Shredded Pork (Pulled Pork)

I saw this recipe on Food Network Asia and I knew I had to try it coz it's so interesting! Basically it's like braising pork with Root Beer! Yes...Root beer! Rub down the pork with spices, put them into the slow cooker, fill with root beer & let it cook overnight. After an hour or so, the whole house was filled with lovely aroma. Hubby kept telling me that it smells so good and that it was keeping him awake. By the morning, the pork was soft & tender. All I had to do was shred them, stuff them into pita bread, drizzle a little gravy & start munching. Fat Cheeks loved it so much, she couldn't stop to talk but gave me the thumbs up sign as she munched. =) I think it will go very well with pasta too. Yumz.

- 1kg pork shoulder
- 4 oz root beer
- 1.5 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tbsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp cumin
- 1/2 tbsp paprika
- 1/2 tbsp pepper
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1 med onion, diced

- wash pork and pat dry
- mix spices & herb, rub all over pork
- place diced onion at bottom on slow cooker, followed by the pork on top
- add root beer
- cover & cook over high for an hour or 2, then turn to low heat & cook for another 4-5 hours
- remove pork & shred
- drizzle with gravy & serve warm
- Note: you can make the gravy thicker by adding some flour to the gravy & boiling it.
