Pulled Pork for Two
Given the time it takes (and food it makes), pulled pork calls for a crowd. Could we bring it indoors for a party of two?
Why This Recipe Works
For our Pulled Pork for Two recipe, we found a rich, fatty, hulking pork butt—the traditional choice for pulled pork—took half a day to cook and was too much meat for two. We used bone-in blade chops that cooked in a more reasonable amount of time and comfortably fed two diners. Braising the meat in barbecue sauce tenderized the blade chops and added strong flavor. A spice rub of chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and dark brown sugar added some kick, while a few slices of bacon provided a nice smoky flavor.
