How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees with racks in lower and upper positions.
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar, cayenne, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper.
  • Place pork in a 5-quart dutch oven; rub with spice mixture.
  • In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, garlic, and 1/2 cup water; pour over pork.
  • Cover pot, place on lower rack, and bake until pork is tender and easily pulls apart with a fork - 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
  • Transfer pork to a work surface, reserving pan juices. Shred meat using two forks. (I prefer to leave larger chunks rather than shredding every little piece)
  • Transfer meat to a large bowl and add enough pan juices to keep moist. Use extra if you will be storing meat because it will soak up the juices.
  • ***If you want to use BBQ sauce, also: either gently mix it into the meat mixture or pour some on after you've put it on the rolls.

    Ok, daughter of mine, I made this for dinner tonight. It was AWFUL!!!! Ok, I'm kidding...this was some of the most tender pork I've ever eaten. I knew the vinegar would be a great tenderizer, but I worried that it would overpower the flavor of the meat...not so at all. Tender, very moist, lightly spiced! We ate in on toasted buns, with a little added Sweet Baby Ray's on top - these are definitely delicious and ridiculously easy. Way to go, honey - another keeper you've found for your mama!! PS - I posted some pics for you...

    So you've told me about this often enough - now I have to actually try it...guess you're not going to bring me any?!?!??? That does sound like a lot of vinegar, but I'll take your word for it - we have similar enough tastes that I know I'll like it. You're on a roll tonight, honey!
