This recipe is best done on the stovetop; you get the crispy bits similar to authentic. In the slow cooker, you wouldn't need to add much liquid; the meat will release a lot on its own. Look for pulled pork recipes specific to the slow cooker.

Pork works well because there's a lot of fat and it doesn't dry out. I usually shorten the time with a slow cooker, too.

Hope that helps.

We usually eat greens with pork.  I recently made Nom Nom Paleo's pressure cooker kale and carrots. We had it with carnitas, and a small serving of homemade applesauce. It's also good with eggs, topped with salsa and avocado.
