Have I mentioned my hubby’s a fabulous cook? And he loves to experiment with food. Because I have problems eating gluten, he’s always modifying recipes.
My favorite pull apart pork – had to twist his arm to get his recipe.
1 pork shoulder roast or pork loin
Make some narrow slits through the fat layer in the meat about an inch apart – this helps the fat render. Rub with with salt, pepper, and garlic. Add a shake of Tabasco and little Worcestershire.
You can change up the seasonings with barbecue sauce, applesauce, chicken stock, brown sugar – you name it – all different options.
Place the seasoned pork fat side up in an airtight baking container – we use a large stainless steel stew pot with a glass lid. Wrap foil around the edge of the container to seal in moisture. A little water or broth can be added to the container – we don’t. The rendered drippings in the sealed container keep the roast moist.
Bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour per pound. Let it rest 30-45 minutes.
I love this with everything – pulled pork and eggs for breakfast, pulled pork over veggies, pulled pork rolled up in a corn tortilla, MMMMM.
I love having a husband who likes to cook!
