Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 lb boneless pork shoulder 1.5 kg
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 lemon juice only
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4-6 tbsp greek spice rub

For the greek spice rub:

  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp ground rosemary
  • 2 tsp ground coriander cilantro
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 6 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 tsp dried thyme
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 tsp paprika
  • 3 tsp dried marjoram
  • 2 tsp sugar

Instructions

  • Combine the greek spice rub ingredients. This recipe makes more than you'll need for this pulled pork recipe. Store the leftovers in an airtight container. You can use it for all kinds of meat, in salads, or to season vegetables.
  • Trim any excess fat from pork shoulder if necessary. Rub the meat with 4-6 tbsp of the spice mixture and place it in a slow cooker. Top with minced garlic.
  •  In a small bowl, combine orange juice, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar. Pour the mixture over the meat and cook on low for 8 to 9 hours (or on high for 5 hours).
  • When the meat is fork tender and can be easily shredded take it out of the slow cooker and shred with two forks. Add as much as you like from the remaining liquid in the slow cooker to the shredded pork.
