How to make it

  1. Remove the fat from the pork shoulder (you can ask your butcher to do this for you). Season the pork with salt and pepper then heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium to high heat. Brown the pork shoulder on all sides and transfer to your slow cooker.
  2. Add a jar of the Enchilada Cooking Sauce and a sliced onion, then cook on low for 6-8 hours until the meat pulls apart with a fork.
