Finally, I have an easy recipe for pulled pork that anyone can handle!
4 lb pork butt or picnic cut (For this I used picnic cut)
4 cups water
2 cups orange juice
3 tsp salt
Cut the pork into large strips. About 3 inches long and 1 inch or more thick.
*Do not remove the fat! This is essential in keeping the pork moist during this long cooking process.
Add pork strips to large stock pot, turning the heat on high.
Add in liquids and salt.
Bring to a rolling boil, then turn heat down to medium heat.
Allow to simmer for approx. 2 hours.
Do not touch the pot, let the meat cook without interruption.
After two hours, the juices/fats will have reduced dramatically.
Turn heat a touch higher to continue cooking the pork through; stirring the meat till browned all around. The pieces will start to fall apart on their own as you stir.
This process can take up to forty -five minutes. All the meat will be browned, and the fat pieces that are no longer breaking down further can be removed. All the liquid will be gone.
