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. The slow cooking should still produce lovely tender flesh that can be pulled from the bone. The bikers spiced pulled pork recipe uses a lot of spices so it won’t be too kind on the budget, but as a main course for your party it can be justified and will impress your guests.
Top tips for your Hairy Bikers pulled pork
- Marinade your pork for at least two hours. Aim for an overnight marinade if you can though.
- Allow your cooked pulled pork to rest for at least 15-20 minutes to help it relax and become tender.
- To get an authentic pulled pork texture, use two forks to shred the pork from the bones.
