Cuban slow cooker pulled pork

Cuban pulled porkThis recipe from Valerie Bertinelli for Cuban slow cooker pulled pork is extremely simple. It calls for rubbing the pork with cumin, garlic, kosher salt, and black pepper. While I usually omit the salt, I like including kosher salt in a recipe like this. It also specifies orange juice and lime juice. I used both fresh oranges and fresh limes. While the recipe says to use pork shoulder, my go-to cut for pork slow cooker recipes is tenderloin. I cooked the pork in my slow cooker on high for six hours and shredded it.

The original recipe was about making sandwiches with the pork, but I skipped the whole sandwich part and served it as a main dish for dinner.

Very tasty.
