Pressure Cooker

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
salt
1 tsp
red pepper flakes
2 tsp
oregano, dried
1 tsp
white pepper
1 tsp
white pepper
1 tsp
cumin, ground
1/8 tsp
coriander
1/8 tsp
cayenne pepper

END OF SPICES

1 large
onion, chopped fine
3 lb
pork shoulder or other cheap cut
2 Tbsp
vegetable oil
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix together all the spices.
Trim the pork so you still have some fat, fat is flavor after all. You want at least 10%. Cut the pork into 1 1/2 lb pieces and dust with spice mix. Rub it in good. Pat it, slap it. Make sure you get it into all nooks and crannies.
2
Place in plastic bag and store in refrigerator for at least 2 hours up to over night.
3
When ready to cook, in your pressure cooker add the vegetable oil and bring to shimmer. Add pork and brown off all sides. Add 3 cups of water or just enough to come half way up the pork. Add diced onions. Bring up to a boil and seal the pressure cooker. When it starts to spit on high pressure reduce heat just enough to maintain the hiss.
4
Cook for 1 hour on high pressure. Remove from heat and allow to depressurize naturally. In other words just let it cool down. This is important. Don't be in a hurry.
5
Take out the pork with a slotted spoon. It will just fall apart so do not try a fork or other implement of destruction. Make sure you get some of the onions mixed in with the pork.
6
With two forks pull the pork apart, hence pulled pork. Now it is up to you what to do with it but I will bet you will not be able to resist mixing a little bit together with a good BBQ sauce and making a sandwich. Betcha.
7
If you want you can add a couple of tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa to make this really authentic.
