Sweet & spicy brandy pulled pork

The final product, my sweet & spicy Brandy pulled pork.

Prep + cook time = 7hours
Consumption time = > 1/2 hour πŸ˜…

A dish like this requires a little planning, a lot of love, patience and minimal supervision.

A dish that, once prepped, can be left to cook in the background on a slow fire, while you prep a couple of drinks, turn on some music or a movie, sit down with your family and friends and relax.

The melt-in-your-mouth meat cooked on a slow fire, stewing in a rich broth formed from the spice in the dry rub, the smokey sweetness of the liquid marinade.

Tablespoons full topped over a crisp rusk (thats right, a multigrain rusk) along with finely chopped capers & pickled red chillies.

Muuuah! Perfection!

  • 1/3 cup chopped pickled red chillies


1. Mix all the dry powders in a bowl and marinade the meat with it. Allow to sit for an hour.

2. Mix all the liquid ingredients + palm sugar and pour over the meat. Cover with clingfilm and allow to marinade overnight.

4. Post cooking. keep the lid aside and cook the meat on a medium to high flame to thicken the liquid.
