Crockpot Goodness

I love my crockpot. It's so easy to throw stuff in and have it cooked and ready to eat at dinner time. Sometimes, though, whatever hunka meat I put in there comes out dry...and still edible, but you just know it would could be better if it weren't so dry.

I have found the absolutely perfect recipe for pork roast in the crockpot. Hands down this is the best tasting thing that has ever come out of my crockpot!

Here's the recipe:

Perfect Pulled Pork

Now, she talks about how she made it in the oven. And it took over night and then all day. That makes way too much heat!

I think the secret to the moist pork is the overnight brining. I used a 4ish pound pork roast. And the next morning I dried it off (like the recipe says) and rubbed the dry rub all over it and plopped it into my crockpot. It cooked on low for 10 hours and by dinner time, it was all I could do to not just eat the whole thing! I was so hungry after smelling that all day!!

I just ate mine plain, but TC had his on some bread with some barbeque sauce on it.

I've got to say your timing couldn't have been better posting this! We had a ton of people over for the 4th weekend, and I was trying to figure out how to feed them all with pork tenderloins. This got RAVE REVIEWS! I did like you did and put it in the crock pot all day, and by dinnertime, it was falling apart into yummy goodness! Thanks, girl!
