Oh Wow! This is just so amazing! Just writing about it makes me feel hungry!
As much as I love it, pulled pork always seemed like such a faff, surely it can’t taste so amazing and not be really hard work? But honestly this isn’t! An amazingly tasty meal that doesn’t have a billion ingredients or takes ages to make. The oven does most of the work for you, so just sit back and relax!
Pork and apple is always a win, the two flavours go together like….well,… apple and pork! Add in everything else to make the sticky, sweet apple sauce and you won’t be able to resist a second….. third….. and maybe fourth helping! You won’t find any leftovers in our kitchen.
This Pulled Pork is great in burger rolls with onion rings and coleslaw.
1kg Boneless Pork Shoulder
1 Bramley Apple, Peeled, cored and cut into chunks
100g Dark Brown Soft Sugar
100ml Maple Syrup
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Wholegrain Mustard
Line a roasting pan with 2 large sheets of foil, one laid each way. Make sure they are long enough to create a parcel.
Place apple, syrup and sugar into a saucepan and cook over a gentle heat until the apple is soft and the ingredients are mixed together. Turn off the heat and add the salt and mustard and mix through.
Lay the pork into your pan and pour over 3/4 of the apple sauce. Join the sides of the foil to create a parcel (make sure there is space between the foil and pork).
Cook for 3 hours at 160 oc (140 fan assisted).
After this time, fold down the sides of the foil and spoon over the rest of the apple sauce. Cook for another hour.
Remove from the oven, cover and allow to rest for 20-30 mins, before serving.
When you are ready to serve, take 2 forks and shred the meat.
