Cider Pulled Pork
Updated: May 27
Bring extra flavour to your slow cooked pulled pork with apple cider!
I always like twisting a recipe by using a locally made beverage. Wine, beer and cider are produced and crafted in the Snowys and they can all bring flavour to food, especially in a slow cooked dish. For this one, I added a bottle of apple cider to a pulled pork recipe reinvented for the slow cooker. The recipe is so easy to do and the result is just delicious. The meat cooks all day and there is no need for much intervention. If you wish to have this ready for dinner, you only have to plan ahead and prep the ingredients in the morning (or at least 8 hours before supper time). Depending on how many people will be enjoying the feast, there will be a lot left over to enjoy in different ways: with rice and veggies, in a burger, in a shepherd’s pie, on a pizza, nachos, stuffed baked potatoes and of course, topped over a poutine! A perfectly versatile comfort dish to have in any season. But for the local snowy foodies out there, the best time to make this cider pulled pork recipe is in May (if you live near Batlow) after taking home some of your favourite bottles from Batlow Ciderfest. To serve with the pulled pork meal, crack some cool bubbly ciders, and that will be even better!
