As requested by the Baby, I made this as part of ‘Max’s Dinner‘ from Where the Wild Things Are.
A nice hearty pork stew, but no hot dinner is complete without a few veggies. Paired with cake – this makes the perfect meal fit for the King of the Wild Things.
2-3 pound bone in pork shoulder
1 onion, chopped
2 ribs of celery
10 ounces apple juice
1 cup water
1 clove garlic, minced
fresh ground pepper
Chop the onions and place them in the bottom of a crock pot. Place the pork shoulder in the center, rubbing it with the garlic, salt and seasoning with the pepper.
Peel and chop the potatoes, carrots and celery, placing them around the pork.
Pour the apple juice and water along the outside of the pot.
Turn the crock pot on low for 8 hours.
The pork will pull right off the bone, so that you can easily toss the bone away and you’re ready to serve!
