BBQs and Lazy Days

As the days are now getting considerably warmer, it is time for BBQs and Lazy days. Kicking back and enjoying your gardens, watching the Bees go about their business, the ladybugs help clean your beans of greenfly and hopefully, await the arrival of a hedgehog or two for the nightly slug patrol!

As we indulge for a moment, why not throw the slow cooker on and add some luxurious homemade pulled pork to your BBQ menu? It is so simple to make and you probably already have some if not all, of the ingredients in your cupboard already! Here is my take the American Pulled Pork.

Pulled Pork in a Crock Pot

3 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ cup honey
¼ cup red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, peeled and cut in half
3 to 3 ½ pounds pork shoulder, cut in half

1. In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together the first six ingredients (all of the spices) with a fork.
2. Pour in the honey, vinegar, and olive oil and stir to form a paste.
3. Place the onion in the bottom of the slow cooker. Top it with the 2 pieces of pork and then pour the honey paste over all sides of the pork pieces. It’s okay if some of it (or a lot of it) just drips down to the bottom.
4. Turn the slow cooker on to low and cook for 7 to 8 hours or until the meat is tender enough to be easily shredded with a fork.
5. Serve warm with fixings like homemade coleslaw and cornbread.

Refrigerate or freeze the leftovers.
