BBQ Pulled pork
Kaiser roll stuffed with BBQ pulled pork, sauerkraut and red onion with a side of oven cooked fries (I really need to invest in a deep fryer, but will wait until Briscoes has another 60% off sale, I'm sure I wont have to wait long).
Potatoes sliced on the mandoline in to french fries, getting a soak before a few minutes in boiling water (just enough to make them limp). Once boiled spread out on a tea towel to dry out.
Heat a roasting pan with about 1/4 of a cup of oil in a hot oven (200ºC ). Tip the dried out fries on to the tray and cook until golden brown, stirring them occasionally.
You could do this low and slow in the oven, but I have a pressure cooker. Brown the meat on all sides and then chuck in a bit of chilli, fennel seed, 1/4 cup of cider vinegar, sliced onion, salt and pepper. Cook on high pressure for about 50 minutes.
Let the meat rest in its liquid until it's cool enough to handle.
Pull the pork with your fingers and put it back in to the pot with about 1/2 a cup of the cooking liquid and some BBQ sauce (homemade is best, but good store bought is fine). Cook for a couple minutes more, and then serve in some toasted rolls.
