We’re going to be sharing two of our favourite recipes from Finger Food from the BBQ and Grill this June….so fire up your BBQ and get ready! Today, it’s Pulled Pork in a Filo Pastry Egg.
PULLED PORK IN A FILO PASTRY EGG
Makes 8 Cooking time: 45 minutes (not including the pulled pork) Difficulty: **/***
50 g soft unsalted butter
8 empty egg shells (carefully cut the top off 8 eggs, empty out and clean them; or use a readymade product)
8 sheets filo pastry
250 g pulled pork (see Tip below), seasoned and finely shredded
8 small radishes (or balls scooped out of radishes)
1. Melt the butter and coat the inside of the eggshells with it. Fold the pastry sheets into squares a quarter of their original size and carefully line the eggshells with them. Fill with a little pulled pork. 2. Place a radish (or radish ball) inside each egg and fill completely with the pulled pork. Carefully press down a little on the filling.
3. Beat the egg. Brush beaten egg over the overhanging pastry, cover the filling with it, and lightly press down until it sticks. Cut off the excess pastry with scissors.
4. Use a good amount of aluminium foil to make rings to enclose the eggs securely, then place them on the barbecue. Position the eggs inside the rings and cook indirectly for 10 minutes at 200°C. Take the eggs out of the barbecue and leave to cool for 15 minutes, after which they can be peeled.
Pulled pork, slow-cooked until tender, is a classic barbecued dish and is becoming increasingly popular at street food festivals and at barbecue parties.
Many ambitious barbecuers always keep a few portions of their home-made pulled pork in the freezer
