This pork is so flavorful, so tender, and the perfect comfort food. You can do just about anything with it: make sandwiches, quesadillas, nachos or just eat it standing over your slow cooker with a fork! I like it best served on a bun topped with pickles, avocado and my crunchy coleslaw (find the recipe here).
Technique tip: Reserving some of the cooking liquid to serve with the pork. It will keep it moist and add a wonderful depth of flavor.
Swap option: If you don't want to add BBQ sauce, just add more of the cooking liquid.
In a slow cooker, add sliced onions and garlic. Pour chicken stock and apple cider vinegar over the top.2.
In a small bowl, combine all spices and stir.3.
Rub spice rub all over pork. Place the seasoned pork in slow cooker and cover. Cook on high for 6-8 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.4.
Once done cooking, remove pork with tongs and place on a cutting board. Using a fine mesh strainer, drain onions and garlic over a large bowl, reserving liquid. Place onions and garlic back into slow cooker.5.
Using two forks, shred pork (discarding any fatty pieces). Place back in slow cooker. Add about 1/2 cup of the reserved liquid, and desired amount of BBQ sauce, and stir to combine.
