Pulled Pork, the Waitrose Way

July 10, 2014

I’m usually very good at blowing my own trumpet about how good my home-smoked pulled pork is.

But there is often another way, an easy way; and it’s only fair to those of you without smoking grills to mention something I have tried that is truly excellent.

LN_756770_BP_11It’s this British Outdoor Bred British Pork Shoulder, produced by Dalehead Foods, and stocked by Waitrose.

The pork joint is a true shoulder, although not bone-in, it is a solid piece of meat, not rolled or shaped. It comes pre-seasoned, together with a sachet of mustard “drizzle”. The instructions tell you to oven roast the joint, adding the drizzle at the end.

Ignore that. The best way to cook this is to put the whole thing, including the drizzle, into a slow cooker, and leave it to cook for 6-8 hours. It falls apart, and while it is not a *smoked* shoulder, it is very tasty indeed; and easy for anyone to prepare.

    That does sound rather good. How much is it?

      Can’t remember off hand, but it wasn’t expensive. They were doing 3 for the price of 2 a couple of months ago, and so I put 2 in the freezer.
