This recipe comes from Crock-Pot Ladies reader Phaedra Valente and it is so good! Best of all there are only 4 simple ingredients and the pork comes out of the slow cooker moist and tender with enough to serve a good 6 to 8 people (more if you want to serve this pulled pork on slider buns as an appetizer!
Phaedra instructs to brown and sear the pork roast in a cast iron skillet before adding the meat to the slow cooker. This extra step helps to seal in moisture as well as adds a different flavor profile. However, I know that some people shirk away from any recipe that requires cooking on the stove top before so if that is you, go ahead and skip that step if you want to. The pork will still be delicious…just a tad different than the finished results if you follow the recipe exactly.
You can use your favorite brand of barbecue sauce. We are pretty partial to Sweet Baby Ray’s brand ourselves but really..whatever melts your butter!
This recipe was cooked in a 6 – 7 quart slow cooker… here is one of our favorites!
