Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
This is a great simple Slow Cooker Pulled Pork recipe. The pork comes out moist and tasty.
I believe a good pulled pork is best cooked low and slow. I love cooking in the slow cooker because it allows me to cook longer and when you cook for a long time it come’s out so tender that it fall’s apart when you shred it. You can purchase special shredder tools to help, but I find some sturdy forks work just as well.
Now how am I frugal when purchasing an expensive cut like a pork shoulder? Shopping around and watching prices on pork is essential to keeping this meal within a good budget. I find that my local store puts their tenderloin on sale at least twice a year for $.99/lb. And most stores will slice a huge piece into smaller pieces if you ask. A whole tenderloin can be sliced into 2 or 3 even pieces and packaged for the freezer. They will keep up to 3 months in a freezer. Use one immediately and save the others for more meal.
If you prefer BBQ sauce on your pulled pork, add your favorite BBQ sauce on top prior to serving.
