RECIPE: Slow Cooker Honey Pork Shoulder


Pork shoulders and crock pots are a marriage made in heaven. The gentle heat of the crock pot going for 8 hours breaks down this inexpensive cut of pork into shredded, tender deliciousness with plenty of juice to make a sauce. This recipe was adapted from Tip Hero and has become an easy weeknight go-to at our house. Crock pots are often overlooked in the summer, but we use them all the time to keep the kitchen cool in the summer months.

This recipe makes a lot of pork. In fact, we make pork tacos accompanied by mango salsa with the leftovers. So you get your money's worth with this meal!
