Made some pulled pork today. It was $1.72/lb at superstore. $15 for about 9 lbs of pork!
And now I have little ziploc bags in the freezer that future me will thank me for.
Hacked it apart into two big pieces without a bone, and the bone and some more that wouldn’t fit in the roasting pan set aside.
My “usual” dry rub - mustard powder, paprika, ground fresh cumin from the mortar & pestle, onion powder, coarse salt, a little bit of cane sugar, a little bit of cayenne. Cut slices into the skin and fat cap. Worked the dry rub into the meat all over, put in a roasting pan with aluminum foil on the bottom.
Cooked for 6 hours at 300F. About halfway, scooped out lots of the rendered fat and turned it over.
Separately cooked the bone and remaining pork in a cast iron pan with red onions and carrots with just salt and pepper. Finished by broiling. Served with potatoes and sautéed zucchini.
