Ingredients

Directions

Day 1: Put the pork cubes in a casserole dish or baking sheet and rub them evenly with the salt and pepper. Cover in plastic and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.

Day 2: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Sear the pork until golden brown on all sides; transfer to a good-quality, high-walled braising pan and pour in the root beer. Cover the braising pan with parchment paper and then aluminum foil.

Place the pan in the oven and set a timer for 1 hour. When the timer goes off, lower the heat to 275 degrees F. Cook for another 2 hours. When the timer goes off again, check the pork to make sure it pulls apart easily. Stick a fork in it and twist--if it pulls apart easily, you're good to go!

Let rest for about 30 minutes. Once cooled, take the pork out of the braising liquid and pull it for sandwiches.

Cook's Note

Rubbing the meat with salt and pepper the day before cooking is not necessary but will make the final product a lot better. The curing process allows for more flavor development during braising. This is a slow cooked labor of love, so take your time! That's how we do it!
