Need a cheap and hearty way to feed a hungry family? This delicious but super easy pulled pork can be thrown together in minutes, frozen until needed, then slow cooked to perfection. Best of all, it feeds 8-10 people with a $5 cut of meat (but tastes so good that no one will ever know!)

Pulled pork is one of those recipes that always intimidated me.  Until, that is, I actually tried it and discovered not just how ridiculously easy it is to make, but how inexpensive it is to make a delicious, hearty meal for a crowd that even the pickiest eaters in the bunch will RAVE about!

The first time I made it I had planned to use pork shoulder (also known as Boston Butt), but the butcher at Publix was inexplicably out of all pork shoulders.  When I told her I was planning to make pulled pork, she recommended I use a picnic cut instead, which is one of the cheapest cuts of meat, but works just as well.  I was a little skeptical when I saw I could get a huge chunk of meat for just five dollars, but I decided to trust the butcher.  After all, she’s never steered me wrong before!

Well.  Let me just tell you that I have now made this easy freezer pulled pork recipe for a crowd several times, and it is always a huge hit!  My $5 chunk of meat easily feeds 8 people, with enough for seconds (and even some thirds!)  It is also a nice “cheater” freezer recipe that can be prepared ahead as part of a freezer cooking day, then frozen until needed.   Seriously, this one is a winner through and through.


This recipe can be started in the morning and ready to hit the table for dinner with little effort but a ton of flavor!

A slow cooker will do it every time. It has been one of my secrets for a long time.
