To start this off, make sure you have approximately 6 to 8 hours for this to cook before serving. In you slow cooker add a shoulder of pork with some roughly chopped onions and 4 cloves of smashed up garlic. In a separate bowl add 2 tsp of English mustard with 4 tbsp of honey. To this add sea salt and, freshly ground black pepper. Mix this all together and taste it, make sure that it is equal parts sweet and spicy.
Pour this over the pork and add 200ml of water and place onto a low heat and leave to cook. If you can keep checking up on the meat, moving it around and adding more water when it needs it.
When the pork is perfectly soft and tender, it is time to put the rice on to cook, here is my partner to tell you how to cook the perfect rice:
Greetings to all! I do like some good well cooked rice, I’ve become quite a rice connoisseur. The key to rice is softness, if its not soft, its not right and it certainly wont be enjoyable to eat.
To start off, you need the following:
1 Pan with a suitable lid, if you don’t have a lid, alternatives could be used such as tin foil.
Rice of course.
And that’s pretty much it!
Step 1: To start, use a cup to scoop out your rice and place it in the pan. Wash the rice in the pan while gently pouring the excess water out, try to prevent rice from falling out of the pan! This is important to stop the rice from sticking when cooked.
Step 2: Fill the pan with water until its roughly 1CM above the rice and turn the hob on until the water starts to really bubble away!
Step 3: Once the water is bubbling, give the rice a quick stir and turn the heat way down, not off. Place the lid or alternative over the pan and let the rice steam.
Note* Check up on the rice every 5-10minutes after the initial 10minutes of steaming, ensure there’s still water at the bottom of the pan to prevent the rice from burning and keep taking small amounts out to check the softness, once the rice is soft, continue to steam until the rice is slightly dry, this process tends to be the most risky as there will be little water to stop the rice from burning.
Shred the pork and mix into the left over juice. Place the pork over the rice you have just made, and pour some of the juice over the pork. To finish add some fresh parsley and serve.
I hope you enjoy this recipe 🙂
