Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with Orange Juice

Recipe by  

"'Discovered' this by accident when starting the pork butt about 10 p.m. one night (the butt was still partially frozen). Started with the basics, but decided to add the stone ground mustard and the orange juice on a whim. Husband loves it, so I must have been inspired."

Directions

  1. Place pork butt in a slow cooker with the fattier side facing upwards. Pour water and orange juice into the slow cooker. Season pork and liquid with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix garlic and mustard together in a small bowl; spread over the top of the pork butt. Sprinkle onion over the pork.
  3. Cook on Low, turning the butt a few times, until the meat falls apart easily when pulled with a fork, 6 to 8 hours.
  4. Remove pork from slow cooker; allow to sit until cool enough to handle. Trim away and discard any visible chunks of fat. Shred remaining pork into strands. Return shredded pork to the slow cooker; stir. Remove portions of pork from slow cooker with a slotted spoon to serve.

This was fantastic, I substituted two pork tenderloins I needed to use and since they were thawed they were done in about 5 hrs on low. Something with the orange juice really produces a nice modes flavor and very tender meat. I tried this with boneless chicken breast, just as good.

The orange juice makes this recipe. You can't really taste the orange if just adds a nice bright touch which is nice for use with so many other flavors.
