Easy and delicious slow cooker pulled pork. Can also be made on the stove-top or in the oven!
2lbs.pork shoulderor Boston Buttt, bone-in or boneless, cut into large chunks if necessary to fit into your pot
2red peppersseeded and diced
3 - 4Tbspchili powder
Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and stir to combine a bit (not easy, since it’s very dry at this point but just move things around a bit, to coat).
Cook covered for 4-5 hours on High or if you want it to cook longer, you can reduce the heat a bit. (If the roast is exposed on the top, I like to open the lid every hour or so and flip it over but it isn’t really necessary if it’s not convenient.)
To test, take a piece of pork and try shredding it with two forks. If it shreds easily, go ahead and remove/shred all the chunks of meat, discarding any large chunks of fat or the bone, if you started with a bone-in roast. (If not, cook a little longer). Return the shredded meat to the sauce.
Stir the meat into the sauce, and let simmer about another 1/2 hour, UNCOVERED, to thicken up the sauce.
Serve on crusty rolls with bbq sauce, coleslaw on the sandwich or on the side, if desired.
