Carribean Style Slow Cooked Pork

This is a really easy, delicious slow cooked pork dish packed with loads of flavour, great served with mash and veg to keep you warm this winter – I don’t have a photo of the finished dish as it didn’t last long!

Serves: 4 – 6

Ingredients: 800 – 1kg of Pork Shoulder (fat removed), 2 x celery sticks, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/2 a lemon, 1 onion, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 small chillies (whole), more if you like it hot! 2 bay leaves, 1 tsp. dried thyme, 500ml ginger ale, good pinch of salt and pepper.

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 130F
  2. Roughly chop all of your vegetables
  3. Place the pork in an oven proof lidded dish
  4. Scatter all of the vegetables and dried herbs plus the lemon all over the pork with good pinch of salt and pepper
  5. Pour over the ginger ale put the lid on and pop into the oven for 4 hours, checking half way through cooking time that it is not drying out, if it is add a little water, at this stage also pour some of the juices back over the pork
  6. Pop back in the oven until cooking time is up
  7. Allow to rest for 10 – 15mins then you should be able to shred the pork easily
  8. Serve with some extra veg, potatoes or rice and drizzle over some of those amazing juices…
  9. Enjoy!
