Notes

Tips/Tricks

  • the longer you leave the pork to marinate the more it will take on the flavour and tenderize the pork but
  • pork butt is usually cooked low n slow so make sure you slice them thinly to cook hot and fast
  • allow the pork to rest for 2 minutes before slicing – use this time to lay out the rest of the ingredients to serve family-style
  • if you can’t get pork butt then you could use loin or even tenderloin but as these cuts are more tender marinade for only 1-2 hours
