One of my favorite things to make especially for the Super Bowl is Pulled Pork sliders! Pizza and wings are good but there’s just something about pulled pork that is perfect for your big game party!
I normally prep everything the night before so it’s easy to drop into the crock pot in the morning. I make a brown sugar dry rub that consists of chile power, garlic, cinnamon, paprika, and of course BBQ sauce!
I mix everything together in a big bowl and rub it all over the pork shoulder. Place in a pan or even in the crock pot insert, cover with foil, and put in the fridge overnight.
In the morning cut up one large white onion into quarters and place around the pork.This is more for flavoring.
Also, pour a cup of chicken stock into the crock pot so it doesn’t dry out. (Do not put BBQ sauce in the crock pot)
Now, it’s time to let the crock pot do the work!I like to do it for 10-12 hours on low heat so if you want it for kickoff (6pm) then try to get it cooking by 8AM.Less time is OK but the rule of thumb for pork is low heat for a long time.Basically the longer you cook it the tenderer and delicious it will be!
Once, it’s done take it out of the crock put (be careful because it will probably fall apart) and put it in a pan for shredding.I take two forks and just start going to town.If you cooked it long enough this should take minimum effort.Once it is shredded add that BBQ sauce to the pork, mix it up, serve, and most importantly ENJOY!!
