Pork Shoulder Pulled Pork Sandwiches are amazing! Pork shoulder is an affordable cut (I can feed 5 people, with leftovers, for around $8-10). It’s also really easy to cook – you just let it cook all day in your slow cooker until it becomes moist and tender. First, I salt and pepper my shoulder and place it in my slow cooker (fat side up) with orange wedges and a little orange juice. I let this baby cook all day until the meat is practically falling off the bone. I strip, or “pull,” the meat from the bone and return it to the slow cooker with about a half a bottle of this delicious Dinosaur BBQ sauce. Let it cook on low for an additional 30 minutes and serve atop some delicious toasted buns. You’re good to go – these are the perfect sandwiches to serve at your Super Bowl party!
- 1, 5lb pork shoulder
- 1 orange, sliced into wedges
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 bottle Dinosaur BBQ sauce
- Sea salt and cracked pepper for rubbing shoulder
- Sandwich buns
- Rub both sides of the pork shoulder with sea salt and cracked black pepper and place in slow cooker, fat side up. Pour orange juice over and scatter orange wedges around pork. Cook on low, 8-10 hours or until meat is tender.
- Remove pork shoulder to carving board and allow to cool until meat can be pulled. Remove orange wedges from slow cooker and discard. Once pork has cooled, pull strips of pork off with a fork and place back in slow cooker. Pour BBQ sauce over pulled pork and mix well. Cook on low for an additional 30 minutes. Place pulled pork on sandwich buns and serve immediately.
