Pulled Pork Quick and Easy

Hey Ryan, I need some “pulled pork” help. I bought pork shoulder thing and I want to put it in the crock pot all day for pulled pork sandwiches tonight. I’m not sure what seasonings to use, if I need to sear it, and should I use a rub? Is there any way you can help this lost girl in the kitchen? -Kelly G.

  1. Ryan,

    Who doesn’t love pulled pork? Plus I love the idea of using Dr. Pepper. I have one question. After you remove the pork, after 4 hours, and season it do you cook it longer? Or do you remove, season, and serve?

    • John,
      In an ideal world it’s finished cooking. One thing I should mention, if you’re not in a hurry and will serve it later, is to let it cool in the cooking liquid. It will be more moist that way. Once it’s cooled you can then remove it from the liquid and make a sauce. But if you’re serving right away. Once the pork is tender enough to pull apart with two forks, season it and serve.
