Perfect Pulled Pork

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

Cooking Directions:

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

Serving Suggestions:

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.
