Pulled Pork is one of those foods that I only first found out about after watching countless episodes of Man Vs Food, and then discovered that it’s quite hard to come across in the UK since it being primarily a US dish. Pulled Pork has started to catch on in the UK and is becoming quite the trend, especially with burger restaurants adding it as a topping to gourmet burgers.
The texture of well cooked pulled pork is something heavenly. It’s soft, it’s chewy, and most importantly, it’s meaty. Pulled pork usually comes flavoured with barbecue seasoning, but can also be spicy, and sometimes flavoured with cider and herbs rather than spices.
I started first making pulled pork when I first purchased a slow cooker. Pork shoulder is a pretty cheap cut, and in my eyes one of the best thanks to the way it lends itself to slow cooking. My recipe is simple, customisable, and can’t really go wrong. One day I’d love to cook a pork shoulder in a bbq/smoker for the true authentic smoky flavour that pulled pork has.
Serve with a baked potato or fries, coleslaw, and preferably in a soft white burger bun. A bit of chilli sauce wouldn’t go a miss here either.
