You know, it’s a shame that we don’t all have giant smokeks in our backyards. Due to lack of space, money, or desire, smoke pits simply aren’t practical for everyone.

However, who doesn’t love the rich and succulent shredded pork in the southern style, with its smoky essence and sweet and salty bite?

Well, believe it or not, you can make some pretty amazing shredded pork in your cooking pot.

Our 5-ingredient Southern Slow Cooker shredded pork takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and tastes very similar to southern barbecue pork.

What ingredients you’ll need

Five carefully selected ingredients give this shredded pork recipe its southern appeal. All you need is:

  • A large roast of pork – this is the best cut you can use, but not the only cut of meat you can use
  • Apple cider vinegar – helps break down the meat making it more tender and also gives it a sour taste
  • Liquid smoke – brings the flavor of the smoker directly to your slow cooker!
  • Brown sugar – is an excellent base for a dry massage and brings some extra sweetness
  • Cajun seasoning: ideal for adding spicy flavorings that balance

Behind the ingredients

Apple cider vinegar and brown sugar give pork roast that distinctive Carolina barbecue flavor. Liquid smoke emulates the taste of the classic well barbecue, so you don’t need a pit barbecue in the backyard.

In this recipe, I like to use roast to pig butts, but you can also use shoulder roast or Boston butt. I would look for a cut of pork that has a little fat, but not an overabundant amount. Fat will create a great flavor, but you also don’t want to eat large chunks of fat, or have to choose them after cooking.

Why is my clay pot meat so hard?

If your pork is still hard, that means it hasn’t been cooked enough. There are connective tissues within the meat that need to be completely broken down and melted into the meat, which makes the pork so tender that it falls apart with a touch of fork.

How long is this recipe?

Store it in an airtight container, in the fridge, for three to five days. After that, it is better to freeze pork. If it is well wrapped, you can freeze it for up to six months.
