Pork

Pork is the culinary name for the meat of the domestic pig (Sus scrofa domesticus). It is the most commonly consumed meat worldwide,[1] with evidence of pig husbandry dating back to 5000 BC.[2]

Pork is eaten both freshly cooked and preserved; curing extends the shelf life of pork products. Ham, smoked pork, gammon, bacon and sausage are examples of preserved pork. Charcuterie is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, many from pork.

Pork is the most popular meat in the Western world, particularly in Greece.[3] It is also very popular in East and Southeast Asia (Mainland Southeast Asia, Philippines, Singapore, East Timor, and Malaysia). The meat is highly prized in Asian cuisines, especially in China, for its fat content and texture.

Some religions and cultures prohibit pork consumption, notably Islam and Judaism.

So, I think it really is a fair partnership that my slow cooker and I have in making this delicious pork roast recipe. And it results in the best pulled pork I’ve ever tasted!

How to Make the Best Pulled Pork

To make this pork roast or pulled pork recipe, I begin with my favorite cut of pork, my seasoning, and just the right amount of time in my slow cooker! That’s really the secret.

There are just a few tricks that I’ve found that I want to share with you so you’ll be loving this pork roast as much as we do.

The Best Cut of Pork for Pulled Pork

This is just my opinion, but I prefer to use a shoulder blade roast or Boston butt roast when slow cooking for an extended period – like in this recipe. I think these cuts of meat have just the right ratio of fat to meat to allow the roast to keep its flavor and become extremely tender. This makes such delicious pulled pork!

How to Cook

To make this, you’ll need at least a 6-quart slow cooker that has a tight fitting lid. I have found that one with a WARM setting works perfectly for this recipe.

Ingredients

This pork roast recipe is simple and doesn’t include a lot of ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need to make it.

  • Boston Butt,
  • Worcestershire (or coconut aminos if sensitive to soy),
  • dry rub

I don’t add any other liquids.

Once I have my Boston butt roast (or shoulder blade roast), I place it into my slow cooker with the fat facing up. This allows the fat to drizzle down the sides of the roast as it cooks for amazing flavor and tenderness. I don’t brown my pork prior to placing in my slow cooker.

Once the roast is in the slow cooker, add the Worcestershire or coconut aminos until well-covered. Then season well with dry rub.
