JAMAICAN FLAVOURED PULLED PORK 

Ohhhh we love a Pulled Pork in our house and this one has a little hint of Jamaica in it for a little extra zing!  You will probably have a bunch of these ingredients already at home in the pantry and a  heap of these spices in your spice draw and never knew what to use them with.. well here you you… delicious, family favourite pulled pork!  Stick it in a wrap, on a roll, serve with coleslaw or salad or rice… so many options!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1.8 kg bone-in shoulder of pork, rind removed
     
  • 1 ½ cups salt reduced chicken stock
     
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce
     
  • ½ cup firmly-packed brown sugar
     
  • 1 brown onion, roughly chopped (use shallots if Low FODMAP)
     
  • Bread rolls and coleslaw, to serve

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 160˚C/140˚C fan-forced. Place pork into a roasting pan. To make rub, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Sprinkle rub over pork and gently rub into the flesh.
