Heavy Pot OR Crock Pot
4lbs.Pork shoulder roast or country-style ribs
2-3Tbsp.Montreal Steak Seasoning
2tsp.ground chili powder
Heat a skillet or cast iron dutch oven pot with the oil on medium-high heat. If using country-style ribs, cut up them into 2-3 inch squares. Liberally sprinkle pork with the Montreal steak seasoning.
Once the oil is almost smoking, brown the pork on all sides. Turn off heat. If using a slow cooker, transfer the meat to the pot before proceeding. If baking, preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Mix the Knorr container with the water and pour over the meat, or add the 2 cups of beef broth. Set the crockpot for 5-7 hours on low. If baking the roast place the pot in the preheated oven for 5 hours (checking at the 2.5 hour make to add more fluid if necessary.
The meat should be tender and easily separated when it is done. Before serving, remove the pork from the crockpot and separate it with two forks or just mash it with a fork. .
