South Carolina-Style Mustard Barbecued Pork Recipe
If you’re a fan of South Carolina-style mustard-sauced barbecue, this simple pulled pork is the recipe for you. Start it first thing in the morning and let the slow cooker do the work for you.
Yield: 10-12 servings
Total time: 8 hours and 35 minutes
1?3 cup of firmly packed light brown sugar
2½ teaspoons of table salt
1½ teaspoons of garlic powder
1½ teaspoons of paprika
1 teaspoon of onion powder
½ teaspoon of ground red pepper
1 4- to 5-pound bone-in pork shoulder roast (Boston butt), trimmed
1 cup of yellow mustard
1?3 cup of honey
1?4 cup of apple cider vinegar
1½ teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
Stir together the brown sugar and the next five ingredients. Rub the mixture over the pork roast. Place the roast in a lightly greased 6-quart slow cooker.
Whisk together the yellow mustard and remaining three ingredients. Pour the mixture over the roast.
Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours (or on high 4-6 hours) or until the meat shreds easily with a fork. Let the pork stand 15 minutes then shred it with two forks, removing any large pieces of fat. Stir until the sauce is incorporated.
