  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Kale Slaw

  • 12 ounce bag kale slaw
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • Preheat the Dutch oven to 325°F.
  • Trim the fat off the pork shoulder.
  • Combine the brown sugar, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the pork thoroughly with the spice mixture. Allow the pork to sit on the countertop for about 30 minutes.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown the pork on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. 
  • Cover and put in the oven for 3 ½ to 4 hours until the meat is extremely tender and pulls away from the bone easily. Shred the pork in the pot with the juices.

  • In a small, jar with a lid combine the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt, and pepper. Shake until the vinaigrette is emulsified.
  • Pour kale slaw mix into a large bowl. Pour dressing over slaw and toss to combine.
