Recipe for My Famous Crock-Pot Pulled Pork.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

I've actually been fairly on task the last couple of days so I don't really have anything substantial to post about (unless you all care to hear about realism/anti-realism debates and the Natural Ontological Attitude).  That being the case I thought I would present to you my recipe for crock-pot pulled pork.

Items you need:
6 pound pork roast (I usually use a shoulder butt with the bone in)
6 cups of chicken or beef stock (I just use OXO or something like that)
1/2 cup of a sweet red wine
3 sprigs of mint
5 springs of dill
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
1/2 a lime
1 tablespoon of nutmeg
3 tablespoons of salt
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of ground black pepper

Put stock, wine, mint, dill, soy sauce, nutmeg, salt, sugar, and black pepper into the crockpot.  Squeeze out all the juice from the lime half.  Add to crockpot.  Put pork into crockpot.  Set on low and cook for 8 to 12 hours (the longer the more tender and flavorful).  Then remove the pork from the crockpot put in large bowl.  Use a fork to shred the pork.  Add 1/2 to 1 cup (depending on taste) of liquid into the shredded pork to add flavor and juiciness.  Serve while hot with either applesauce or BBQ sauce on top.  It's good with macaroni and cheese, potato salad, beans, and/or rice.  It's also good on a sandwich with a sweet BBQ sauce.
