Units:

ingredients

  • 2 lbs pork shoulder, boneless
  • salt, as needed
  • 2 cups fresh lard

directions

  • Turn your crockpot (aka a slow cooker) on high.
  • Heat your lard in the microwave until it has melted and add to the crockpot.
  • Cut your pork shoulder into about 7 pieces and sprinkle with salt.
  • Place the pork pieces in the crockpot leaving spaces between the meat.
  • Cover and cook until the meat is tender.
  • Notes: Brown the cooked meat for a few minutes under the broiler if desired. I have also doubled the meat and the lard and let the meat boil in the lard until tender.
