Pulled Pork with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Hmm, tender pulled pork … You can achieve this degree of tenderness by using the slow cooker. Just “forget” the meat in there for 5 hours at low temperature. Let it borrow the tomato and spices’ aromas and then use the liquid resulted from cooking the pork to put together a thick sauce.

Ingredients

2 teaspoons of mixed spice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cups of tomato purée
1 cup water
2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
1 ½ pounds of pork neck
1 onion, chopped
bay leaves
2 tablespoons of cornstarch

Steps

  1. Add the mixed spices, brown sugar, tomato puree, water, and apple vinegar to a bowl. Whisk until even.
  2. Add the pork neck to the slow cooker. Add the onion and a few bay leaves, too. Pour the spicy tomato mixture over them.
  3. Cover with the lid and cook for 5 hours on low temperature.
  4. Transfer the cooked meat on a plate and set it aside. Pour the liquid resulted from cooking the meat into a smaller pot over low heat.
  5. Shortly mix the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water in a small bowl, then add it to the pot. Cook and whisk until reduced.
  6. Transfer the meat on the work surface and shred it. Serve it topped with the thick sauce over some greens.
