Looking for a simple yet flavorful way to cook pork? Combine a homemade rub with a cheap cut of pork and cook it slowly in the slow cooker for a fantastic filling for sandwiches, lettuce wraps, and tacos.
Remove the roast from the packaging and place in the bottom of a large slow cooker.
In a small bowl combine the salt, garlic powder, onion powder, onion flakes, chili powder, black pepper, cumin, cloves, and cayenne pepper. Spread this all over the roast, turning the meat to coat all sides.
Cook in the slow cooker for 6 hours on high or 8 to 10 hours on low. The meat will be so tender that it will easily shred with tongs or two forks. Remove the bones and fat, and shred the meat.
Serve the meat as a filling for tacos, sandwiches, lettuce wraps, burritos, salads, or taquitos.
To freeze: cool the meat and divide it into meal-size portions in plastic containers with lids or in ziptop freezer bags. Chill completely before storing in the freezer.To serve: reheat in the microwave or in a pan on the stovetop with a bit of water, if necessary.Promptly store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.Nutritional values are approximate and based on 1/16th the recipe.
