A Pulled Pork Feast

I thought I would take a second to appreciate the fine art of cookery that my boyfriend has mastered. We are huge foodies but I will be honest and admit to not enjoying the cooking part. I just really LOVE the eating bit! My boyfriend went to Uni which I think helped him massively in learning to cook and he has a huge passion for it now. He has made everything from home made burgers in the summer to amazing meals like fajitas and home made Mexican Green salsa.

So here is one of his masterpieces: BBQ Pulled Pork Sub’s.

He marinated the pork shoulder in gravy and BBQ sauce for a few hours in our new Waitrose dish. The Pork was checked every so often to turn it over and make it lovely and soft throughout. He put a smidge of coriander in with it as well to give it some more flavour.

To finish it off he placed 2 large subs in the oven to warm and toast slightly then put a thin layer of cranberry sauce on the bread. I know you’re all thinking CRANBERRY SAUCE, Really?? I was apprehensive at first too but soon changed my mind. It was so complimentary to the pork. We added some salad and cheese and a squirt more of BBQ sauce and eh voila! A masterpiece don’t you think?? And here was the finished product…

Red’s True Barbecue Leeds

So back in November, Bob (that’s the bf btw) and I decided to go with my Mum, brother and step-dad to experience the amazing red’s true barbecue in Leeds city centre. I absolutely love food and will try anything at least once but barbecue food is definitely one of my favourites.¬†Below is my brother and I pre-food having a moment of madness obviously.

We got there at 3:15 on the train from York and headed straight there. You can’t book on a Saturday night though so we booked to come back at 5:15pm and wandered into the city for some drinks. We headed to Brooklyn bar which is now my new favourite haunt in Leeds. its quite small and below the train line but had great cocktails which were 2 for ¬£10.

We went back to red’s at 5 pm when they rang to say the table was ready and as soon as we saw the menu we were all amazed by the choices. I chose a pulled chicken hogie (like a hot dog bun with all the meat in) and had two sides of slaw and fries. It was amazing. Bob had ribs and wings with extra spicy sauce and he said it was incredible.

All in all we will definitely go back but maybe not fill up so much on cocktails beforehand and save room for more meat.
