Cuban slow cooker pulled porkPosted: October 9, 2018 Filed under: Cooking, Recipes Leave a comment
This 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.
