A few weeks ago, I decided to try out this easy Southern Pulled Pork recipe because I had a pork roast in my freezer that needed to be consumed. Also, I’ve used my crockpot like four times, and I was long overdue on learning how to use it. So, enjoy cooking this Southern-style pulled pork that I love!
Southern Pulled PorkPrint Recipe
- 1 pound boneless pork roast (mine was pre-seasoned w/salt & pepper from Meijer)
- 1-2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 4 cups of chicken broth
- Cut the pork roast into four large chunks. Season with Cajun seasoning (and salt & pepper if your roast isn’t pre-seasoned). Melt the butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Then add pork and brown on all sides. Remove from pan and transfer to a crockpot.
- Add the onion and garlic to the frying pan and cook until tender. Add a little bit of the broth to the pan and scrape the browned pork bits from the pan. Pour the mix into the crockpot along with the rest of the broth.
- Cook on low heat for 10 hours. Pork should fall apart when pierced with a fork (The internal temperature of pork should be 160 – 170 degrees). Shred with forks and return to the crockpot to keep warm.
- It took me about 10 minutes to prepare all of this, and then it just cooked all day. You could serve this on a bun with coleslaw, but it is good on its own.
