I love pulled pork - we make it from this recipe about once every 3 months but Robin's photo of her version of Mr. Brown's Pulled Pork looked so wonderful, I though I'll have to give that one a try too. Hers was an adapted version of the original (Dutch). I have further adapted hers.

The meat is great as a main meal with vegetables and potatoes or with a salad or even as a sandwich filler. My favourite way is to have it as a kebab-type filling in pitta bread with salad.

I have included this in the North American recipe category as a homage to the original.

  5. Cover with tin-foil and cook for 4 hours

Chef's notes

If you are not to use it all in one go, only shred what you will use straight away, store the remainder in the refrigerator, unshredded in a Lock & Lock box. This way it will stay moist. Follow the RSPCA Think Pig Checklist to make sure that your pork has come from pigs that have been reared to higher welfare standards.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
