Nana’s Pulled Pork BBQ’s

Whether for feeding a crowd or for cooking and freezing leftovers for a smaller family, this slow cooker pulled pork recipe is great for a simple, no-fuss delicious meal.   It was a regular in my house growing up, and it is definitely popular with my own family today (including two big thumbs up from my often meat-avoiding toddlers).
Nana’s Slower Cooker Pulled Pork BBQ’s

4 lbs Pork Butt or Shoulder
Salt, Pepper
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Cumin
1 T Chili Powder
1 Onion, sliced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced

1 Bottle BBQ Sauce
Whole Wheat Buns
Optional Toppings: Sliced Pickles

Season roast with salt and pepper on all sides.  In a hot oiled skillet, brown the roast by cooking on each side for about one minute.  Transfer roast to crock pot.  Add paprika, cumin and chili powder.  Cover with sliced onions and minced garlic.  Cover with lid and cook on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8 hours.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes.  Remove roast and shred with two forks.  Return to crock pot (after draining excess juice if desired).  Add BBQ sauce, reserving about 1/2-1/4 of the bottle to use for topping sandwiches.  Mix until meat is coated and warm through in crock pot.  Serve on whole wheat buns with two pickles.
