Pulled Pork :: 31 Days of Healthy Freezer Meals
Here's another recipe I love to double - one for the day of and freeze the second for later in the month. I like recipes like this that have a homemade spice and sauce so I know exactly what's going in the meal - this is better than any spice pack you'd buy at Walmart!
3 T. paprika
1 T. salt
2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 T. olive oil
1 onion, peeled and cut in half
3 - 3 1/2 lbs. port shoulder, cut in half
1. Combine the spices in a bowl.
2. Pour in the honey, vinegar, and olive oil. It will for a paste.
3. Place onion in freezer bag, top with spice paste and then add the pork. Freeze.
4. Thaw and cook on low 7-8 hours or until meat is tender enough to shred with a fork.
*If you are not freezing and choose to cook the pork right away, place onion in the bottom of a slow cooker. Place pork on top and cover pork with the spice paste. Cook as directed above.
