Zippy Shredded Pork

The other day I got the most touching comment from an anonymous reader about a recent Crockpot BBQ Pulled Pork post...

Every Monday I make dinner for a family who has a child in the hospital battling leukemia ~ hospital is 2 hours away from home. Mom pretty much lives at the hospital while Dad is holding down the fort with his 2 other sons (both teenagers) and his father. Always looking for new and easy ideas that fit in with my work schedule and will keep everyone happy. Brought this over tonite with fresh rolls, coleslaw and homemade mac and cheese. A HUGE HUGE HUGE success and so simple ~ cooked 2 pork loins on low all day in the crockpot. Delicious. Sweet aby Rays is our favorite, too. Thank you!

Well Anonymous, first of all, God bless you and your heart for people. And, secondly, thank you so much for sharing your story with me... it made my day. Thirdly, this post is dedicated to you. It too is quick, easy and an awesome use of that time saving crockpot!

I found this new spin on pulled pork in my Slow-Cooker Recipes Cookbook that I have been telling ya'all I wanted to start using a bit more... and I am glad I did!

This recipe is soo easy and sooo tasty.

I started with a 4 lb loin, but I cut up half of it for various marinades and such (that I will be sharing on Sweet Jeanette in June).

With the other half, I popped a crockpot liner in my Smartpot and put the other half of my loin in... salt (Lawry's) and peppered it...

And then flipped it fat side up and salt and peppered it again.

Then I just grabbed my favorite salsa and a can of chilies and poured them over the top.

Then I put a lid on it...

And set my Smartpot on high for 6 hours (or low for 8).

After it was done cooking, I took two forks and that baby just fell apart ;)

Now we had sandwiches that night...

Put enough in the fridge for lunch the next day...

And froze enough for lunch on another day... Mommy score!

SOLD! I am assuming you can do the same thing with a beef roast????

Looks delicious! Thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to following your blog for more! I'm a crock-addict.

This recipe looks awesome! I'm wanting to use my crock-pot more...so this will be perfect.

Wow! your anonymous comment made my day also! What a wonderful person!
And your recipe....is mouth watering:)

Sounds good and yummy spicy!! What would we do without the slow cooker! Have a great weekend, Cris. :-)
