Sally’s pulled pork

Pulled pork is an extremely tender pork dish with a spicy touch. It takes some preparation and time but is not difficult to make. In this recipe, we prepare it in the oven. Even though the roast here is not prepared on charcoal, Mill & Mortar’s ‘Smokey Sally’ still gives that characteristic smoky flavour to the dish.

Step 1

Roast: Combine the rub ingredients and massage it around the meat. Wrap the roast in aluminium foil and let it rest in the fridge for 12 to 24 hours. Take the roast out of the fridge for the last 2 hours to bring it back to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 110 °C and pop the roast in. Use a meat thermometer to check the roast. It will be done when the core temperature reaches 90 - 93 °C. Depending on the size of the roast, this generally takes about 10 hours. Remove the roast from the oven and pour a few spoonfuls of apple juice or apple cider vinegar over it. Leave to rest for half an hour. Finally, pull the buttery meat into stringy tufts with two forks.
