Paleo Pulled Pork
- Leg of Pork – approx. 3-1/2 - 4 pound
- 4 tablespoons mild yellow mustard
- 2 tablespoons cumin
- 2 tablespoons black pepper
- 2 tablespoons sea salt
- 2 tablespoons oregano
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- 2 cups pure apple juice
- Mix all the dry spices and herbs together in a bowl.
- Rub the pork joint all over with the mustard.
- Next rub the pork with the spice mix.
- Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 12 hours.
- Place in a deep oven-proof dish that you can either close with a lid or cover well with foil.
- Pour the apple juice over the meat and place in the oven heated to 140C, 275F, or gas mark 1 for about 6 hours.
- From time to time baste the meat with its own juices.
- Once cooked, remove from the oven and pour the juices in a separate bowl. You can use this for gravy or add it to other sauces.
- Take a fork and pull the meat while still hot. It should be very easy.
