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.

Braised Pork Neck with Onion Gravy
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

  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 & 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.

Beef Goulash With Sausages
Instructions
  1. First, sear the beef in a big pot while cutting the sausages into slices
  2. Next, take out the beef, put it aside and fry the sausages in the same pot until they start to become crispy
  3. Now, take out the sausages, fry the onions and add the garlic to fry for 2-3 minutes, too
  4. When the onions and garlic become golden brown, add the peppers
  5. Sautée them for a minute, before adding all the fried meat again
  6. Add the remaining ingredients (canned tomatoes, tomato paste, butter, water) and all seasonings, too
  7. Finally, let it cook for 4-5 hours at low heat with the lid on while stiring occasionally.
Recipe Notes

Attention: To prevent the goulash from scorching, don't forget stiring it or adding some water from time to time.

The goulash is perfect when the peppers, tomatoes and onions all dissolved into one mixture and when the meat is soft.

It tastes best after 1-2 days in the fridge! In addition, I like to eat it with some cream cheese or zoodles.
