Blackstrap Molasses and Sriracha pulled pork

Thank you Pinterest! Yum! I served this on whole wheat buns and everyone loved it! What an easy recipe that makes your house smell delicious while it is cooking all day!


Spice rub for the pork~

I let my pork sit overnight with the rub on it.
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp smoked paprika*smells sooo good*
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp salt
dash of cayenne pepper

1 yellow onion, sliced thin
3-4 lb pork shoulder

Put the onions in the bottom of the crock pot and cup up the pork into 2 inch pieces and trim off the excess fat. Place the pork on top of the onions.

Sauce~ 1/2 c tomato paste
1/2 c apple cider vinegar
1/4 c blackstrap molasses
2 tsp Srircha hot sauce*more if you like spicy*
1 tsp ground mustard
1 tsp black pepper
Whisk all together and pour 1/2 over the pork in the slow cooker.  Keep 1/2 sauce for later.  Cook for 8 hours on low.  When the pork is ready drain and reserve the juice that it has cooked in all day.  Shred the pork with 2 forks and put it back in the crock pot. Stir in the reserved sauce and add some of the liquid for juiciness.  So good! I will make double the sauce next time.  We like out BBQ a little more saucy....Enjoy~
