We were able to get some loin of pork, which means it’s time to do some pulled pork! I guess this variant isn’t even close to the original, but we don’t bother following recipes that often so we took what we had at home for the moment.
This was served with oven baked point cabbage and some fried carrots and onion. And lime to add some extra acidity!
Pulled pork in spicy tomato sauce
- Canned tomatoes
- Brown onions
- Chili pods
- Chili powder
- Chili flakes
- Cayenne pepper
- Ginger, fresh and dried
- Cumin seed
- Salt & pepper
- Apple cider vinegar
- Loin of pork, organic!
Put all the ingredients for the sauce, i.e canned tomatoes with the onion and all the spices and a splash of apple cider vinegar, into a saucepan and let it boil together for as long as your patience holds.
Place the loin of pork in your Schlemmertopf or cast iron pot and cover it with the tomato sauce. Put into the oven at 125°C for at least five hours. Preferably more. It should be possible to tear the meat apart using two forks. That’s your pulled pork!
This variant got a bit saucy, but there’s nothing wrong with that. Save the leftover sauce and cook a nice soup or something similar from it.
