  1. Place pork butt in a slow cooker with the fattier side facing upwards. Pour water and orange juice into the slow cooker. Season pork and liquid with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix garlic and mustard together in a small bowl; spread over the top of the pork butt. Sprinkle onion over the pork.
  3. Cook on Low, turning the butt a few times, until the meat falls apart easily when pulled with a fork, 6 to 8 hours.
