Okay, so there’s not much to say about this recipe. There’s not much you can say because well, your mouth fills up with drool too quickly.
My mom got an awesome deal on a huge pork shoulder so we decided to cook it up on her birthday weekend. We used an 8 pound roast and doubled this recipe. Sadly there was little to no leftovers. Again, no pictures. I’m getting really frustrated with the loaner camera I have borrowed hence the lack of pictures. Sorry Guys. I should start a donation fund for a new camera, huh?
Pulled Pork Sandwiches, from Simply Recipes
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 6 garlic cloves, peeled
- 1 pickled jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
- 2 teaspoons of Chipotle chile powder
- 1 Tbsp tomato paste
- 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 3/4 cup distilled white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 bay leaf
- 3 lbs of pork butt shoulder roast, trimmed of excess fat
- Hamburger buns
- Purée all of the sauce ingredients (everything except the bay leaf, the pork and the buns) in a blender until smooth. If you have extra time, marinate the pork in the sauce overnight or for several hours before cooking.
- Put sauce, bay leaf, and pork into a large pot and add 1 quart of water. Bring mixture to a boil and simmer, covered, turning frequently, for 2 hours or until the meat pulls apart easily with a fork.
- Remove from heat and cool pork in the sauce. When cool, remove the pork from the sauce and shred into small pieces. Set aside.
- Reduce the sauce by two thirds. Add the pork back to the sauce. Salt to taste. Remove bay leaf before serving. Serve hot over open-face hamburger buns.
Serves 6 to 8.
