Author: Carmen Sakurai


  • 1 onion peeled and sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves sliced thin
  • 1 cup chicken stock or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt adjust to taste
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 3 to 3 1/2 pound pork shoulder/butt trimmed of visible fat


  • Place onions and garlic in the crock pot and place the pork on top.
  • Add brown sugar, salt, paprika, Worcestershire sauce, cinnamon, honey, and black pepper over the pork, then pour in the chicken stock.
  • Cover and cook until the pork is fork tender, about 6 to 8 hours on high or 8 to 10 hours on low.
  • Turn off the crock pot and carefully move the pork to a cutting board. Pour the liquid mixture through the strainer and set the liquid aside. Return the solids from the liquid into the crock pot.
  • Use 2 forks to shred the meat into bite-sized pieces and return the shredded meat to the crock pot. Pour liquid into the crock pot 1/4 cup at a time until the pork is just moistened. Taste and season with salt as needed.
