How many times have we made pulled pork in a slow cooker? If there was a country called Slow Cooker, pulled pork would be it’s national dish. It’s the ultimate slow cooker recipe and with such a big title to carry, sometimes it slips and falls right into the boring category reminiscent of my Developmental Economics class in college. A class that was so dreadfully boring I don’t even remember if I passed it.

Fortunately, there’s hope for our beloved slow cooker pulled pork and it comes in the form of this sinfully angelic recipe. This delicious sweet and spicy pulled pork is fall-apart tender. The combination of sweet cherries and dark brown sugar blended with earthy and spicy chipotle peppers brings this recipe to a new mouthwatering level. Top it off with a bright crunchy slaw and you have yourself a sandwich worthy of a standing ovation.

As for y’all stuck in Developmental Economics — I’m sorry but there’s only so much I can do. My advice, switch your major to basket weaving. I hear it’s a lot more exciting.

    That looks fantastic! I assume you trim all the fat from the shoulder first? I’ve had pulled pork roasts end up with too watery of a sauce if the fat wasn’t trimmed.

      Dustin, the fat is where so much of that deep flavor comes from! Leave it in. If your sauce is too watery I’d suggest that when the roast is finished, set it aside and put your sauce on the stovetop and let it reduce to a more appealing consistency.

    Ya know, I’m not a big fan of pork in the crock pot but maybe it’s because I’ve never done it your way! I love that you seasoned and browned the meat first. This looks like pork that was cooked on a smoker. Fabulous! I bet the sauce is amazing. :)
