Easy Pulled Pork - Braised Pork Neck With Onion Gravy
This is my foolproof, super easy pulled pork recipe for which you don't even need a smoker or barbecue grill. It is simply a matter of searing the meat in a pot and braising it for a few hours until most of the water is evaporated. In addition to that, the onion gravy sauce that is prepared with the meat stock really tops it off.

Instructions
Pork Neck
  1. First, melt the coconut oil in a medium-big pot on medium heat and sear the pork neck in it on each side, for about 5 minutes in total
  2. Next, pour about 3-5 liters of water into the pot. Add enough water to cover the meat, then add about 1/3 to 1/2 of that volume of water on top. So, if you need 3 liters to cover the meat, add 1 to 1.5 liters on top
  3. Now, add the salt, pepper & cumin and put a lid on the pot, but leave a small gap so the water is able to evaporate
  4. Let the pork neck cook on low-medium heat for 4-5 hours until you have 400-500 milliliter of water left and the meat is tender. Then, you can turn the plate off. Make sure to flip the meat 2-3 times within the last 2 hours, if it is not completely covered with water anymore

Sauce
  1. When the pork neck is done, melt the butter in a pan on low-medium heat. Then, add the onions and fry them for 5-10 minutes until they become golden brown

  2. Now, add salt, pepper & -if you like- a minced garlic clove and fry everything for about 1 minute while stirring
  3. Next, add about 400 milliliter of meat stock from the pot with the pork neck to the pan in order to deglaze the onions

  4. Finally, let everything cook for 10-15 minutes while stirring occasionally until you have a sauce of your desired thickness. In the meantime, cover the pot containing the meat with a lid to keep it warm

Recipe Notes

The method in this recipe works with nearly any type of meat, but best with cuts that contain fat, bones & some gristle like beef shank or ham hock.

You may also enhance the sauce by deglazing the onions with red wine and let it cook for a minute before adding the meat stock.

  5. Finally, put the baking tray into the oven for about 20 minutes until the cookies get some brown color. They are perfect if they have a slight crispness outside and are still soft inside

Recipe Notes

You may also add a pinch of cinnamon or some pure cacao powder to the dough if you like.
For the cacao, I'd recommend using 1-2 teaspoons.

Another way to modify these cookies is adding about 1 tablespoon of low carb chocolate chips to the dough right in the beginning, simply sprinkle some on top before baking or making a chocolate frosting after the cookies are baked and cooled down.
