This is seriously the easiest shredded pork recipe I have ever made. When Fall comes around my crockpot / slow-cooker gets dusted off and is responsible for a lot of my meal prep.
I saw a recipe for Kalua Pork and Cabbage in the Taste of Home magazine I randomly started getting (I didn’t subscribe) and was really excited to try it because it looked so easy.
As usual I made some modifications to suit my taste. The original recipe called for salting the pork prior to putting it into the slow cooker. I did that and it was WAY too salty (I used about 1/2 of the recommended salt). Needless to say, this step is totally unnecessary and I will omit it all together next time since bacon is salty enough on its own.
The original recipe also called for pork shoulder / butt and all I had on hand was pork sirloin roasts from Costco (They come in a 4-pack; see image below from 2 Wired 2 Tired).
The pork turned out really well and is definitely something I will be making again.
2 Costco Pork Sirloin Roasts (6-8 pounds total)
1 package bacon
Line the bottom of the crockpot / slow cooker with 4-5 pieces of bacon.
Place the 2 pork sirloin (or shoulder/butt) roasts on top of the bacon and cover the roasts with the remaining bacon.
Turn the crockpot / slow cooker on to low for 8-10 hours.
Shred the pork with either 2 forks OR a handheld mixer (only takes 10 seconds…be careful not to overdo it with the mixer or it will become mush).
