Ranch recipes: Basic pulled pork

An incredibly simple recipe for the crockpot that yields moist, flavorful shredded pork.


Basic Pulled Pork
 2 pork shoulder steaks
1-2 Tbsp steak seasoning or rub (go light on the seasoning if it contains salt)
1/2 an onion, sliced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 c water or stock

1. Add oil and onions to crock pot. Season both sides of meat liberally and place on top of onions. Add liquid.

2. Turn crockpot to low and cook six to eight hours or until meat starts to fall apart. Remove pork to cutting board and shred with two forks careful to remove bone.

Now you have a pile of shredded pork and many options for what to do next. You could return the meat to the crockpot to soak up come of the juices. Or add it to a bun and slather with some barbeque sauce for a BBQ pork sandwich (my preferred method). Use for tacos or carnitas. Or just eat it plain off the cutting board until you decide you are too full to make anything for dinner.
