Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork, easily one of my favorite go-to game day or party meals.  A dish you can prepare ahead of time and have all the time to spend with your guests and watching the game!

Here's what you need...............

Pork butt {shoulder} roast.  This one was around 4 pounds.  I trimmed as much of the fat off of it as I could.  Placed it in the slow cooker.

I then mixed the ingredients above as per directions on the back of the McCormick package (see below) and poured it over the top of the pork butt covered it and set the slow cooker on low for 8 hours.

Here's the ingredients of the McCormick's package, in case you're interested.

After 8 hours, it looks like this.

Then I shredded the entire thing with two forks.  At this point, the pork butt roast just falls apart.  Mix it all up really well and serve.

I served it up on hamburger buns.  Yum!

Top with your favorite cheese.

Hope you get a chance to try this easy, delicious recipe.
