Pulled pork and coleslaw
First day of summer in Iceland was last Thursday, it´s a national holiday. People dress warm and go out for a stroll in a parade with a big band and scouts holding the Icelandic flag.
- A piece of pork shoulder
Put the shoulder in a pot and fill it with water so the water goes over the pork. Put in an oven for 6-8 hours at 150°c.
We were at a summerhouse and didn´t have a steak pot but thankfully we found a big pot that fit the oven and the pork.
When the pork is ready you need a good bbq sause to go marinade it with. I made a pot of sauce and threw the pork in after tearing it a part from the bone, that was easy after all the cooking in the oven.
Use your nicest bbq recipe. It might be something like this.
- Brown sugar
- Sherry vinegar
- Can chopped tomatoes or can of tomato sauce
Chop, melt butter, fry veggies, mix everything together, boil…
Coleslaw is a must with pulled pork. It freshens it up a bit. I did a homemade coleslaw and it was very good.
- Cabbage, schredded
- Carrots, shredded
- Creme fraishe
- Apples, scredded
- Lemon juice (fresh)
I served it with melted mozzarella and fresh spinach as well. Use the best sandwich bread you can find. I used Ciabatta. Even a homemade naan might be really good. If you got no good bread a Mexican tortilla or a Roti might work. (Homemade of course!)
While the pork was boiling we went for a drive around the country side and to see hot springs. The weather was a bit cold so the hot water made lots of steam.
The bubblee hot spring…very hot
