This is going to be a short post as it is really late and I have got my first recording of a podcast for the Australian Journal of Pharmacy tomorrow (yay – but a bit nervous!).
I have been so lucky to have been asked to contribute to a whole heap of very cool education activities like this podcast tomorrow, recently a symposium for Department of Education professionals, and then in a few weeks a 0-3 yrs Parent Workshop hosted by Manly Village Medical Centre and BackChat Speech Pathology on the bayside. All really exciting, but I have been busy beyond belief (especially with little Miss G’s first real ballet concert next weekend, a going away do for some very good friends of ours and a 40th birthday party).
SO… I promised my “get-outta-town-awesome” pulled pork recipe, and here it is:
- 2 medium brown onions sliced thinly
- 6 cloves of garlic
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 tbs packed dark brown sugar
- 1 tbs chilli powder (substitute mild paprika if you don’t want it spicy)
- 1 tbs salt
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 boneless pork shoulder (I think the ones I usually get are around 2kg)
- 2 cups of BBQ sauce (optional)
- Place the garlic and onions in the pressure cooker and our in your stock
- combine sugar, chilli powder/paprika, cumin, salt and cinnamon
- Pat the pork dry with paper towel
- Rub the pork all over with the spice mixture
- Place it in the pressure cooker on top of the onions/garlic
- Cook for 70 min (thawed) or if you are like me and forget to defrost your meat soon enough, 90 min (partially frozen) under high pressure
- Remove pork and use 2 forks to shred
- Strain the stock and and add 1/4 cup of the stock at a time to the shredded pork until it is moistened
- You can add the optional BBQ sauce at this stage if you want (although I think it hides the more subtle flavours like the cinnamon, and prefer it without)
Serve and enjoy!! I love pulled pork on home made brioche bread and with the homemade slaw recipe that I posted previously.
This is definitely one of my favourite BBQ dishes. Nom nom nom!!
Catch you Monday with an article I wrote a little while ago but has been a long time coming – “Building Resilience in Children”
