Pulled Pork Burgers with Coleslaw and Barbecue Sauce

Pulled pork burger with coleslaw and barbecue sauce is the best with good dark beer

Finally our recipe for incredibly delicious, pulled pork burgers, together with fresh coleslaw and a little bit of barbecue sauce to spice it all up. It is nothing you have tried before. The story about the origins of pulled pork is quite interesting. During the civil war in Southern States of America, while rich farmers used the good parts of the pork, slaves would get cheap and thought cuts. They learned to slowly cook these parts over coal and were typically so hungry that they would pull the pork from the coal when the meat was soft and so tender it almost falls off the roast.

We bought quite a big peace of pork neak fillet for slow roasting which was a perfect opportunity to invite people over and share the great food. One of our first Airbnb guests from Brazil came over with a friend. He was quite excited to see what this great dish was all about. Also many of us from southern countries, including me, have not tasted pulled pork before. But once you do, you will love it. Another friend who is growing his own chilies brought an extreme spicy pure chili extract – That was GOOD 🙂

Or you can prepare it in advance and just serve it in the coziness of your home. The long, slow method of cooking makes the pork tender, juicy and incredibly flavorsome. Hopefully you are now convinced, so let me give you some instruction.
