Texan Style Pulled Pork Tacos

Even though the weather has gotten warmer, don't put away that crock pot yet!  I usually pack it away into the deep dark corner of my pantry only to emerge again when the weather warrants some good crock pot stew or pot of beans. 

This recipe would also work well with beef or chicken or possibly turkey.  I'll make it again with different spices and guaranteed it will come out perfect every time.  The magic of crock pots!

This Texas style pulled pork was great into tacos.  I could also envision it for pulled pork mini sliders! 

Ingredients: (for 4 servings)

1/2 tsp oil

1 (2 lb) small pork shoulder roast

1/2 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup chicken broth

1/8 cup light brown sugar

1/2 Tbsp mustard

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 large onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, chopped

1 tsp dried thyme

Assembling this is a cinch!  Just pour the oil into the crock pot, add pork, then the remaining ingredients, stir and cook on high for about 5 - 6 hours.  Remove the pork and shred the meat using two forks.  Return to the crock pot to absorb the juices for a bit and serve either with tacos, enchilada or as mini pulled pork sliders.  So easy!   You can easily double this recipe for approx. 8 servings.
