Easy Crockpot Pulled Pork

I bought this massive pork shoulder because I had a coupon for $6.00 off any pork product and it was the best price I saw on pork, but unfortunately and had no idea what to do with it. I haven't cooked much pork since it was hard to find where we used to live, but I'm rediscovering the deliciousness of pork once again. Thanks for all your recipes. I look forward to trying some of them in the future.

I was set to make this into a Mexican dish but unfortunately I remembered I didn't have cheese and in our house that won't fly. I didn't have the car the day I made this and was rushed for time before I had to get to VBS, so I went to plan B, Kalua Pork. I poured in some apple cider vinegar and some apple juice to cover the roast (thanks to the convenience store across the street) and a smidgen of liquid smoke, maybe a teaspoon.

Cooked it on low for about 8 hours. It came right off and shredded beautifully. It's the most meat my toddler has EVER consumed and he ate it plain. I made up some plain brown rice in the rice cooker and by this time I was craving BBQ sauce, so I served the pork over the rice I added some BBQ sauce on top.

The verdict: Yum and it was excellent on sandwiches tonight. This is such a great recipe and one that is easy to throw together in less than 5 minutes. It gets 5 Stars from us, try it and see how many stars your family would give it.
