The one drawback with pulled pork is that it takes a long time to get to that tender, melt in your mouth texture. Plus, if you’re using a slow cooker or pressure cooker you still have to figure out what sides to make. This recipe uses a little of the spice mix from the pork rub to season black beans, and while you’re waiting for Suvie to finish cooking we whip up a super simple coleslaw. If you’d like to add a starch to this meal you can always add some rice to the starch pan and make a little extra of the spice rub to season it with.

5) After the cook, remove the pork and beans from Suvie.
6) Drain the liquid from the pork into a bowl and set aside. Pull apart the pork with two forks until it’s well shredded, then add ¼ – ½ cup of the pork liquid back to the shredded pork.

Pork works when paired with both red and white wines so try pairing this dish with a good quality bottle of Saignée Rosé.
