4lb pork (shoulder or Boston butt are suggested)
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup coconut water
Optional 1/4 cup water
- Mix all spices in a bowl (brown sugar, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder).
Rub spice mix over the pork covering each side.
Add apple cider vinegar and coconut water to a slow cooker. (You can also add an additional 1/4 cup of water if liquid is too shallow in cooker.)
Place pork in the slow cooker.
Cook on low for 8 hours.
Shred pork and use in your favorite dish!
Make it your own
We decided to make this pork into sliders and tacos and paired it all with a Bright and Sunny cocktail (find the recipe for this easy and light cocktail here!) – with an island theme of course! Place the pork inside of Hawaiian rolls with your favorite barbecue sauce and pickles for an easy snack or dinner.
Our tacos take a bit of extra work, but are worth the reward! Place a portion of shredded pork on a soft taco and top with red onion, pineapple, jalapeños and garnish with Southwest ranch and cilantro. These tacos pack a spicy kick with a beautiful sweetness from the pineapple and Southwest ranch to cool the tacos down.
Moana said it best – That Is Good Pork!
