  1. With a sharp knife, make 8 small cuts into the pork shoulder and shove the garlic inside the small incisions.
  2. Coat the outside of the roast with Tony’s Spice N’ Herbs Seasoning.
  3. In a cast iron skillet (or in a slow cooker, if you have the browning functionality), heat to medium-high heat and add in the vegetable oil.
  4. Once hot, brown the roast for 5 minutes on each side.
  5. Set the slow cooker to low for 6 hours and let the roast slowly cook down.
  6. Once the 6 hours are up, gently remove the roast from the crock post to a cutting board (it will be falling apart).
  7. Shred the roast, discarding any fat.
  8. Meanwhile prepare the gravy, combining Tony’s Instant Brown Gravy Mix with 1 cup of water. After combined, bring to a boil and then simmer for 3-5 minutes, until desired consistency. Set aside to cool.
  9. Line a baking sheet with foil and spread shredded roast on the baking sheet.
  10. Optional: Sprinkle the roast with Tony’s More Spice Seasoning for an extra kick.
  11. Turn on your oven’s broil setting to high and let heat up for at least 3 minutes.
  12. Add the pork to the oven to broil for 5-8 minutes, watching carefully until the edges of the shredded pork are starting to crisp and turn dark brown.
  13. Let the roast rest for a few minutes before topping with gravy and serving with Tony’s Creole Butter & Herb Rice Mix and steamed broccoli.
