The Famous Pulled Pork Burger

It’s sunday – it’s hangover time – it’s burger time! And nothing beats a perfect pulled pork burger?? We have made pulled pork for years – even before it was know in Denmark. We make it from a whole ham, which we smoke at a low temperature for 18-20 hours before it’s pulled and eaten. Most people in Denmark use a pork collar which they prepare in the oven or  in a charcoal grill, but rarely in a smoker! Actually many famous Danish chefs recommend using pork collar and we couldn’t disagree more!! The biggest difference between the methods and meat cuts is the taste. Smoking the meat for hours and in a proper smoker gives the meat so much flavor and a beautiful beautiful color which you will never e able to obtain in the oven or in a charcoal grill.
But enough about our complaints and disagreements, and on to the pulled pork burger 🙂

We often make burgers: blue cheese burger, peanut butter burgers, cheese burgers etc. but this is without doubt our favorite burger in the whole world – and many of our friends seems to agree with this 🙂 You should try it – we’ll guarantee that you will LOVE it!

 

Ingredients (2 burgers)

1 1/2 cup pulled pork

1 cup coleslaw

2 burger buns (ciabatta is preferable)

1 tbsp. mayo

1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. whisky bbq sauce

 

Heat the pulled pork in a sauce pan and add 1/2 cup bbq sauce – stir to combine and remove from heat when the bbq sauce begins to caramelize.

Summer Slaw

Once again we have made a slaw experiment 🙂 This time wanted to make a summer version and decided to replace the apple cider vinegar with lemon juice and then add sesame seeds and cilantro. It turned out to perfect when combined with pulled pork in a home made corn tortilla. If you’re not a fan of cilantro (either you hate it or love it), you can use basil instead 🙂

 

Ingredients (4 servings)

1/4 cabbage

1 red onion

1/2 lemon, zest and juice

1/4 cup confectioners sugar

1 tsp. mayo

1 cup sour cream

1 tsp. white sesame seeds

1 tsp. black sesame seeds

1/8 cup cilantro, chopped

 

Place lemon juice, confectioners sugar, mayo and sour cream in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Set aside while slicing the cabbage and onion.

Slice both cabbage and onion finely and combine with lemon zest, chopped cilantro and both white and black sesame seeds. Pour the dressing over cabbage mix and combine well. Fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Traditional Coleslaw

Coleslaw is without doubt a main dish when having a barbecue party, and is perfect for pulled pork, spareribs or smoked pork cheeks.

We have tried many combinations (adding carrots, herbs, low-fat sour cream, chopped jalapeños and lemon), but found this one to be the best. It is the combination of the cabbage, the intense onions, fat from the sour cream, sweetness from the sugar and sourness from the vinegar that makes the coleslaw tasteful and delicious.

 

Ingredients (6-8 servings)

1/2 cabbage

2 red onions

1 cup sour cream (don’t use low-fat)

1/3 cup confectioners sugar

1/8 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp. mayo

 

Cut cabbage and onions into thin slices and mix it together in a bowl.
