Pulled Pork in Crockpot with a roast AND left over pork loin?
I'm doing a pulled pork (shoulder or butt) in the crockpot for sandwiches but also have leftover pork loins that were already cooked, cut and put in the freezer. Think I can just add these 1/2 way through my process with the roast? like maybe just 4 hrs on low. I do hate to waste such a good cut on this but I would rather use it up then look at it every time I open the freezer.
Because it doesn't have as much fat in it, the loin will take much longer to break down and will require some intervention on your part. I just used a pork loin roast for carnitas and it wasn't as good as pork shoulder because of the lack of fat, but it definitely wasn't bad. What about adding the pieces of pork to a soup, quiche, or braised greens dish?
I think I will just pick up another roast (this one is small) for the pulled pork and save the loin leftovers for a great soup or other dish.
