After waxing lyrical about the wonders of slow cookery, I thought it only fair to add another variation on the wildly popular Pulled Pork recipe I shared with you a few months ago.
This is something you can chuck together really quickly and will make you a hero at home! So far, I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like Pulled Pork (aside from non-pork/meat eaters) and I don’t think I want to!
Top tip / Cheat – you don’t need to make the sauce. Of course, I would rather you did, but if you want, just use some from a bottle – you will need around 2 cups in total!
1 pork shoulder, skin removed
2 large onions sliced
Sauce (Optional recipe!)
Approx 150ml ketchup
Approx 4 – 5 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Approx 2 tbsp smoked paprika
Approx 1 tbsp worcester sauce
Approx 4 – 6 tbsp dark brown sugar
To make the sauce, put all the ingredients into a pan and bring it to the boil. You may need to add some water at this point. Keep tasting and adding more sugar, paprika or vinegar as needed. You want it to be a thick gloopy sauce and all the flavours to mingle together. I boiled it for about 10 mins in total – adding a little water now and then.
Put the shoulder of pork into the slow cooker top of the sliced onions, cover with half of the bbq sauce and leave on low all day.
When you get in, drain most of the liquid and shred the pork. Put back in the slow cooker with another cup of sauce and heat through.
Done. Yep. Honest. It really is that simple!
