1. You'll need a slow cooker for this recipe.
2. To make a dry rub grind the garlic and all the spices to a fine paste.
3. Heat the olive oil in a medium fry pan over medium to high heat. Add pork and brown for 2 minutes on each side.
4. Transfer pork to a chopping board and with a sharp pointed knife, poke small pockets randomly into the pork flesh.
5. Rub the dry mix all over the pork, getting inside those pockets.
6. Place the onion and sprinkle pink salt in your slow cooker.
7. Add the pork and the apple vinegar - cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours.
8. Remove the pork and shred into small pieces with two forks.
9. OPTIONAL: if you like it ‘saucy’ - add the shredded pork into the sauce (left over) and mix well.
