Slow Cooker Garlic Mojo Pork

I LOVE this recipe! My favorite thing about a roast? Leftovers = multiple meals! Serve it with mashed sweet potatoes, over a salad or make pork sliders…the possibilities are many!

When it comes to shredded pork, BBQ sauce may come to mind. That's a great stand by, but you're going to love this mojo sauce. It's a classic Cuban sauce with citrus and garlic making it the perfect pairing for pork. I like to make extra sauce to use with shrimp, salmon or chicken. It's amazing!

I also love any meal cooked in a slow cooker. It makes food prep, cooking and clean up a breeze. Slow cooking pork shoulder results in juicy, tender, fall apart shredded pork. If you have time, I recommend the full 8 hours vs. the quicker 4 hours. The slower the process, the better results you'll have when it comes to pork roasts.

If you need a new slow cooker, here's my favorite one. They are great to have in the kitchen, especially with busy days!
