If you work long hours or plan to be out all day, then you should definitely have a crockpot do all the work for you!
The great thing about crockpot cooking is that you can buy cuts of meat that would otherwise be tough; those cuts that need super-long cooking times on low temperatures. These cuts (particularly with beef) tend to be cheaper, too.
When it comes to pork, you can cook any type of cut in the crockpot, but only a few work in a way that you can use them for pulled pork dishes. I’ve used tenderloin when I didn’t have another option, but pork shoulders and pork loins are cheaper and work better.
Another great thing about shredded pork (or beef for that matter) is that it just seems to taste better when it’s shredded compared to chunks or pieces of meat, and it takes sauce better.
This recipe is great to eat on its own, on top of Paleo biscuits, or however you want it. I’m particularly partial to eating it with slowcooker cabbage and apples (recipe to come). If you can find a decent Paleo biscuit or bread recipe, this pork is great with some homemade coleslaw on top. It’s also good served on its own with a big pile of sweet potato fries and an avocado salad.
