Pulled Pork

Early one morning I knew I had a really busy day scheduled so I wanted to get dinner organised while I had time.

I had a large pork shoulder in the fridge waiting to be roasted but decided that the slow cooker was the better way to go. 

While drinking my coffee I rubbed my shoulder (the pork not mine) with Noccas and threw  another tablespoon full of Noccas in the bottom of the slow cooker along with the pork. 

Before I put the lid on I thought I had perhaps better put some liquid in as well to keep it moist, previously I have used a can of coke or a can of beer, both options were delicious but I am currently sugar free so I wanted something a little different .

Looking around the kitchen I spotted the half empty coffee plunger ...... " ah ha!" ..... (yep the light bulb went on in my head) and you guessed it ... I added 1 cup of extremely strong unsweetened GOOD black coffee, it has to be really good coffee (like when cooking with wine, if you won't drink it don't use it in your cooking).

I popped the lid on, set the slow cooker on low,  8 hours later pulled the very tender and juicy pork apart with two forks.

He said it was the best pork he has ever eaten!
