It actually was the best ever, considering it was my first time making pulled pork.
Or any pork for that matter. All kids of firsts on this blog!
I used this recipe for “the best pulled pork in a crock pot” by 100 days of real food. It could not have been easier. I just placed the onion in the bottom, put the tied up pork shoulder on top and then poured the marinade over. Cooked it on low for ~8 hours and it split open like buttah at the slightest nudge.
The only change I made was in reducing the amount of sugar – I used 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup coconut sugar instead of the 1/2 cup honey called for (only because I didn’t want to use that a much of my local raw fancy schmancy honey on this).
Served with corn and baked potatoes.
It doesn’t photograph well, but holy hell it was the best. So rich. Sooooo tender. For an ex-vegetarian, I have a lot to eat to make up for lost time.
