Easy peasy pulled pork
2kg pork shoulder (bone in), skin scored
4 cloves garlic, sliced thickly
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp smoked paprika
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 brown onion, thinly sliced
1 cup water or reduced-salt chicken or vegetable stock*
Make slits in the pork flesh and insert the garlic. Combine the spices and rub all over the pork.
Place onion on the base of a slow cooker. Add the pork and water or stock and cook covered on low for 8 hours or until the pork falls off the bone.
Remove the skin and fat and discard. Shred meat with two forks. Add back some cooking liquid to moisten the pork.
