Day 35: Slow-Cooked Pork

We decided to slow cook some pork today, mostly because it makes for GREAT leftovers. I like to eat it in sandwiches, tortillas, and by itself. Basically, if you have a crock pot and pork shoulder, you have the best easy meal ever.


  • Pork shoulder (boneless or not)
  • Salt
  • 1 onion
  • 4 slices of turkey bacon
  • 1 packet of McCormick’s BBQ slow cooker pork package
  • 1 tablespoon of cayenne

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook time: 8 hours

Executive Decisions

  • None, this was our own recipe (experiment).

How was it?

It was a little spicy for Allison, but we both loved it. We decided to put the pork in a taco with fat free sour cream, lettuce, and fat free cheddar. They turned out great, and amazing.

Things We Would Change

Allison would want a little less cayenne. As most people know, hot things only get hotter with simmering. Our one tablespoon became enough heat for at least two.
