1) Allow pork roast to defrost in refrigerator (24-48 hours) or in a ziplock bag with cool running water for a few hours. *not entirely necessary, I’ve added frozen roast to the slow cooker and just cooked it a little longer!

2) Remove pork roast from vac-seal bag and pat dry, then set in slow cooker and lightly cover in olive oil, sea salt and pepper

3) Set slow cooker on low for 8 hours. (some slow cookers, high works fine too)

4) Add quartered onions and some garlic cloves around the roast, pour a cider or beer over to 1-5 inches around roast (or barely covering the flatter leg roast)

optional: add apple slices or orange quarters for flavor,

5) add Spice Rub or more salt and pepper on top

6) let cook 6-8 hours on low (or high if your slow cooker doesn’t run too hot)

7) 1 hour before done - remove from slow cooker and pull apart meat in a dish or bowl. Remove bone and any excess fat. Return meat to slow cooker juices. Cook 1 more hour before serving.
