Seasoned Shredded Slow Cooker Pork

Seasoned Shredded Slow Cooker Pork created by Peter J

This recipe is so simple that it is almost embarrassing. But the end result is a very tender and flavorful meat. The spices enhance the flavor of the pork without making it spicy at all. Can be used in tacos, burritos, on a sandwich bun, or with its sauce can be served over rice.

    This takes the word "easy" to new heights. Beyond simple and very tasty filling for tacos. For lunches, we'll be making sandwiches, but I can see this also going great over nachos, or with rice and beans. I used 1/2 c of beef broth instead of water, and I added a dash of vinegar- I liked the other reviewers idea of vinegar. Additionally, I bought the new lower sodium Old El Paso seasoning pack. I used a 2.2lb pork roast and you could've blown on the meat and it would've fallen apart. So tender and juicy. I cooked on low for 7.5 hrs. Thanks for sharing!

    Very easy to make. We saved the leftovers and froze them. Used it for soft tacos and sandwiches!

    Had a small pork butt in the freezer, and wanted to use the crockpot - since it was STILL 90+ degrees here ! Used the entire Taco packet, but subbed 1/2 cup cider vinegar for the water. Was a tad "puckery", but 2 tsp. sugar made it palatable. The meat was VERY tender, if a bit dry. Served with fried apples and raisins, and haricot vert with shallots and balsamic - for a tasty dinner. Thanks for sharing.
