1/2 Price Fresh British Boneless Pork Shoulder Joint - £2.50/kg @ Morrisons

20
Found 16th Sep 2013
From the 'Pick of the Street Range'. 1/2 price until Sunday.

Also got 4 packs of Medium White Baps @ £0.69 and BOGOF, making them less than 9p each.

Their Fresh British Beef Quarter Pounders at £1.37 for 4 doesn't seem too bad an offer either.

Picture to follow (can't upload from this mini iPad just now). Or, if a mod can oblige with a picture I'd be grateful.

Seems very, very tasty. I think I'll need to invest in a slow cooker.

Good price, and you can get it cut to size if you want a piece smaller or bigger than the ones on the shelves or if you want to be picky and get less fat etc for the same price at the butcher's counter.

Should be hotter than this you won't get a pork joint for less than £3 a kilo anywhere else.

Pulled pork this weekend, methinks. Yummy. Hot.

Go to a 99p store, they have Kraft Bullseye bqq sauce usually, which is the shiznit. if you're serving with pulled pork though, add some apple cider vinegar and a bit of the dry rub you use.

Or just put your oven on low...

Oven on low still doesn't come out the same. Whole point in a slow cooker is it's a sealed vessel so no moisture escapes not to mention that a slow cooker uses less juice than a light bulb whereas again even on low an oven uses considerably more electricity

I think the slow cooker definitely wins it.

Anyone got any cooking tips? I have 3 large shoulder joints in the freezer that I bought reduced. Unfortunately I cooked the first one the same as I always cook a leg joint....didn't realise this was different and it was absolutely foul!! Its put me off a bit and have attempted it again since. Do I just cook it for a lot longer?? Any tips would be appreciated

I don't have a slow cooker and would have to oven roast....

Just buy a slow cooker. You can get decent ones for less than £20.

Put a joint in slow cooker with a bottle of full fat Coke or Pepsi. Cook on low for 12 hours (ish). Remove from slow cooker, and discard the Coke. Pull joint apart with a couple of forks. Add back to slow cooker with a bottle of good quality BBQ sauce for between 4 and 6 hours.

Serve in a bread roll with coleslaw. Nom nom nom.

Yes, make your own! I used to be lazy and buy ready made sauces but after its a whole different league with homemade.

Theres loads online but this is my favourtie as I find its a nice sweet sauce but still packs a punch with the sharpness

Ingredients:
100g soft brown sugar
100ml Shaoxing wine or dry sherry
100g ginger, peeled and finely grated
3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
200ml tomato ketchup
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
100ml soy sauce

Method
1.marinade by putting the brown sugar and Shaoxing wine or sherry in a small pan and heat gently until the sugar has melted.
2.Add the ginger and the garlic and cook gently for 10 minutes (Pic 2). This will take away the rawness of the garlic. Add the rest of the marinade ingredients and give a good stir until everything is incorporated. Simmer for a couple more minutes then pour into a bowl and leave to cool.

Cheers That's tea tomorrow sorted,
when you say bottle of coke how much do you mean 2L 500ml ?
Do i just put the joint in as is or do you trim fat etc off it and score it etc.
Anything else other than coke ? stock etc.
Last question - a whole bottle of sauce ? what size ? sorry to be a pain but never made this before and don't want to cock it up.

i lied lol 1 more question sorry. Slow cooker on high,low or auto

Make your own. Look up Weber recipes for really easy, storecupboard ingredient sauces. They are pretty good. Also look up Steven Raichlen sauces. Bit more elaborate but excellent. Personal favourite is lemon brown sugar bbq sauce.

Tried n tested many times. You can change the rub to suit your persoanl tastes and make your own sauce etc.

Enough coke to cover the joint, so probably about 2ltrs. You can always top it up with water if it's not enough. I try and trim as much fat off before putting it in slow cooker. Also, I chuck in a few chopped onions at the start. And I cook it on low. There's no hard and fast rules. Think the only golden rule is "low and slow".

you dont need that much coke, a can or so should do. if you're on facebook look up 'slow cooked wonders :)' lots of recipes on there

Thanks both for the advice, don't do facebook (it's worse than the devil) but will get the missus to give it a look when she is updating her 5 million fake friends on what she had for tea lol

That's the fizzy pork (as my young lad has christened it) started, early tea tomorrow, heinz sticky BBQ sauce at the ready. Just need to figure out how to stop my homemade coleslaw going watery now lol

Hotukdeals or W.I. you decide.

Cheers again.
