Yields12 Servings

 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
 4 lbs boneless pork shoulder, excess fat trimmed
 1 cup chicken stock
 1 tbsp brown sugar
 ½ tbsp chili powder
 ½ tbsp paprika
 1 tbsp salt
 ½ tsp ground cumin
 ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
 2 cups barbecue sauce
 potato buns, hawaiian bread or your favorite rolls

1

Layer bottom of slow cooker with sliced onions, cover with broth.

2

Mix sugar and all spices, rub into pork.

3

Place pork into a slow cooker, cover and cook until tender enough to fork shred.

4

Remove pork, place on cutting board and shred into uniform pieces.

5

Remove onion/juice mixture from slow-cooker. Strain juice from onions and return them to slow cooker. Save liquid (optional).

6

Tips
7

If you prefer pulled pork with less of a BBQ sauce taste, simply re-add some broth after shredding the pork. This will keep the pork moist.

Offer a choice of rolls. We love Hawaiian bread.
