Impossibly Easy Sweet Pulled Pork

“This has become a staple in our home. We absolutely LOVE this pork. There is a restaurant chain here in Utah called Costa Vida and this is as close as we have come to replicating the sweet pork they make there for the burritos/salads/etc.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over high heat--we prefer to use Cast-Iron for searing, so if you have one, use it.
  2. Rub the Salt and Pepper all over the roast.
  3. Sear the Roast in the skillet for 1-2 min per side.
  4. Toss the seared Roast in your crock-pot.
  5. sprinkle the Brown Sugar over the roast and then dump the salsa over the top of that.
  6. Cook on Low for 10-12 hours. You will know when the roast is done, because it will shred easily with a couple of forks.
  7. Shred the pork right there in your crockpot and mix it all up with the drippings and other liquids.
  8. Serve as a filling for tacos/burritos or on top of salads.
