Tips and Notes

  • Add some peperoncinis juice. The peperoncinis in this recipe give an exceptional flavor to pork. I like to add a few splashes of pepper jar juice to all my ingredients in the cooking pot. Peperoncinis don’t add spicy spice to their Mississippi pork roast; just a delicious salty taste.
  • Serving tips: I love serving this shredded pork as a sandwich with hamburger buns or Hawaiian sliding rolls. Since shredded pork is such a versatile dish, you could even serve it over rice, as a salad, etc.
  • Storage of leftovers: Any leftover Mississippi pork can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Which cut of meat works best for

Mississippi pork roast?

I have done this many times with pork loin, Boston butt or a pork shoulder roast and everything works great. If you use a fattier of meat like a Boston butt, you’ll want to discard any excess fat when you start crushing your meat.
