1.4kg pork shoulder roast, free range and skin on
2 tbsp Gewürzhaus Chipotle Pulled Pork Rub
1 large onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
500ml chicken stock
Juice of 2 oranges
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp coconut sugar
6-8 large flour tortilla wraps
½ batch Chipotle pulled pork and pork crackling
¼ red onion, finely sliced
Sharp cheddar, grated
Danish feta, grated
Butterfly the pork roast so that you can spread it reasonably flat into the base of a slow cooker, skin side down. Add Chipotle Pulled Pork Rub, onion, garlic, sugar, vinegar and juice. Spread roughly over and under the meat.
Add enough stock to roughly half cover the meat.
Slow cook on low for 7 hours or overnight, with the lid closed.
In the last hour of cooking, leave the lid open and increase the temperature to HIGH.
At the same time, remove the skin and fat and place into a preheated cast iron pan (Place a splatter guard on top as the pork can pop and spray hot oil). Cook on LOW heat to render the fat, adding a good pinch of salt. Carefully pour off the oil into a glass jar as the fat liquifies. This makes great dirty “Schmalz”, a German delicacy which is spread on bread just like butter. You can also use the fat for cooking, especially frying.
Continue to cook the remaining skin, turning occasionally, until it is crisp and you can break it into small pieces of crackling. This may take an hour. Set aside to sprinkle on your recipe of choice.
Shred the meat using two forks. You can do this in the slow cooker in the liquid or remove the meat first. Taste before serving – you may like to add a touch more apple cider vinegar or orange juice to balance the flavours.
Heat the tortillas according to the packet instructions. Add avocado, then pork, onion and other ingredients to the wrap along the centre in a line, leaving some space on the ends.
The ingredients for pulled pork will make double the amount of pulled pork needed for this recipe. You can halve it for this recipe, however we recommend saving half (you can freeze it) and enjoying it with another dish, like our Chipotle Pulled Pork Nourish Bowl or Pulled Pork Tacos.
