For those of you who are like me, sadly in a place where you either don't have or can't have a smoker to make smoked meat, you might be missing pulled pork.
Here's how I made some.
- Boston Butt roast (or other pork roast that's well-marbled)
- 1 medium yellow onion
- whole jalapeno peppers in juice
- Chicken stock (I had some left over from the last time I boiled up a chicken to make soup)
Slice up the onion into discs, and put ingredients into the crockpot. I put in 5 or 6 whole jalapenos and about 1/3 of the jar's worth of juice.
Cook on low overnight or all day. When the meat is easily pulled apart, you're good.
Pull the meat out onto a cutting board and pull apart using a couple of forks.
Put the pulled pork into your oven on the lowest temperature setting for about an hour, turning occasionally. This dries it out to the consistency of BBQ.
Dress the Q appropriately with your favorite sauce, vinegar, mustard, or not at all (it's good even without sauce) and enjoy!
