Thought I'd start the new year with something exciting, but I haven't actually made anything exciting lately so I'm posting these lazy pulled pork recipes instead to reflect my laziness as of late.
You can probably tell from the fact that my first post of 2015 comes a whole 27 days into the new year (:
January is usually my laziest month of the year, especially having just come back from holidays a couple of weeks back and being plunged back into normal life. Thank goodness it's still holidays!
Pulled pork is something I've always wanted to make, but given the time it takes to cooked pulled pork, I've shyed away from it (slow cooking isn't really my thing). That is, until I had the idea of cooking the leftover pork from my mum's Asian soups in the sauce to cut the cooking time down to around 5 minutes! The result is amazing- nice soft pork in sweet BBQ sauce. I can't say it's exactly the same as the real stuff, but it's pretty damn close!
The first couple of times I just sandwiched it between bread. The buns in the pictures are a little bit burnt since I put them in the oven on grill rather than the oven setting haha.....
And then I started getting bored of pulled pork sandwiches so I made pizza instead! I used a BBQ sauce base for the pizza (as if the sauce on the pork wasn't enough!) and topped it with what little I could find in the fridge- you needn't put much else on the pizza though, the pulled pork by itself makes a great pizza!
Hopefully will be getting back into proper baking soon, though it's difficult when the weather is crazy hot most days.
(Leftover) Pulled Pork recipe
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/3 cup worcesterchire sauce
1/3 cup vinegar
1tsp garlic powder (optional)

Simply combine all of the ingredients, then heat on stove over a medium flame until the sauce thickens.
For pulled pork pizza I used my usual pizza recipe here with pulled pork as the topping instead
