- Sausages (chorizo, wurst, and longganisa fall into this general category)
- Cebu lechon (only from Cebu!)
- Majestic ham (a Christmas family tradition)
- Pulled pork sandwiches
After Marlon and I attacked the cooked, tender meat with forks and left it to soak up the sauce, I made a broccoli slaw to go with it. I don’t usually like slaw, but I like this recipe for broccoli slaw because it uses zero mayonnaise. Instead, it uses vinegar (I substituted apple cider with red wine) and wholegrain mustard to give the slaw a delectable zing.
Then all we had to do was plop a generous serving of pulled pork onto toasted hamburger buns and add a dollop of broccoli slaw. Et voila, our homemade pulled pork sandwiches!
The crunch and acidic tang of the slaw cuts right into the soft and sweet pork, making a yummy match. The pork is heavy though, so I don’t see myself doing this at home too often. But to fulfill a craving that comes once in a blue moon, it’s more than enough. This will keep me in good stead until pork and I have our Christmas reunion.
