Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

This smells great all day while it's cooking and ends up tender and juicy and full of flavor. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

5 lbs boneless pork shoulder
2 onions, sliced
3 cups V-8 juice, low sodium
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1.5 tablespoons ground cumin
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Place onions, V-8, garlic, paprika, chili powder, pepper flakes, cumin, vinegar, brown sugar and salt into the slow cooker. Stir to combine. Add the pork and mix together gently.

Cover and cook for 8 hours with slow cooker set on low. After four hours, turn meat over once, cover and continue cooking.

After 8 hours, remove the meat and set aside. Carefully place liquid from slow cooker into blender and blend until smooth. (If the hot sauce makes you nervous you can let it cool a bit before you transfer it to the blender.)

Shred pork with two forks, return to slow cooker. Add sauce from the blender and cover and keep warm until serving.

Serve over toasted bread or buns.
