I was in the supermarket one day and they were having a great sale on pork loin, so I bought some. I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with it, but I have been missing the wonderful pulled pork that I ate down south this year, so I thought I would try to make some from it. It was a very lean cut so I was a bit concerned that it would dry out, but it didn’t. I would have liked to use a slow cooker, because the ‘low and slow’ cooking method is supposed to come out the best, but I didn’t have 8 hours to wait, so I just used my standard Le Creuset casserole. I used the Slightly Smokey SCD BBQ Sauce from my previous post and added some apple cider for additional moisture and sweetness. The final pulled pork came out flavorful and tender.
SCD Pulled Pork Ingredients
1 three lb pork loin
1 cup SCD BBQ sauce
1 cup apple cider
Preheat oven to 350. Place pork in pot, cover with sauce and cider. Bake for an hour then stir sauce around in the pot. You should notice the sauce thickening nicely. Bake for another 30 minutes until the meat is done. The sauce should be reduced and thick. If not, cook for another 10 or 15 minutes uncovered or slightly covered. Let cool 10 or 15 minutes, then take 2 forks and pull pork apart into shreds. Mix with the sauce in the pot. Serve.
