This Saturday evening provided us with fantastic guest’s, sunshine and good food. With a couple of days of useful planning we hosted a BBQ for 12 adults and 11 children for less than £20 ( vino excluded of course !)
One of the most enjoyed aspects of the BBQ was the pulled pork burgers, I picked up two pork joints from Co-Op for £2 each and the rolls were also in the reduced bakery shelf in Sainsburys. This was a simple dish to prepare with great results. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
You will need…..(based on 2 pork joints, half your ingredients for 1 joint)
2 pork joints
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar or red wine vinegar
4 tbsp runny honey
1 tbsp mustard
2 tbsp. BBQ rub or 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce.
1 pints of chicken stock
If you have a slowcooker or if you have an oven dish with a lid, pop the pork and everything else in and coat the meat with the juices, cover and cook on a high heat for one hour and then turn the heat down to a low setting and cook for 4 hours.
Turn of the heat and remove the lid and allow the meat to cool.
Once the meat has cooled , skim as much fat from the top of the sauce as possible,( a great tip is to pop this fat into a container and pop it into the fridge, use this fat for roast potatoes !)
Take small bits of pork at a time , and shred them using two forks.
Add some of the sauce from the pan , so that the meat looks moist.
Reheat this when you are ready to serve it. This meat is great in a bun, on top of a burger, mixed in with cheese, the choices are endless, but they will all provide delicious results.
