October is National Pork Month. Here's a pulled pork recipe from the Iowa Pork Producer's Association.
10 minutes prep, 360 minutes cook
5 pound boneless blade pork roast 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika 2 teaspoons black pepper 1 teaspoon cayenne 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup water Soft sandwich buns
Combine all the seasonings in a small bowl and rub evenly over roast. Place meat in a 6-quart slow cooker. Add water. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 4-5 hours or until pork is very tender.
Remove pork to a large cutting board or platter and let rest for 10-15 minutes. Pull, slice or chop to serve. Serve in buns with barbecue sauce.
Makes 16-20 servings
Bring the flavor of pulled pork to your slow cooker. Add your favorite bottled barbecue sauce and nothing could be simpler. Serve with baked beans, coleslaw, and potato chips.
