Last night Bron completed part two of our pulled pork adventure. A couple of weeks ago Bron made a slow cooker coca cola pulled pork.
Last night Bron prepared a slow oven cooked pork butt with brine, molasses and a rub.
I forgot to copy down the recipe but I think it went a long the lines of soaking the pork butt in molasses and brine overnight and then after drying, it was rubbed with ground cumin seeds, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, onion powder, paprika and chilli. The pork butt was then placed in a low oven for a few hours. I made a mistake last night when I told an Instagram friend that it was cooked in a slow cooker.
I like big butts when it’s Bron pulled pork butt 😉
You can see the pork as it emerged from the oven and then after Bron had pulled apart the cooked and tender muscle fibre bundles. The smell in the kitchen was amazing.
We were having sandwiches again and Bron made a lovely coleslaw to balance the meatiness of the pork.
The colours of coleslaw always make me feel happy.
One of the necessary items for a really good sandwich is a really soft and fresh bread roll.
Bron bought extras because she knew I was hungry.
The pulled pork sandwich
This is my first sandwich. Pulled pork, coleslaw and a nice smokey barbecue sauce on a fresh soft white bread roll.
Bron had separated the rind from the butt and put it in the oven to continue rendering. It contained all the rubbed in flavour and we both agreed it would be a great addition to a sandwich.
You can see the lovely layer of dark flavoured pork butt fat as the first layer on my sandwich. This was happiness on a plate. It tasted so good.
To finish the evening’s dining Bron made a chocolate hazelnut meringue layer cake
It was topped with a snow white chocolate flake 🙂
My slice was thin, it had to be. It was so rich and fulfilling.
Served with strawberries in syrup
Thank you Bron for a spectacular meal.
