I’ve seen dozens of recipes for preparing pulled pork in a slow cooker with a sauce. That’s definitely the simplest way to go, but I don’t think it’s the tastiest option. When meat is prepared that way, it absorbs so much sauce, that the flavor of the meat is completely overpowered. Also, I don’t like the texture. It’s blah boiled meat.
Here’s another way to go. It takes a little more effort, but I think the results are worth it. You can roast and shred the meat ahead of time, and put it in the freezer. When you’re ready to serve it, thaw it and throw it in the slow cooker with your desired sauce for an hour or two. It will taste like yummy pork in sauce instead of like sauce with a stringy meat texture. There’s a big difference!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
At this point the meat is ready to be frozen for later, or served, mixed with your choice of sauce.
To serve, put it in a slow cooker, with a sauce, and let it heat on low for about 2 hours.
