I've been wanting to try pulled pork since I saw a video tute of it a couple months back, but had dismissed it since it tends to require 12 oven hours.
This recipe however required only a crockpot, and I swore I remembered seeing about ten of the crafty buggers hanging about TOO's house.
And all right, one working pot, one broken, and one that turns out to be a rice cooker and not a crockpot at all. But still! Exciting! Crockpot virgin, no less.
So I sliced up the onion to line the bottom of the pot and then placed the lovingly washed and patted-dry shoulder on top. Dry flav-stuff pressed onto the flesh (mmmmm flesh) and then vinegar mix drizzled over top. Plugged it in and did a little dance around the kitchen.
Ridiculous. I turned it off and only turned it back on upon my return from the Spooky Men's Chorale. A 9am cooking sitch I can actually deal with for a Saturday morning.
Pulling it apart was deliciously satisfying
I don't think you are imagining just how good this was. Imagine more. Then make it - you know you want to. And definitely slap it in some white bread buns with coleslaw.
I wasn't shy with the cayenne, but you could adjust it for however you like. I made dinner for the week with the leftovers, stuffed spuds with the pork, creamed corn, onion and cheese. This might be the first time I have not ruined a piece of roast-meat (Yep. Can't cook a roast. Sue me). Not that it counts as roasting, but still! Win!
