Last month on my monthly trip to Costco (I try to only go once a month) I purchased a huge 9.5 pound pork shoulder. Yes, this is conventional and not pasture pork, but things are tight right now and I have to be a frugal as I can! I asked them to separate the meat into 3 parts, he isn't supposed to, but did and then wrapped it up tightly as one again! Yeah! Can't hurt to ask! This is great to freeze and it will stretch over a few months as we do not eat that much pork!
I cooked this portion down last week-it was huge and we only ate from it one time and I knew that I wanted to do something different with it! (I cooked this pork section overnight and on low- I served it with caramlized onions + salad and roasted sweet potatoes-it was so good!)
I wanted a different tasting sauce for this leftover portion- and when I read the ingredients on BBQ and other sauces I can't ever seem to find one without crap in it. I decided to make my own. I am so glad that I did!
2 -8 ounce cans of tomato paste
1 cup of water
2 tablespoons of apple cider vingear
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
1/4 cup of honey
Salt & pepper to taste
1 tablespoon red boat fish sauce
1 tablespoon coconut amino
Whisked this all in a bowl and poured it over the pulled pork and 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen (I love the bag of frozen at Costco) Pinnapple!
Mix it all and heat on low for 4 hours!
