Slow Cooker Maple Orange Pork Shoulder
I have made this recipe a few times now as it is very flavourful and super EASY!
2 ½-3lbs. pork shoulder, cut into several big chunks
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup (make sure it is 100% pure maple syrup)
1 apple, peeled and chopped
1. Rub the pork with the salt, pepper and sage. Place it in the slow cooker. I will often brown mine on the stove top first just to give it a bit more colour, texture and crunch.
2. Add the apples, orange juice and maple syrup.
3. Cook on low for 6 hours.
4. Once cooked, use 2 forks to pull the pork apart.
It pairs well with a herbed quinoa, but I often serve mine on a toasted bun with a side salad. Ensure it is a dense bun as the pork is juicy! 🙂
