A sweet and smokey American inspired pulled pork recipe that goes great served on fresh bread rolls with lashings of your favourite BBQ sauce
This is one of our favourites at True Bites HQ. I mean, what's not to like really? It's sweet, it's sticky and it's pulled pork. It's also super simple to make, especially in a slow cooker, all you have to do is chuck all the ingredients in and leave it to cook for a few hours. As with a good beef burger, pulled pork should always be served on a brioche bun, trust us, once you've gone brioche, you won't want to go back to regular burger buns. This one also works great topped with a nice coleslaw.
The key to great tasting pulled pork is quality ingredients, so please whenever you can use our British pork, it really will take your pulled pork to the next level. Give it a go and let us know what you think in the comments below.
