The recipe for Cook the Book Fridays from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen is one I’ll be making again and again – one of the easiest and most flavourful pulled pork recipes I’ve made. Paprika, chipotle powder, cumin, cinnamon, and cocoa powder form the base of a dry rub that the pork shoulder sits in overnight. Then you make a sauce/ marinade with beer, barbecue sauce, red wine vinegar, tomato paste, soy sauce and some spice (e.g. Tabasco) and cook the pork in this at a low temperature for around 3 hours. A pretty hands-off recipe where honestly, the hardest part was trying to make this dish look halfway photogenic (sometimes the most delicious dishes are the least photogenic!). I really enjoyed the subtle “smokiness” of this dish (use the best quality barbecue sauce you can here!) and it’s a bonus that it’s so flavourful with very little hands-on time!
I’ve been enjoying this as pulled pork sandwiches, served with coleslaw this week – it’s the perfect make-ahead dish to see you through a busy week and, as we enter the summer months, I’m wondering if this would work in a slow cooker so I don’t have to have the oven heated up any more? I reckon it will so this just might be a summer staple.
