Asian Pulled Pork


Recommended Posts

Cooked this today on the ProQ, took a little over 12 hours to cook at 225F but well worth it. Lovely flavour, little bit different from the usual rubs , but very aromatic and well worth trying imho. Leftovers will be used in pulled pork cannelloni tomorrow

Decided to serve it in warmed up piitta bread with a layer of chopped spring onions on the bottom with layers of the pulled pork with Hoisin Dipping Sauce in between each layer

For the Rub I ran all ingredients ran through spice grinder into powder and after adding a couple of tbsp of soya sauce to the meat added to the rub over it made a lovely bark

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. cloves

1 tsp. ground ginger

2 whole star anise

2 tsp. black peppercorns

1 tbsp. paprika

1 tsp. dried lemongrass

2 tbs. brown sugar

2 tbsp. Kosher salt

Lovely, how much of the rub could you taste in the cooked pork?

it is a not a strong flavour compare to a normal rub. If you like char sui pork, not exact but that sort of strength and profile iyswim On a side note, I used the Hoisin Dipping Sauce (like you get with the aromatic duck pancakes) rather than the Hoisin Sauce you cook with stir fry's

I've used it on ribs and duck and works well imho, very different from the spicy peppery rubs that most people use. Was going to do cannelloni tonight, with the leftovers. But couldn't get any ricotta cheese or philadelphia today, so cobbled together a pork cottage pie? heated the pork up in a frying pan and added some passata. put it in the bottom of a serving dish, once cooked through. Put some buttery mashed potato on top and then some grated cheese and stuck it under the grill for 8 minutes till nice and crisp on top. Served with some Veg it was very tasty and we both agreed, would do this again. Amazing what you can throw together on a whim and ends up tasting nice.
