How to Choose the Right Cut of Meat for Your Slow Cooker Braise
Slow cooker braising is a great way to get the most flavor out of your meat. But how do you know which cut of meat is best for slow cooker braising? Whether you’re looking for pork, beef, or chicken, there are certain cuts that will give you the best results when cooking in a slow cooker.
Pork shoulder is the most common meat to be braised in a slow cooker. The leanness and fat content of pork allow it to withstand long hours of cooking without drying out. Pork shoulder roast or center-cut pork loin are two of the most popular cuts for slow cooker braising.
The shoulder roast will break down with long hours of simmering in your slow cooker resulting in a tender, juicy meal that is perfect for pulled pork sandwiches or tacos. Center-cut loin will give you tenderloins and chops that are perfect for shredded pork sandwiches, carnitas tacos, omelets, and more.
