Cumin Spiced Pulled Pork 

Serves 8 

4 - 5 pound pork butt  

2 teaspoons ground cumin  

Ground black pepper 

2 cups pineapple juice  

¾ cup soy sauce 

¼ cup balsamic vinegar  

2 tablespoons olive oil  

2 tablespoons honey  

4 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and minced  

1 Vidalia onion, finely chopped  

1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped  

3 fresh jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped  

6 garlic cloves, minced  

Salt and coarsely ground black pepper, to taste


Rub pork butt with cumin and black pepper and place in an extra-large glass or plastic bowl. In another large bowl, combine pineapple juice, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, honey, ginger, onion, cilantro, jalapeños, and garlic. Pour mixture over pork, cover and refrigerate overnight for 12 hours, turning pork once.  
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  
Pour half of the marinade from pork into small bowl, cover, and refrigerate.  
Bake pork in large roasting pan, covered for 3 ½ hours. Remove from oven. Uncover, allow pork to cool slightly, and use a fork to shred meat. Discard pan drippings. Place shredded pork in a clean pan.  
Boil reserved marinade for 5 minutes to slightly reduce. Pour the desired amount of boiled marinade over pork.  
Return pork to oven and roast uncovered until crisp. Add additional cumin, salt and pepper to taste.
