  • Summary

    Tender, tangy pulled pork cooked low and slow in a slow cooker. This recipe is best if you make the meat a day ahead of time; let the drippings chill overnight then skim off the fat, and reduce the remaining liquid into the sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 3 pounds boneless pork shoulder
    • 1 cup pineapple juice
    • 1/4 cup lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon lime zest
    • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 1 medium onion, sliced
    • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 18 6-inch corn tortillas, warmed
    • fresh cilantro, for topping
    • 1 red onion, very thinly sliced
    • boiling water, for blanching
    • 1 cup apple cider vinegar (or use a mix of cider and white vinegar)
    • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
