Slow Crockpot Pulled Pork

My hubby loves pulled pork sandwiches.  

This is a very versatile item to have at home.  Either served as a burger or a sandwich, add to pasta or go with rice.  All equally delicious.

One of the easiest way is to use a bottle of BBQ sauce and a can of tomato sauce and voila you get a yummy dish but since I try as much as possible not to use processed condiments in my food, so I needed more work but hey, if you are making a big pot, I guess it is worth the effort.  After all, this is home cooked.

To save time and energy, I used the slow crockpot to do the job.  Easy Peasy.



What you need:

2kg pork shoulder
2 tsp minced garlic
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 dried bay leaves
8 tomatoes with seeds and skin removed, chopped finely
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/8 cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 can of stout beer
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp worchestershire sauce
2 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp cayenne pepper

Method:

In a 5- to 6-quart crockpot, combine all ingredients together.

Sear pork in a hot pan and add pork to crockpot and turn to coat completely.

Cover and cook on medium until meat is pull-apart tender, about 8 hours.

Transfer pork to a bowl; shred with two forks. Return pork to pot, and toss with sauce.

Discard bay leaves.

Serve pulled pork with bun and salad.



Enjoy.
