  • 5 pounds boneless pork shoulder
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth


Cut roast in half or to fit your slow cooker. Combine sugar and spices and rub into each piece of meat, then place in the slow cooker. Pour broth over meat. Set slow cooker to low and cover. Cook for 6 to 8 hours, or until the roast is fork tender. Limit peeking beneath the lid, to maintain heat.

When done, remove the roast to a cutting board. Pull apart with forks or chop fine with a cleaver.
