I had Pulled Pork for the first and, to be honest, the last time at a popular fast-food restaurant. I was drawn to the idea of it and the photo in the ad looked appealing, so it was mere culinary curiosity :) But what I got was just not so good looking and kind of tasteless. Since then, I've been testing the Pulled Pork recipe and I've tried many versions of it, both classic and original. Eventually, I decided to stick to this one, which is adapted to our taste.
Pulled Pork, or shredded pork, is actually slow cooked steak in the oven, seasoned with specific spices and sauce. It usually has a slight smoky flavour and a somewhat sweet taste, like the Barbeque sauce kind of sweet. I don't like this combination, so I got rid of the sugar in the sauce right from the start. The smoky flavour comes from the smoked paprika, I'm not too fond of that either, so I often replace it with sweet paprika, especially that smoked paprika is so hard to find.
This is a simple low-carb, no sugar recipe, but you are free to create the version you like. You can play, adjusting the salt, sugar and smoky flavour to your own taste. One more important thing - you'll get a lot of food if you use these amounts. I was a bit buffled at first, but then I decided to freeze the rest. When thawed, the meat doesn't lose its taste and texture, so you can always keep it for when you are in the mood for some pita bread sandwiches or just plain, but you don't have the time.
Oh, and you can use chicken, turkey or any other meat you like, but keep it in the over for less time, I'd say 2-3 hours.
