Garlic Pulled Pork - Primal, Paleo, Kid Friendly and Clean Eating

I never really liked pork until a few years ago.  I always found it to be dry and bland or very chewy so I stayed away from it.  Now I know a little more about the different pork cuts and the differences between good quality meat and mass produced meat.  

Pork shoulder

Pork shoulder is one of the meat cuts that I have come to love over the last year, it cheap to buy, easy to cook and can be put to use in lots of different ways.  Pork shoulder is a great as you cook it once and end up with about 5 meals.  When buying pork shoulder be sure to pick a joint that had the bone in.as it will have more flavour and the best tasting meat is right by the bones.  This recipe is a very basic one that lets the natural flavour of the pork shine and makes it a perfect base for other meals.
