Slow cooked pulled pork

11 Jul
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt, plus more as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (4-1/2- to 5-pound) boneless or bone-in pork shoulder, twine or netting removed
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce (optional)
Method
  1. Place the onions and garlic in an even layer in the casserole dish and pour in the stock or broth.
  2. Combine the sugar, chili powder, measured salt, cumin, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. Pat the pork dry with paper towels.
  4. Rub the spice mixture all over the pork and place the meat on top of the onions and garlic.
  5. Bring to boil on the cooker.
  6. Cover and place in the oven at a low heat (gas mark 2).
  7. Cook until the pork is fork tender, about 2-3 hours minimum.
  8. Pour the onion mixture from the slow cooker through the strainer and return the solids to the slow cooker. Set the strained liquid aside.
  9. If the pork has a bone, remove and discard it. Using 2 forks, shred the meat into bite-sized pieces, discarding any large pieces of fat.
  10. Return the shredded meat to the slow cooker, add the barbecue sauce, if using, and mix to combine.
  11. Taste and season with salt as needed.

Serve with coleslaw and buttery corn on the cob. Yum!
