Description

When you open the crockpot, the pork is floating in its own juices and falls apart when you put your fork in it. You can pull it apart with a spoon, it is so tender. The leftovers also make great sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds Pork Shoulder/Butt
  • 6 cloves Garlic, Pressed
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1-½ Tablespoon White Vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons Salt

Preparation

Combine garlic, pepper, oregano, olive oil, vinegar and salt. Rub pork with garlic mixture and refrigerate overnight.

When ready, drop into the crockpot on low for 8 hrs.

Done! Consume with vigor.

Amazing! I’ve made this a few times and it’s been delicious every single time. I just made it for a party where it fed over 30 people and I got so many compliments. This is my go to pulled pork recipe!

So simple and as my sister says, “Incredible!” On the first night, we had the pulled pork with mashed potatoes. Then the next night we used the pork in tacos and that was the real gem! Tacos make this pork shine! (Corn Tortilla, Tomato, Avocado, Lettuce, Greek Yogurt)
