Carolina style shredded pork BBQ. This recipe was given to us when we lived in the Carolinas.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 6 pounds pork shoulder
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup vinegar
- 1/3 cup white sugar
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 clove garlic, pressed
Place pork shoulder, bay leaf, red pepper and water in large pot with lid. Bring to boil. Simmer covered 4 to 5 hours until meat is tender. Let meat cool in broth. Remove excess fat from broth and shred meat.
Take 3 cups of liquid and bring to boil. Combine liquid with vinegar, sugar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. Add shredded pork and salt. Heat through uncovered.
