Crispy and Delicious Pulled Pork Caribbean Style

Pulled Pork cooked in a slow cooker for 8 hours until tender and then pan-fried with more aromatic spices. Crispy, juicy, and flavorful, and perfect for a delicious pork sandwich for lunch or serve it over white rice at dinnertime.

My pulled pork Caribbean style is not your authentic Carnitas recipes. I like to make it my own way – mixing Noubess Steak Seasoning and Green Seasoning for that subtle fiery and spicy taste. And finishing it with diced sweet peppers, chopped onion, and Noubess Garlic, and Herb Seasoning. This combination is not only super easy, but it can be served for lunch, dinner, and even as a snack on cassava or crackers.

Pulled Pork Caribbean Style

When cooking meat, it is always a good idea to experiment with ingredients. I love cooking pork in either a slow cooker or crockpot. The meat comes out very tender and easy to pull apart.

The best part of cooking in a slow cooker is flavoring. The seasoning blend or marinade has ample time to permeate the meat. This method of cooking is not only simple but also saves time cooking.

About the recipe, the ingredients you will need.

Shopping for the right pork shoulder does not require any special skills.

  • First, you need to find out the number of people you are cooking for.
  • Second, make sure that your crockpot or slow cooker is large enough to fit a whole pork shoulder.
  • Third, make sure you add enough spices to the meat so it could be flavorful.

The ingredients you will need

  • A whole pork shoulder weighing about 10 pounds to feed 10-12 people for this recipe
  • Fresh Rosemary leaves you can purchase at your local supermarket in the vegetable section.
  • Fresh garlic cloves: I buy fresh whole garlic in bulk and keep them in the freezer. It cheaper, and I don’t worry about running out of garlic.
  • Green Seasoning: We always need green seasoning in a Caribbean kitchen. It is the essence of our cooking.
  • Carrots and celery stalks: these two ingredients are very useful in the kitchen. They are versatile. Use them in stews, soups, and salads. In this recipe and many other roasting recipes, I place them to the pan’s bottom to help the meat cook evenly and not get stuck to the bottom of the pan. Also, I use them to add flavor.
  • The acidic liquids: lemon juice and sour orange juice. Both items can be found at your local supermarket or on Amazon. They add flavor to meat, poultry, and seafood. Acidic agents help to tenderize meat.
  • Salt: a popular seasoning used in cooking and baking. Use in moderation as it can cause many illnesses when consumed in large quantities.
  • Noubess Steak Seasoning and Noubess Garlic and Herb Seasoning, both can be found at the Noubess Shop. They are perfect for meat and poultry and add tons of flavors.
  • Olive oil: good olive oil is best for cooking nutritious meals.

Tools needed to make the slow cooker pulled pork

How to make my Crispy and Delicious Pulled Pork Caribbean Style

To make this scrumptious dish, here’s how:

  • First, I like to clean the meat by rubbing halves of lemons or limes all over the meat first. Rinse under water and then pat dry.
  • Place the carrots and celery stalks to the bottom of the slow cooker or crockpot pan. Place the pork shoulder and add the seasonings and spices.
  • Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours or 8 hours on slow or until the meat is fork-tender and falling apart.
  • With a meat lifter fork, carefully remove the meat and place it onto a large pan or plate to shred. (make sure you save the liquid)
  • With a fork or two, shred the meat. Season the meat with Noubess Garlic and Herb.
  • At this point, you can either roast the shredded meat under the broiler in the oven or pan-fry it on the stovetop.
  • If pan-frying, do it in batches and use very little oil at a time.
  • Mix with a mixture of diced red onion, and diced sweet peppers at the end.

Recipes Tips and Notes

  • I like to shred the meat thinly. This way, it is it comes out very crispy.
  • I prefer pan-frying instead of under the broiler. I mix the peppers and onion with the meat – this gives it a slightly tangy taste.
  • Use a heavy skillet – I use Le Creuset Skillet.
  • Reserve the cooking liquid to make a sauce for dipping or cook rice and even make a broth for soup.

How to serve pulled pork

There are several ways you can serve this dish. It’s great on a sandwich bun with lettuce and tomatoes, serving with a side of warm cabbage salad, coleslaw, or Baked Macaroni. Hungry for steak and eggs? This is one of the most delicious ways to satisfy your craving.

    Little reminder, let that shoulder rest whole with a foil tent for at least an hour, you don’t want that shoulder to dry out, I’ve worked with pork shoulder for years, it NEEDS to rest or it will dry out to some degree. Letting those juices return to the meat will elevate the flavors that were pulled in during the slow cook. And to pull properly, it must reach between 195 to 205 degrees Celsius it will fall apart just using your hands and it will lovely.
