  1. Cut the pork roast into large chunks. Season generously with the Cajun seasoning. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, and brown on all sides. Remove from the skillet, and transfer to a slow cooker.
  2. Add the onion and garlic to the skillet, and cook for a few minutes until tender. Stir in the water scraping the bottom to include all of the browned pork bits from the bottom of the pan, then pour the whole mixture into the slow cooker with the pork. Stir in liquid smoke flavoring.
  3. Cover, and cook on High for 6 hours, or until meat is falling apart when pierced with a fork. Remove pieces of pork from the slow cooker, and shred. Return to the slow cooker to keep warm while serving.

This recipe was an unbelievable hit at my daughter's graduation party. I did a trial batch with Sweet Babys Rays, and my hubby and I were not impressed. They were sampling "Cattlemen's" BBQ sauc...

Overall, very good if you like pulled pork. I didn't bother browning the pork first though. I seasoned it with "Cajun Seasoning Mix" from this site and added it to the slow cooker along with a b...

This was really good (granted I adjusted it to suit my own preferences)- the meat came out very tender. The meat probably isn't flavorful enough to stand on its own and so should be made into sa...

I really think this is a 5 star recipe. I had to change it a little bit, but only because I could not find a boneless pork roast at my grocer. So I followed the recipe except that my meat was no...

I wouldn't dare ruin this with barbeque sauce, but I did feel the liquid needed more flavoring. Instead of the water, I used beer and chicken broth. I also threw in some pepperoncini peppers wit...

Delicous! Cooked 8 hours on low, then added 1 bottle of gourmet BBQ sauce to cook another 2 hours. Everyone agreed as good as any BBQ restaurant! Served with Waldorf salad- perfect side with swe...

Excellent recipe! Tastes as if I smoked it on a smoker all day! This dish is becoming a regular in my house. Thanks!

It needed more flavor so I added more liquid smoke, some honey & bbq sauce. It also needs to simmer longer for a better flavor
