Slow cooker pork shoulder
- Preparation and cooking time
- Cook: -

- Serves 6-8
Slow cooking delivers lovely tender meat. Cook this shoulder of pork until it falls apart, shred it, then pile into baguettes or serve alongside veg or salad
- STEP 1
Remove the fat from the pork shoulder (you can get your butcher to do this bit for you). Season the pork with salt and pepper then heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium to high heat. Brown the pork shoulder on all sides then transfer to a slow cooker. Add all the other ingredients, then cook on low for 6-8 hours until the meat pulls apart when pressed with two forks.
- STEP 2
Remove the meat, place on a plate and shred it with two forks. Remove the herbs from the sauce and squeeze the garlic cloves out of their skins back into the pot. Put the meat back into its sauce for wonderfully tender and moist slow cooker pork. Serve as an alternative to your Sunday roast with roasted new potatoes, or with a big green salad, mustard and warmed baguettes.
