Best pulled pork to date

It's been a long long time since I have posted, but trying to get restarted again (not going to bore the world with the details of my life).

I am a great fan of pulled pork and have tried a few, this one is definitely worth a mention. Adapted from this recipe, definitely worth a try.

What you need:
  • 1 pork shoulder 
  • 3 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp English mustard
  • 10 tbsp apple cider vinegar (ACV)
  • 3 tbsp of honey
  • 4 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
  • 1 tube of tomato puree (150g)
  • Ground pepper
What to do:
  1. Turn on your slow cooker to auto (if your slow cooker does have this function, cook on low for around 8-9 hours)
  2. Roughly chop the garlic and throw in
  3. Add the ACV, honey, mustard and garlic to the slow cooker and give it a good mix 
  4. Mix all the try ingredients and then rub into the pork shoulder and then put the pork into the slow cooker
  5. Cook for at least 7 hours or until the meat is all falling off
  6. Shred the meat and return to the slow cooker with all that lovely liquid
I made in my slow cooker, but you also easily make in the oven too (pot with a lid, or tight foil cover). Probably around 130 for 6 hours, depending on the type of pot you use.

Being the cave-woman that I am, I would quite happily chomp on this straight out of the pot. Also good served with a crusty roll, or mash. Maybe even some rice and greens. Leftovers were in the freezer and had been consumed for lunch too.
