sous vide pulled pork in the crockpot .... can it be done?

jkling17 | Jan 25, 2012 04:33 AM

I cook pulled pork regularly, mostly in the crockpot but also occasionally in the oven, low and slow @ 225, until the meat reaches 200 degrees. A fair bit of fat and moisture is rendered out of the meat. After the bones are tossed, I'll often have only 1/2 the original weight left.

So I'm thinking that why not cook it in the crockpot, but wrapped airtight in a plastic bag (or some places sell the pork shoulder already in completely sealed packages.

Has anyone tried this out, or done it specifically in a sous vide machine? What were the results like?

Thanks!

Jeff
