BBQ Pulled Pork w/ Cornbread & Slaw

BBQ Pulled Pork w/ Cornbread & Slaw

You're not going to find a BBQ or cornbread recipe here.  That's way too much typing.  Get a box of Jiffy Mix and some Bubs BBQ.

Feeds about 6 people.

You need a pot that can fit all the pork on the bottom and go into the oven.

Get this going first:

  • 4lb of pork - go for butt or shoulder (some people are into the shoulder), you want something with some fat on it, so don't get all yuppie on me and buy tenderloin
  • 1/4c of chili powder (the mix, NOT straight cayenne) and 1/4c of ground cumin
  • TBSP of salt

Turn your oven on to 300.

Wash and pat dry the pork.  Get a few TBSP of oil heating up in your pot on the stove.  Mix the spices and salt together, then rub the outside of the pork.  Put it into the hot oil in the pot.  You want to brown each side, so let it sear for 3-5 min, then turn it.  Put the lid on the pot, and put it in the oven for 3 hours.

Then, make the cornbread:
BBQ ingredients.  Have at it.
Follow a recipe from the Jiffy box.  Or look that shit up.  It should cook in the oven for about an hour.  Even though the box says to cook at 350, just put it in with the pork.

If you're making BBQ, now is a good time.

And lastly, make your slaw:

  • 1 small head of purple cabbage
  • 1 small head of green cabbage
  • 4 carrots
  • 1c mayo
  • 2 TBSP vinegar
  • 3 TBSP honey
  • 1 TBSP parsley or some other nice fresh herb
  • Salt and pepper
Shred the cabbage and carrots.  Separately, mix the mayo, vinegar and honey.  Then mix all that business together and put it in the fridge until the pork is done.
