Until a couple of weeks ago I didn’t even know what pulled pork was, but now I am hooked. Very easy to make, low-fat, low-carb and delicious. This is my first ever pulled pork. I started off using this recipe from FotoCuisine but then realised that I didn’t have any ginger or limes or roasted jalapeños … so I decided to improvise.
Instructions below the links.

Rub lots of coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper into the pork shoulder and let stand for an hour or so. Then sear in hot pan with olive oil. Pour liquid into a baking dish (approx 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar, juice of two limes, 1 cup white wine and 1 cup orange juice) and add one head of peeled garlic cloves. Place seared pork into the baking dish, cover well with aluminum foil. Roast slowly in 150ºC oven for about 2 1/2 hours, turning every half hour or so. Pull apart with forks to serve. Use braising liquid to make sauce.
