amounts based on what you have – it is always tasty!
