    Dr Nick's Note:

    A 'pulled pork' recipe I came up with, inspired by my local El Salvadorian restaurant. Great for those who aren't fans of sweet BBQ sauce-based versions (like me!). Try it with Quick Spanish Rice.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash your hands!
    2. 2
      Trim excess fat from roast.
    3. 3
      Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and rub over the entire surface of the pork.
    4. 4
      Place pork in a slow cooker. Add water until roast is approximately half submerged. Add vinegar and remaining dry ingredients to the water and stir.
    5. 5
      Place slow cooker on low and leave for 6-8 hours, turning occasionally if you can.
    6. 6
      Remove roast from slow cooker. At this stage it's easy to remove any membrane that may be attached to the surface. Shred the pork using two forks and transfer to a large frying pan.
    7. 7
      Add about half the liquid to the pan and simmer gently until most of the liquid has reduced. You want the meat to be moist but not swimming.
    8. 8
      Serve in pre-warmed corn tortillas. I add chopped tomato and spanish onion with just a few drops of hot sauce.

      I needed a simple recipe for pork but one that didn't produce a super sweet taste. I made this and the pork turned out fantastic. To be honest with you I will never use any other recipe now. I went to make it a 2nd time and realized I had not rated it. I was worried at first that the spices would be too strong but they weren't at all. This is a great recipe for pork to use for any mexican food. Thank you for posting this keeper recipe I will use over and over again! ADDITIONAL NOTE: The only change I make it I use 1/8 teaspoon of the cayenne. If a lot of cayenne is not to you liking try eliminating it or put only this little bit. I can't tolerate super hot food. Without so much cayenne for us it's a 10 star recipe!

      Unfortunately - it was a no go in our house. Fed 12 people following directions 100% tonight and only two ate it ( 4 yo andf 8 yo), others just pushed everything around their plate, trying to be polite :( Slightly red faced as it was the inlaws...
