We miss going into Philadelphia to see live basketball games at the Wells Fargo Center. We always just split an order of popcorn or crab fries and save our money and appetite for a true Philly treat. Right after the game, we drive to straight to Tony Luke's, in South Philly, for some cheesesteaks and roast pork hoagies. The best!! And always worth the wait!
I love to recreate this roast pork at home, in my slow cooker. It is so easy! I just love slow cooking this pork with lots of garlic, rosemary and parsley! My house smells amazing and my boys can't wait for dinner. I love making this on a Sunday so that we can eat off of it all week. And this is the perfect recipe for a party as it feeds so many - and at such a low cost! You will love this easy Slow Cooker Roast Pork Sandwich recipe!! Get the taste of South Philly right in your own kitchen!
Slow Cooker Roast Pork Sandwiches
8 lb Pork Shoulder Butt Roast
1 whole garlic head, peeled
1 large bunch of rosemary, taken off the stem
1 large bunch of Italian parsley
Kosher salt and pepper
Mince up the garlic in a food processor.
Add rosemary and parsley to the food processor and whirl until it is all minced together into a garlic and herb rub.
Cut off the thick layer of fat from the pork and liberally salt and pepper all sides of the roast. It is a large piece of meat so it does need a lot of salt and pepper.
Spread the herb paste rub all over the roast. On all sides and using it all.
Put the roast into the slow cooker and cover. Cook all day. 9 to10 hours, until it pulls apart easily with a fork.
Take roast out of the slow cooker and shred with two forks.
Add shredded pork back into the slow cooker juices and serve on a roll with Provolone cheese. We love a sharp Provolone cheese with this.
Note: This is delicious and is traditionally served with broccoli rabe. We were out so I sautéed some spinach with olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes. I think that like this topping even more! Because it was so quick and easy!
During the fall season, who doesn't love an easy slow cooker recipe that everyone will love? I love this time of the year!
