Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

3 lb boneless pork shoulder roast
2 tbsp chili powder
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup water

In a small bowl combine the chili powder, salt, and cayenne; rub over the roast; set aside.

In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, heat the oil; add the meat and brown on all sides.  This will take about 6 to 8 minutes.  Remove the browned meat to a slow cooker or crockpot.

Add the water to the skillet you browned the meat in and stir to scrape up the browned bits; add to the slow cooker.  Place lid on cooker, cover, and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 4 to 5 hours.

Remove the meat to a cutting board and allow to rest 10 to 15 minutes.  Shred into bite-size pieces and season with the broth in the cooker.

Serves 6 to 8
