I bought a four pound pork shoulder at Central Market for $11.41, and, adapting several recipes from the old Internet, came up with this one. I used a lot of spices (cumin, chili powder, paprika), garlic, and Texas oranges that were on sale. I cooked that sucker for about twelve hours.
Slow cooked pork (especially a tough cut like shoulder) may be the perfect meat for me. I tend to be paranoid, and thus overcook meat. However, pulled pork just gets better and better the longer you cook it! Twelve hours resulted in a tender, falling apart hunk of meat. I had this salad for dinner–chopped lettuce, pulled pork, red bell peppers, orange slices, and a drizzle of Hal’s Hot Love. And I have four more portions of same for lunch this week!
I will definitely make this again.
