Pulled pork seems to be everywhere. From high end places to fast food joints, plenty have a pulled pork option on the menu.

There are plenty of recipes out there with smokers and barbecuing required. My recipe uses a slow cooker (AKA crock pot) and can be left unattended for most of the day. Even the cooking part is just “dump in the pot” and the ingredients are standard stuff. A word on the balsamic vinegar though, use the cheap stuff. You won’t get any benefit by the time it’s cooked down.

Pork shoulder after 12 hours in the slow cooker

The pulled pork is great on it’s own, but this recipe wraps it in a crisp burrito shell for the contrast of crunch tortilla and tender meat. Perfect for dinner or lunch.
