Pulled Pork. It’s so on trend right now. London is in love with the flavours of the Deep South. We are seeing pulled pork, buttermilk fried chicken, hush puppies and all that on lots of menus.
From street food stalls to high end eateries, we have embraced these dishes and served them up with our own twist. I have collected so many Pulled Pork recipes and have not had a chance to try them all. Some of these are quite intriguing like the one that uses a can of coke, ketchup and some chopped onions in a slow cooker. I will have to test that one out soon.
Here is a very easy Pulled Pork recipe that I cooked recently for the Waitrose BBQ Off party. It’s one that Heston did for his Ultimate BBQ series for Waitrose. It doesn’t take that long, only 1 1/2 hours on the stove and is really good. This recipe yields quite a lot of BBQ sauce too and I used that leftover sauce to make some BBQ Pork Ribs too. I just added the ribs to the leftover sauce in the pan, braised them for about an hour and grilled them for the nice charred effect after. I will definitely make this one over and over again.
For this I used my new cast iron Chasseur pot from Viking which has a 5.2 litre capacity, ample for the amount of pork in my recipe. These pots are really heavy and solid and has a matt black finish. The heavy cast iron ensure even heat distribution and is great for this slow cooking recipe. After cookign it it was very easy to clean too (it’s also dishwasher safe). Their cookshop is on sale right now and you can get these cast irons posts at a really great bargain price. Top tip: In the sale, you can get a Chasseur cast iron pot for about 1/3 of the price of a Le Creuset equivalent.
