Four Ways with Pulled Pork
Four Ways With Pulled Pork
February 22nd, 2023
With apologies to any vegetarians in the room, we have stumbled upon these traditional words of American kitchen wisdom: ‘There isn’t an animal on earth that isn’t made better with one-third brown sugar, one-third salt and one-third smoked paprika.’ Which neatly sums up the irresistible deliciousness of pulled pork.
This is a true barbecued classic, from a melding of Spanish flavours and Indigenous cooking techniques – pork cooked long and slow over fire until the meat is so meltingly soft it can be pulled apart with two forks. It’s a staple in America’s Carolinas, where they don’t even call it pulled pork, but simply ‘barbecue’, and serve it up with ‘pig sauce’ (the people of the Carolinas don’t waste their words where food’s concerned).
If you were to make this for yourself, as well as 24 slightly stressful hours of prepping and cooking, there’d be serious decision-making needed… Which spices for the sweetest dry rub? Which wood for the perfect smoky flavour? Shoulder or Boston Butt for that melting porkiness? Civilisations have fallen, and MasterChef contestants wept, over such pressing matters. Fortunately, Dinner Ladies will deliver to your door a generous serving of spice-rubbed, slow-roast pulled pork in a tangy, sweet barbecue sauce.
You might love it packed into a warm milk bun with crunchy coleslaw, or in a crisp taco with shredded lettuce, pickled jalapenos and guacamole. It’s one of the most versatile dishes on our menu - with an order of our slow-roast pulled pork in home-made barbecue sauce in your freezer you've got a multitude of easy Tex-Mex dinners at the ready. Below are four of our favourites. Grab yourself an avocado and a lime, too – all taste even better with a dollop of creamy, tangy guacamole.
