15 min 7 h 7 h 15 min 8

Ingredients


3 tbsp Paprika
1 tbsp Sea salt
1 tsp Black pepper
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 tsp Garlic powder
1/2 tsp, ground Thyme, dried
1/2 cup Honey
1/4 cup Red wine vinegar
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 medium Yellow onion (peeled, cut in half)
1 1/3 kg Pork shoulder, whole, lean (cut in half)

Instructions


1. In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together the first six ingredients (all of the spices) with a fork.

2. Pour in the honey, vinegar, and olive oil and stir to form a paste.

3. Place the onion in the bottom of the slow cooker. Top it with the 2 pieces of pork and then pour the honey paste over all sides of the pork pieces. It’s okay if some of it (or a lot of it) just drips down to the bottom.

4. Turn the slow cooker on to low and cook for 7 to 8 hours or until the meat is tender enough to be easily shredded with a fork.

5. Serve warm with fixings like homemade coleslaw and cornbread. My husband also likes his dipped in a little hot sauce. Refrigerate or freeze the leftovers.

Enjoy!
