Slow Cooker Size:

  • 6- quart or larger


  • In a large skillet set to medium-high heat, add the cooking oil. When the oil is hot, brown the pork shoulder on all sides.
  • Add the onion down in the slow cooker. Add the browned pork on top of the onions.
  • Sprinkle over the salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano,
  • and celery salt.
  • Add the liquid smoke, and chicken broth (or water) around the pork.
  • Cover and cook on high for 7 hours or low for 10.
  • When the cooking time is done, remove the pork on to a plate, shred with two forks and discard fat.
  • Preheat oven to 425┬░
  • Add meat to each bun bottom and top with the Sargento┬« Cheese, I use 2 slices per sandwich. Add the tops to the sandwiches. Wrap each sandwich in foil. Place the wrapped sandwiches on a cookie sheet. Place in oven for 20 minutes, or until the cheese had melted and the bun is toasty. Serve and enjoy!
