Do you like watching cookery shows? Well, if you are here reading this post, then it’s kinda given that you like watching cookery shows, so that was kinda dumb question. Ok, I’ll ask you another question.. do you have a favourite cookery show or you just watch whatever is running?
I generally put on the lifestyle channel and if I find something interesting, I’ll watch. I do not have a fav cookery show as such, but I’ve a soft corner towards “Eat Street” show. It’s mostly about street food in different parts of the world. It’s not about fancy presentation or techniques, it’s about simple but flavourful food. I really like how they combine different flavours and most of the time it’s easy to put together also. Since they mostly show street food in and around US, some of the ingredients and flavours are not familiar to me.
However one dish that was repeatedly shown in different episodes was Pulled Pork Sandwiches. It’s pork being slow cooked in a flavour filled marinade and then shredded and mixed with some sauces and salad. Though I dont eat Pork, every time I see how that sandwich is made, I end up craving one. That’s how I ended up with this recipe. I’ve seen pulled beef sandwiches also, but I since I dont have the patience for slow cooking beef, I decided to go with chicken.
Honestly, I’m not a chicken fan, I eat chicken very rarely, only if I cant resist the taste. Also I do like dishes where the meat or fish is well coated with some kind of sauce, making the meat more flavourful. This sandwich does exactly that. I really enjoyed making as well as eating this. You can make this as a main dish or as a starter. It’s really good for a weeknight dinner, if you are pressed for time. You can make the filling in advance and refrigerate for 3-4 days. Putting together the sandwich hardly takes any time. Sounds like a winner, right?
So here you go..
