IT’S FRIDAY- I’m really bloody excited about this because it means… Pulled Pork! Last week I was sent a wee parcel from the lovely Cherie from Pepper & Me which contained four jars of deliciousness. Cherie is a bit of a bloody genius and crafts up the most amazing spice blends and pastes to help aid and support lactation.
You’re probably thinking.. “errr but what if I’m not lactating? This doesn’t concern me!”. UHM YES! Yes it does! As I said, this lady is a genius AND they’re crafted up so anyone and everyone (including dudes) can use these whether you’ve got milky boobs or not!
I’ve spent the last week testing these beauts and the recipes on her website out and I’m hooked! Every single one of them is absolutely amazing and delicious. As soon as I saw her pulled pork recipe, I knew that had to be the first thing to make.
The hockey was on so I made use of the 4am start and whacked it in the slow cooker ready for our lunch. SO, SO, SO, soooooooooo good. Sunday was pulled pork sliders, Monday was pulled pork tortillas aaaand we even had enough left over to make three lots of lunches. Happy tums all round for a few days!
Recipe from the lovely Pepper & Me!
What you’ll need

2 KG Piece of Pork Shoulder or Leg Bone in or out, either is fine
3 TBL Mexellent Milkshakes Paste

2 Carrots peeled and chopped

1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
1 chopped Chilli (optional)

– slider buns
and whatever else your tum fancies!
What to do
– Rub the spice paste and bbq sauce over the pork, and place into the slow cooker with the carrots and onions. Cover with water or stock, and turn on high for 4-5 hours or low for the day if you are popping in on in the morning, it should be lovely and tender by dinner time.
– Strain the liquid off the meat, and using two forks, shred into nice mouthfuls.
