Sweet & Savory Pulled Pork



Sweet & Savory Pulled Pork


  • 3lb pork shoulder
  • 6oz No tomato marinara (recipe by Urban Poser) or regular marinara if you can eat tomatoes!
  • 3 oz White Wine
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 sprigs fresh basil
  • 1 very sweet, ripe pear (if you have a very rip pineapple, peach or nectarine you can use that too!)
  • 1 small sweet onion
  • 2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 3 lbs pork shoulder, bone in


  1. Rub meat down with salt, pepper, ginger, garlic, fruit & basil.
  2. Place in crock pot and throw onions on top, pour in liquids.
  3. In your crockpot: Cook on low for 3 hours & high for 3 hours.
  4. In dutch oven: Set oven to 325F, bring the pot to a simmer stove top, cover and place in oven and cook for 4 hours
  5. When’s it ready? When fork tender, that’ the best test. Take a fork to it and if the meat just falls off- you’re ready.
  6. Take two forks and in a criss-cross motion pull the meat apart and away from bone. This is best done on a sheet pan.
  7. Ladle sauce/liquid over the meat and serve immediately, or broil on high for a few minutes.
  8. We ate ours over brussel sprout & parsnip hash with avocado. It was delicious, juicy & so well balanced.
