Italian Pulled Pork

No barbecue sauce here! The pork is rubbed with a flavorful Italian-inspired paste made with toasted fennel, fresh herbs, garlic, dried chile, and lemon zest.

Cook's Notes

If you're making the pork ahead of time, store it whole in the pan juices for up to three days in an airtight container in the refrigerator, then rewarm and shred before serving. We used a Japanese Benriner mandoline to cut the paper-thin slices of fennel.

    This was delicious and so tender. Very easy to make, too. I put it in my slow cooker on low for 8 hours. Turned out perfect. Will definitely make again.
