Cast your vote for Boston Pork

This dish apply called Boston Butt or more commonly known as Carolina style pulled pork is delicious, not hard to make, and can be shared at a dinner,lunch or for brunch.

It is heavy so far as the calories but if consumed moderately it can be enjoyed by almost anyone who loves pork " the other white meat"

This cut of pork actually comes from the pork's shoulder region and it is specially adept to make for a home style BBQ.

It is usually cooked slowly as this produces the most tenderness in the meat and preserves most of the flavors.

Additional cooking methods; grill on direct heat about 7 minutes. Baste in the barbecue sauce and wrap in aluminum foil. Grill for an additional 2 hours or until the meat is tender.

Boiling; Cut meat into squares or bite size portions. Fill a stock pot with about 4 quarts of water. Place the meat, 2 bay leaves, 2 tablespoons cumin, 1 onion that has been quartered and 3 cut or smashed garlic cloves.

Bring to a boil and then reduce to about medium heat.

Cook the entire mix for about 45 minutes or until the meat feels tender and shreds easily. Again a fork is best for this.

Dish is best served along side roasted or baked apples, peaches, pineapples or sweet potatoes. This balances the tangy flavor of the sauce and the garlic. French bread and a red wine are always appropriate.

Great as the main dish and better if used as a sandwich filling along with some slices of avocado or even baked mango.

      Since moving to South Carolina, I've become a big fan of pulled pork. I haven't tried to make it myself, but this recipe sounds delicious. I will have to give it a try. Voted up and pinned!
