2012 meat #trend? Pulled pork!

Posted in Meat Concepts.

Pulled pork shoulder is an American tradition, but still very unknown in Europe. Basically it is a big joint of meat rubbed with spices and put in the oven for a couple of hours. After cooking the meat only has to be pulled and put on a bun with some sauce.

The following video will give you an example how to make pulled pork.

The conventional method for cooking pork shoulder is low and slow, but this recipe is really low and slow – like 210 degrees °F (100 °C) low and 12 hours slow. The result is an incredibly soft and succulent piece of pork, perfect for pulling.

 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 3 1/2 lb pork shoulder roast
  • 3-4 tbsp dry rub
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
  • barbecue sauce as needed
