We cooked this up and then shredded it by placing it in our stand mixer while hot and stirring slowly until the consistency reached our desired amount of shred. Do not mix on high or leave unattended. If you don't have a stand mixer, the roast will be tender enough to pull apart using forks. If it isn't tender at first, cook a bit longer until it fall apart.
We served up on buns with bbq sauce. You could also use this meat in tacos, casseroles or quesadillas.
You can use pork loin instead of shoulder, but you may need to reduce your cooking time.
As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
