Slow Cooker Pork Shoulder

"Easy and versatile. After it's cooked I pull it apart and then separate it, to make 2 different meals by changing up the sauce. I will post the sauce recipes separately. :-)"

Ready In:
8hrs 5mins




  • Score fat cap on the pork shoulder in a diamond pattern.
  • Rub the shoulder with the Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke, use enough to cover entire shoulder.
  • Combine spices and rub on top and sides.
  • Layer onions on the bottom of the slow cooker and place shoulder on top.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight, not necessary but recommended.
  • Remove and allow to come to room temperature.
  • Drizzle honey all over the top, enough to thinly cover.
  • Cook on low for 6 - 10 hours, it depends on the meat and how you like it.
  • Pull meat apart with a couple forks and it's ready for 'dressing'.
  • After that, the possibilities are endless.
  • I took half the meat and put it back in the slow cooker on warm with 1 cup of bbq sauce and a cup of cola mixed with meat for 30 mins.
  • Served with baked beans and rice tonight.

<p>I post what I cook. It's an eclectic, and hopefully simple collection of recipes. I'd love to post most of what I cook, but frankly I'm not good at the measurements and I tend to be a 'add a dash of this and that' kinda cook.&nbsp;As a&nbsp;result, I can be a little lazy in posting recipes.&nbsp;I strive to make large meals that don't cost a lot, I've got 4 kids. Yes they eat what I post :)&nbsp; My main goal these days is to get the most out of what we pay for groceries...with 5 large eaters &nbsp;me, we're&nbsp;on a 'below low income level' budget, it's important to buy cheap and cook around the ingredients. Some recipes come from&nbsp;splurges ;)&nbsp; Use the recipes as a guidline and modify to suit your tastes.</p>
