Pork is a tasty and tender meat which lends itself to fast cooking on a weekday night, perfect for frying, stir-fying, grilling or barbecuing in a number of easy pork recipes.
When purchasing pork try to look for the more flavoursome free-range, organic or rare-breed pork which will generally be a deeper pink colour than commercially produced pork.
Whether roasted, pan fried, stuffed or barbequed we have a delicious selection of succulent easy pork recipes to try including pulled pork.
Pulled pork is an American invention which has translated well overseas where the meat is cooked so gently it falls apart in your fingers and melts in your mouth and is perfect stuffed into a roll with a piquant sauce. Try making this on the weekend as it takes longer to prepare and enjoy the fruits of your labour throughout the week.
