Pork is eaten both freshly cooked and preserved; curing extends the shelf life of pork products. Ham, smoked pork, gammon, bacon and sausage are examples of preserved pork. Charcuterie is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, many from pork.
Pork is the most popular meat in the Western world, particularly in Greece. It is also very popular in East and Southeast Asia (Mainland Southeast Asia, Philippines, Singapore, East Timor, and Malaysia). The meat is highly prized in Asian cuisines, especially in China, for its fat content and texture.
Some religions and cultures prohibit pork consumption, notably Islam and Judaism.
This pork roast is another one of those recipes where I throw all of my ingredients into my slow cooker and then let it do all the work. Everyone loves the moist, scrumptious pulled pork it makes and rave over it every time I serve it. So even though it’s incredibly easy to make, I get to take all the credit for it.
Seriously though, I’ve made this so many times, have found the best cuts of pork to use and the right blend of ingredients to use in this slow cooker recipe. I’ve tested the recipe so many times to know exactly how to slow cook it so that it is so very tender and not tough. So, I think it really is a fair partnership that my slow cooker and I have in making this delicious pork roast recipe. And it results in the best pulled pork I’ve ever tasted!
