Pulled Pork #Recipe #Lush #Irresistible

I made five of these for Oscars Christening which went down a storm, so I was going to call it "Oscars Pulled Pork"... but that just sounds weird. I have made this countless times, everyone asks for the recipe and everyone likes it different ways. One thing is for sure its lush and if you're a veggie watch out.

It uses Pork Shoulder which isn't a very popular part and therefore  quite cheap,
Its also REALLY easy to make and goes far too, so excellent for feeding a lot of people.

  • 2kg Shoulder of Pork, the one pictured was only £6.63
  • Oil for greasing
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Whole Grain Mustard
  • 200ml White Wine Vinegar
  • 250ml Cider -but I used Crabbies as always have it in. 
  • 3 Onions finely sliced
  • 1 large Tray, 1 piece of grease proof paper and tin foil.
Depending on your tastes, you could add some cloves, garlic and or chilli flakes. Also alter accordingly with ingredients and cooking time if the Pork shoulder is bigger.

Preheat the oven to 170C/340F/Gas 3

Oil the tray bottom and place the Pork shoulder on top, then massage some oil into the Pork with some salt, pepper and mustard.

Cover the Pork Shoulder with the sliced onion and then pour over the White wine vinegar and Cider...or Crabbies!

Place the piece of grease proof paper on top of the Pork and cover with tin foil tucking in tightly around the edges; I used 3 pieces. Then roast in the oven for 3 hours.

Remove the paper and foil and roast for another 1 hour. You can caramelise the onions more by leaving it in the oven for longer if you wish.

Remove the skin/fat off the top - you can make crackling with it but I just bin it normally. Then "Pull" the pork with 2 forks, by pulling in opposite directions and shredding the meat. DONE!

End of the night and had fed 12 people!

Serve with buns, coleslaw and BBQ sauce but some people like it with stuffing and apple sauce....have one of each.

As an idea for Oscars Christening it would have been £700 for a hog roast but I fed 100 people for under £70! That included the Pork Shoulders, Buns, 3 trays of stuffing, a vat of coleslaw, BBQ sauce, Apple sauce and some other crisps and nibbles. It wasn't too much hassle either. I just prepared the Pork shoulders the night before and bunged it in the oven in the morning, got glammed up and went off to the Christening. It was ready by the time the Christening was over, the venue was 5 minutes from our house so me and the brother collect them and got there before some guests.

Love this pic from the Christening, its like "I did it!"

Get cracking!
