Episode 4 of the Hairy Bikers gourmet TV show has produced some great recipes worthy of any party, and their Spicy pulled pork with sage and onion stuffing and barbecue sauce is perfect as the main course. Ideally pulled pork should be slow cooked by barbecue or hot smoked in a specialist oven, it creates a huge depth of flavour and really tender flesh. The Hairy Bikers have opted for a slow cook in a conventional oven and have created a great spice rub mix that will inject some of that much needed flavour.

Yummy! The Hairy Bikers create yet another delicious recipe for their party food show.

The beauty of using puff pastry is that you get so much from such a small and easy to work with ingredient.
