This is the easiest, most versatile way I've found to cook a pork roast in the crock pot. The meat goes in raw, and needs just a few ingredients you almost certainly already have on hand. We like to eat it in Vietnamese-inspired lettuce wraps, pulled-pork barbeque sandwiches, and pulled-pork tacos. The seasoning is simple enough that it works for all these recipes and more.


  • 3–4 pound pork shoulder roast (bone in or out)
  • 1 T salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce or Liquid Smoke
  • 1 T sugar or to taste


  1. Place your pork roast in the crock pot and with a small paring knife, make little slits all over the top of the pork.
  2. Sprinkle 1 T salt over pork, rubbing it in to the slitted area. Top with 1 T Worcestershire sauce or Liquid Smoke.
  3. Cook on high 1 hour, then switch to low for 7 hours, or cook on low for 10–12 hours.
  4. When pork is done, use two forks to remove the bone and shred the pork in its liquid. Add sugar (if using) and more salt to taste.
