can i make pulled pork out of lean, boneless pork chops?
i don't have a slow cooker but i have a pot & a lid
from what i read online it is quite dry (lean) so it's not so good with pulled pork, but i could just add coconut oil & bbq sauce to make it taste good. i kind of just want to use this pork for tacos and i hate how chewy it is when i cook it regularly on the frying pan
and if i did slow cook it how long would it take? and how hot should it be, boiling??
Make pork chops out of pork chops, these cuts will never make pulled pork like fatty cuts do.
Coconut oil and bbq sauce would be horrible replacements. It wouldn't gelatinize at all like natural pork fat, and wouldn't taste even close to the same. Plus, the texture would be all off. It'd definitely be tough like you'd hate.
Do you want some pork chop recipes?
I can't think of any way this would work. Just buy cheap pork shoulder next time.
If you brine them and do not over cook them they shouldn't be very chewy. If they're thick cut, pan sear and then finish in the oven. thin ones can be cooked on the stove top.
Humorously enough that's actually not a problem depending on what you are, in terms of the polyunsaturated
But nah, you need the fat and fibers to break down on their own, the pork chops won't soak in the gelatin powder.
You need to let this one go. It won't work unless you go with a pork shoulder or something. When it comes to this kind of cooking, it's all about what the ingredients physically are, naturally. It's hard to fool and work around it.
i don't understand how, if i can actually get it pulled into this texture the flavorings i add will be fine. i don't have a very refined/picky palate my favorite roast beef in the world is arby's
what about this
This is exactly what I do with pork chops. I usually get thick center cut chops, brine them overnight, dry them off, season both sides with salt and pepper and whatever other herbs/spices I feel like using and some olive oil and then sear them in a cast iron pan then stick the pan in the oven and finish.
They come out moist, tender and delicious.
Nah. That's a result of a tough, fatty, chewy cut slowly cooked down. All the fibers and shit inside melt down. Pork chops have a different physical muscle structure, they're much more lean. Despite the fact that they come from the same animal, they produce different dishes. If you grew pumpkins and jalapenos in the same garden, you wouldn't be asking how to use one as the other would you?
If you want shredded lean pork chops, go ahead and do it. Cook them and shred them. It will be tough, dry, and not even close to as tasty. It won't even look the same. We're warning you now.
Stick them in a crock pot with some sauce/liquid and slow cook them for a few hours and they'll fall apart pretty easily. Shredded lean pork just isn't anywhere near as moist and flavorful as a a slow cooked pork shoulder.
>Cook them and shred them. It will be tough, dry, and not even close to as tasty.
so they can actually be shredded though? i'm not worrying so much about them not tasting all that great or being dry, i can put oil/sauce on them.
i just want to see if they can even become shredded/pulled like this: >>7355260
Yes, they can be shredded in the sense that it's a physically weak object that can be pulled apart.
No, it won't look the same. That fine texture is a result of heavy moisture within the pork shoulder.
Stop trying to ruin your dinner. Figure out how to make tasty pork chops. I'm not posting anymore.
it's actually really good senpai
i mean you probably wouldn't like it, nor would you like most things i eat. but i think it's pretty good, way healthier than the fatty cuts of pork also
>fucks his shit up
after i finished i took it out and carved it up with 2 forks then i fried it in coconut oil + bbq sauce mixture
OP, reading your stupid thread pissed me off. You asked if it would work and anons are telling you how it won't with detailed explanation and you still insist... Why even make a thread then, if you won't listen??
