Slow cooker pulled pork is my favorite way to serve a crowd! This pork is coated in a homemade spice rub, then simmered in the crockpot until tender. Shred the meat, then dinner is ready to serve! Crockpot pulled pork is easy, tender, delicious and everyone always loves it!

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 onion chopped
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, salt and brown sugar. Rub this all over the pork shoulder.
