Pulled pork is one of the most popular meats in the world, and it can be made easily and cheaply.
So why not make your own?

This is the main ingredient in pulled pork.
A bit of garlic and a pinch of black pepper will give the pulled pork a smoky flavour.
You can use any sort of pork shoulder that has been cut and diced, but be sure to leave some skin intact.
If you don’t have any pork shoulder on hand, you can buy one at a meat market.
You’ll also need some fresh vegetables and herbs, some parsley, some thyme and a bit of salt and pepper.
A small amount of the pork shoulder can also be added to the pot of water for simmering, which will give a smokier sauce that’ll enhance the flavour.
To get the right flavour, I like to add some garlic, thyme, a pinch and a dash of salt, and some fresh pepper.
It doesn’t need to be fancy or expensive, but if you’re not sure what to use it could be used as a side dish or a main course.
How to cook the meat: Place a small amount (5 to 7kg) of pork in a large pot.
Cover the pot with cold water.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for 10 minutes.
If the meat is browning at this point, add a dash or two of vinegar to the water to add a little colour to the sauce.
Let the meat simmer for another 10 minutes, or until it’s cooked through.
If your pork is still a little pinkish on the outside, add some fresh black pepper to the pork to make it even more flavourful.
The sauce will thicken when the pork is ready.
If it’s too runny, add more salt.
Cook for 20 minutes, then strain the meat and discard the bay leaves.
If necessary, you could also add some smoked paprika or a pinch or two.
A few minutes before serving, pour the sauce over the meat.
If using fresh vegetables, you’ll want to add them right after cooking to give them a nice crunchy texture.
Serve with your favourite side dishes and some more smoked paprikas or paprika, if you’d like.
