  1. Just tried this on a big pork shoulder and it worked like a charm! So glad you shared this idea.

    Just to let you know though, the meat does not have to be hot for this to work. Ours was on the cold side as it had been in the fridge because it was too late to do this last night. We heated it slightly on the grill, before shredding, but it was definitely not hot.

    Thanks again for sharing, and please do more videos.

  2. Love the video – shows just how easy this is to do!! Thank you 🙂 I’ll be using it when I make pulled pork…have to try the chicken too for that tortilla soup!!!

  3. Great idea!! However, I don’t have a stand mixer, actually have not used a stand mixer in over 25 years. Would a hand mixer with one or two open beaters work (the ones that do not have a post down the middle)? It is a heavy duty model. Pulled pork is a strong on this weeks menu and might just try my hand mixer with one beater.

      1. Connie, and Christy: It will work with a hand mixer and regular beaters. I’ve always wondered whether it would, and I made Orange Pork in the crock pot today, and decided I was going to try it. I don’t have a paddle for either of my Sunbeams.

        I have my Aunt Ruth’s old Sunbeam stand mixer, (and I’d have my mothers’ Sunbeam, but for my own folly). I generally use the Sunbeam hand mixer instead of the stand mixer as it’s a lot lighter for me to handle and carry in and out from/to the garage-one of the major reasons why I don’t have the Kitchen Aid stand mixer I’ve always wanted: no space, too heavy at my age, and I don’t bake and cook like I used to. so let that dream go.

        The Sunbeam hand mixer doesn’t start out really low-more like 2nd gear, or 1.5, but it did work well. I will keep doing it that way. Just not with a white t-shirt on-unless I put an apron on.

  4. Great idea! I’m going to buy a boneless pork butt, put it in the slow cooker and shred the heck out of it! Then I’m going to divide it up and put it in the freezer for at least 3 meals. I’m getting into the freezer cooking thing.

    As I said, this was great, but what I really want to know is WHAT IS YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE? I think you were probably “just born that way”(like Lady GaGa) but maybe you could share just a little of what you do.

  5. My goodness! All of us are looking for time savers. Woohoo! Congratulations on the great video! Visual learners are doing the happy dance. Thank you!

  6. How did you ever guess that you could do that. That’s gonna save me oodles of time in the kitchen, besides the meat looks better than when I shred it by hand. thanks for sharin’ your tips with us.
