Pulled Pork Brioche Buns with Miso Coleslaw

B has been on a mission to make pulled pork for quite a while now. He finally bought a huge hunk of pork and set about it himself, leaving me with whatever I wanted to make to go with it. That was of course brioche buns, bbq sauce and coleslaw. 

Mini buns, very well pulled pork, miso coleslaw and classic bbq sauce came together to create many little balls of scrumptiousness. A muddle of recipes from around and about, and a little bit of improvisation, which all ended up sitting together rather beautifully. Even if it was a rather long weekend project. 

For the pulled pork and BBQ sauce we used this Sorted recipe.
I'm not going to tell you where the brioche bun recipe was from as they weren't the best, and I'm sure you can find better. I'll let you know when I make some which I'd recommend to you, some which don't involve emergency changes and lots of stress.
For the miso coleslaw, we based the recipe vaguely on this Honestly Healthy one. It just involves chopping up a random mix of crunchy veg and tossing it in a dressing of white miso, tahini, lime juice, olive oil and a few chilli flakes, adjusting amounts and quantities as we went. I got a little bit addicted to this!

Happy Sunday! I hope this provides you with a bit of cooking inspiration for the week ahead!


  1. Inspiration indeed! i am a big fan of pulled pork, and now autumn is rolling in I can't wait to spend a weekend doing one again. Love the idea of a miso coleslaw as well, sounds like a very tasty twist on the usual.

    1. Yay I'm so glad! Miso coleslaw is really great - it's really refreshing to move away from the normal mayo drenched option!
