Recipe Steps

Pulled pork is a beloved dish known for its tender, flavorful meat that falls apart with ease. This recipe takes a traditional approach with a special twist – incorporating Spanish olive oil. The use of Spanish olive oil not only infuses the pork with a rich, fruity aroma but also ensures a moist and succulent texture.

  1. Prep the Pork: Begin by patting the pork shoulder dry with paper towels. In a small bowl, mix the smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, ground cumin, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper to create a dry rub.
  2. Apply the Rub: Generously coat the pork shoulder with Spanish olive oil, ensuring it's fully covered. Then, apply the dry rub evenly over the pork, massaging it into the meat to enhance flavor penetration.
  3. Slow Cook: Place the pork shoulder in a slow cooker. Mix apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, tomato paste, and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl and pour it over the pork. Cook on low for 8 hours or until the meat is tender and easily shreds with a fork.
  4. Shred the Pork: Once cooked, transfer the pork to a large bowl. Use two forks to shred the meat into bite-sized pieces. If desired, add some of the cooking liquid to keep the pork moist.
  5. Serve: Serve the pulled pork on a platter. It pairs wonderfully with coleslaw, on sandwiches, or even as a standalone dish with a side of roasted vegetables.

This homemade pulled pork recipe, enhanced with the flavors of Spanish olive oil, is a celebration of simple ingredients coming together to create a dish that's bursting with flavor. The Spanish olive oil not only adds a unique twist to this classic dish but also ensures that the pork remains juicy and tender. It's a perfect meal for gatherings, weekend dinners, or as a comforting meal any day of the week. The essence of Spanish olive oil truly shines through, making it not just a cooking ingredient, but a key flavor component in this delightful recipe.

Homemade Pulled Pork is a versatile dish that pairs well with a variety of sides. Given its rich and savory profile, here are some recommendations:

Loaded Tater Tots: A fun and casual side, loaded tater tots topped with various ingredients could be a perfect and popular accompaniment, adding a playful and indulgent touch to your dish.

Sweet Potato Wedges: If you're looking for a healthier option, baked sweet potato wedges are a delicious and straightforward choice. They offer a sweet and earthy flavor that would contrast nicely with the savory pork.
Roasted Rosemary Potatoes: A simple yet delicious classic, these oven-roasted potatoes seasoned with fresh rosemary provide a crisp and aromatic accompaniment to the tender, flavorful pulled pork.

Each of these options brings flavors and textures that would complement the rich and satisfying taste of the pulled pork beautifully.
