There are very few meats that look as appetizing to me as a hot-out-of-the-slow-cooker pork shoulder. This sage pulled pork is not an exception! The taste is incredible and I never tire of the soft, melt in your mouth texture. A good pulled pork is like the little black dress of the kitchen, you can eat it with pretty much anything!
Cooking tips: You might have to adjust the cooking time in accordance with the weight of the pork shoulder you use. For approximately 4 pounds, the cooking time was 10 hours on low heat in my slow cooker. I don’t know if the heat varies that much between different slow cookers, but in any case the meat is done cooking when you can easily pull the meat apart with a fork.
Substitutions: Sage is one of my favorite dried herbs of the moment, but you can easily replace it with herbes de Provence, oregano, parsley, or rosemary.
Serving suggestions: you can top the sage pulled pork with chopped red cabbage, avocado, scallions, and cilantro. The taste is delicious and the effect is striking! Pulled pork goes very well also with a side of cauliflower rice and a salad mix.
