This spicy and tangy pulled pork is best served in a bun topped with my cilantro lime coleslaw.
Preheat oven to 300°F.
In a food processor place mango, garlic, lime juice, lemongrass, ginger, chili sauce, marmalade and one whole jalapeno (stem removed). Blend until smooth.
Deseed and dice the second jalapeno.
Pour the puree into a medium sized bowl and stir in soy sauce, green onions, diced jalapeno and sesame oil.
Pat pork shoulder dry with a paper towel and place it in a large Dutch oven. Pour mango mixture over the meat making sure to get it in every nook and cranny. Add water.
Cover the pot and place it in the center of the oven. Cook for one hour then turn the pork and spoon the juices over the top. Place it back in the oven. Repeat this process for six hours (every hour, turn the pork and baste with juices) or until the meat comes easily off the bone.
Remove it from the oven, and when it’s cool enough to handle, remove the fat and bone and shred the pork using two forks.
You can serve it right away, but I let mine cool and popped it in the fridge overnight and reheated it the next day.
Serve it on its own or in a sandwich.
The texture is absolutely perfect, creamy and rich. You should start with 1/2 cup of cheese and go from there. If you want it cheesier and richer like me, then you can and should add 1/4 cup more. This is one of those recipes I have pinned to my fridge so that I have it close in those lazy single moments haha.
Have 30 minutes? Then you can definitely make this crazy good recipe using everyday ingredients.
