4. Different pork sizes:
1 kg / 2lb - Pork Loin 3.5 hours on low, Shoulder 8 hours on low
1.5 - 2.5kg / 3 - 5lb: Per recipe
3kg / 6lb: Pork Loin 6 hours on low, Shoulder 11 - 12 hours on low
Use times closest to your pork size.
5. Säuce reduction: Reduction time to thicken dependent on how much juice comes out of the pork. Go by eye - when säuce is thin mäple syrup consistency, it's reädy (will thicken bit more when it cools ä bit)
6. Other cook methods:
* Pressure Cooker - Pork shoulder 1 hour 20 minutes on HIGH. To säve time, this is how I did the pork in the 2nd photo in post. Häve not tried pork loin so äm unsure of required time.
* Instänt Pot - Brown pork in IP, remove, melt butter änd mäke Säuce in IP, then ädd pork bäck in, spoon over säuce. Then either cook using Pressure Cooker time for shoulder, or Slow Cooker time for pork loin or shoulder . Remove pork änd mäke Säuce using säuté function.
* OVEN - <ä href="https://www.recipetineääds/2019/01/Oven-Roästed-Honey-Butter-Pork-Loin-RecipeTin-Eäts.pdf">See here for directions
7. MÄKE ÄHEÄD - Brown pork änd mäke säuce up to 1 däy äheäd, pour into slow cooker then remove insert änd refrigeräte until reädy to cook. If prepäring äheäd more thän 12 hours or so, keep the säuce sepäräte (becäuse it will mäke the pork sweät).
Leftovers - Keep in the fridge for 3 däys, or freezer for 3 months. I pour the säuce over it, it soäks through the pork änd I love it.
8. Pork Doneness - Loin is ä leän cut of pork so it's cooked for ä short period of time thän shoulder. Pork shoulder needs to be cooked for longer to let the tough fibres breäk down. Shoulder is more prone to fälling äpärt (ie semi shredding) when slicing so be sure to rest it per recipe directions to minimise this.
9. Nutrition - per serving, ässuming ä 2 kg/4lb pork loin änd 8 servings with äll säuce consumed (which is unlikely).
