I realized recently how much slow cooked, shredded meat we eat around here. It’s just so easy to make, and my family loves it.
Whether it’s chicken, beef, or pork, I know I can slow cook it and shred it and however I serve it, no one will complain about dinner. This Slow Cooker Cuban Mojo Pork was no exception.
In fact, I think it’s the most flavorful slow cook pork we’ve tried in quite awhile. And it’s so easy too. You literally just put everything in the slow cooker and walk away.
We often have shredded pork in tacos and burritos, but I served this Cuban-style pork with rice and a side of black beans, and it was so good! I think serving it with rice really allowed all the fabulous flavors of the pork to shine through.
We’ll definitely be having it in tacos or burritos soon though, since it’s destined to become a family favorite. This pork would also be a great base for Cuban sandwiches!
