Pulled Pork Cups

I had a hunk of pork that I needed to use so I decided to make quick pulled pork. I used Sarah Fragraso’s ‘Easy Pulled Pork’ recipe as a starter then added my flair. Enjoy!!

Pulled Pork Cups

  • 6 ish lb pork butt roast
  • 1 red, 1 white onions sliced
  • 3-5 slices of bacon

Dry Rub

  • 4 tbsps chili powder
  • 2 tbsps cumin
  • 2 tbsps onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 2 tsps sea salt

Cups & Toppings

  • Cabbage, Romaine or butter lettuce leaves – leave full like ‘cups’
  • Sliced Banana Peppers
  • Mustard Aioli
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all dry rub ingredients together.  Rub the entire roast with the dry rub (you should use it all – really rub it in there!.)  Place a layer of onions and bacon on the bottom of your slow cooker.  Place the roast on top.  Put the rest of the sliced onions on top of the slow cooker.  NO LIQUID NECESSARY!  Cook the roast on high for 5-6 hours and then turn down to low for another 3-4 hours or until the roast is literally falling apart and easy to shred.

Take a ‘cup’, include pork in cup, top with mustard aioli and banana peppers. ENJOY!

Side note: the next day, I took some of the roast, warmed it in a pan, tossed two eggs on it and scrambled it up. OMG. Seriously, SO GOOD. This week for lunches, I’ll make the cups or top my salad with the pork. I will absolutely make this again.
