- Why has 'pulled Pork' appeared everywhere?
I believe it’s also compulsory to eat it in a ‘pop-up’ restaurant. Another benchmark of Nathan Barley-esque ****ishness.
I reckon that if you call your organic bakery, tofu palace or hemp clothing shop a ‘pop up…..’ Then you immediately forfeit your right not to have it burnt down, with you in it!Posted 4 years agojoolsburgerMember
It’s cheap and people will pay 12 quid for a burger in a brioche bun with some of this on it and a very small potion of chips in a little zinc bucket all served on a plank – To a plank. I hate living in London sometimes. 8 quid for a take away pulled pork burrito at Waterloo station it’s madness I tells yer. Don’t get me started on the belly of pork at the Oxo tower, one small pice of the cheapest bit of pork you can buy served with pretty much f all, 21 quid, the view’s nice I suppose.Posted 4 years ago

Unlikely, it requires cooking and they don’t have fire yet.
Oh we do. Unlike the south which is too damp for fire.
That’s a bit nasty Drac 😉
Though as a Midland born educated in the SW but living in the North with Parents from Yorkshire & London of Scottish & Dutch extraction its very confusing to know where I’m from!Posted 4 years agoMikeypiesMember
it is a cheap cut so keeps up the profits
I have tried it a few times including a top BBQ stall and it has been bland and covered in sauce in a cheapo bread bun basically rubbish
If you cook it yourself on the BBQ it is great and the leftovers fantastic in stir frys etc
Its the same as OX tail which used to be cheap as chips but now isnt 🙁Posted 4 years agohatterSubscriber
As someone married to a lady from south of the mason/Dixie i’ve been a fan of pulled pork for many a year, I wouldn’t call it new fangled trendy crap around her if I were you.
Not that all southern cuisine is equally pleasant, if you’re ever offered ‘grits’ down there politely refuse, it’s truly grim.Posted 4 years agoeskayMember
Belly pork has gone through a similar renaissance.
It was always a cheap cut of meat until hora’s ‘faux-franz ferdinand lookalike in a cardigan beard/bobble hatted twit/bbc employee fashion cafe/semi old fashion-twist pub bollockory’ got hold of it.
You are now expected to pay £15 for a bit of it in a restaurant.Posted 4 years ago
