EXCELLENT! I read many reviews and I agree--extremely simple & tasty! I used a 3.6lb Pork butt, 2t plain sea salt(that was all I could find, even tried TJ's), and 1+1/4t liquid smoke (hickory flavor). I cooked it on high for 4 hours, turned over and added 1/2 of a med. sweet onion that I had in the frig. Cooked it 1 more hour on high then switched it to low for the duration. After 7 hours total, the pork looked cooked--I checked it with a thermometer and it was done indeed. I took out the pork (which was falling apart) and shredded (an easy task!) then placed it back in the crock pot and added 2/3 head of chopped green cabbage and a chopped sweet onion, which I steamed for 5 minutes on the stove (probably would've skipped, but thought we were going to eat sooner). Back on low for about another 1-2 hours to simmer in its own juices. Somewhere during this time I ladled out the juices into a liquid measuring cup, placed in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, and skimmed off the fat, and added a bit of water so that I returned the same amount of liquid back to the crock pot that I'd removed. The pork was so tender succulent and we LOVED this recipe! Served with rice and a Sesame Cabbage Salad found elsewhere on the internet. We like spicy so added a dab of Sriracha hot chili sauce. EXCELLENT! Also pairs well with Fire Rock Pale Ale from the Kona Brewing Co. What a spectacular feast! :) Thanks for the recipe!!!
