It's going to be Pulled Pork.

Wed Feb 20, 2013 9:07 pm

Local shop had "Pork Cusion" on sale this week. I have never used it to cook with before. Not quite as fatty as the butte end shoulder. It comes from the picnic end. Got a new knife last week time to try it out.

Veg for the braise:

Nice rough chop:

Got the meat out this morning. Let it marinade for just over 12 hours. Used the new knife to cut it last night too:

Nicely browned off, ready for the braise pot. We'll see what it looks like in 8-10 hours:

The knife is a Fernandez 230mm Gyuto with a Buckeye Burl handle. So far I like it.

It sure looks good there!

Nice knife too.

Actually I braised it at 220 f. And it was good to go after 4 hours. I have some more pork marinading from this batch and I am going to just roast it. I'll go at 200 with that. Should take at least 8 hours.

I am simmering the braise liquid with some tomato sauce and cider vinegar and I'll whiz in some roast garlic to it with a stick blender when it cooks down a bit.

Anyway, here is what it looks like pulled.
