Pulled Pork the Provencal Way

Pulled Pork Sandwiches were something I never had until we moved from the south of France to Venice Florida. Seems that pulled pork is something of a southern barbeque delicacy and every area claims theirs is the absolute best. I even have a friend from the Midwest who is adamant that pulled pork sandwiches are a specialty of Oklahoma! The thread that ties all the areas together is barbeque sauce. Rich, sweet, tangy and intense barbeque surrounds every morsel of the roasted pork. I’ll probably insult some friends with what I’m about to say but…..I find the barbeque flavoring all a bit overwhelming. The meat is moist and tender for sure but all you taste are the barbeque spices.
So I thought I’d try roasting a pork butt using the same herbs I often rely on when roasting a pork tenderloin.

From the original site: Pulled Pork the Provencal Way is certainly different than your traditional southern pulled pork for sure, but well worth a try. My family really enjoyed this twist on Pulled Pork Sandwiches and voted to have it added to our weekend menus.

I am a passionate home cook with more years experience than I care to admit. From the time I was a child making up pancake recipes with nothing more than flour and water, my favorite times, other than being with my husband and kids, are always in the kitchen. I’ve live many places; from Tacoma, Washington to Malibu, California, on to the south of France for 11 years and now Nokomis Florida. Each place offered its own kind of food and local specialties and I made it my business to become intimate with them all! While living in the south of France, we were only 45 minutes from Italy. Grocery shopping excursions to San Remo, Italy were a monthly occurrence. Not all that long ago, the southern part of France was actually part of what is now Italy so the regional cuisine has influences from both cultures. What a treat it was to explore all the traditional dishes from both countries! My goal is to share my passion for cooking with seasonal fresh ingredients; to explore with you all of nature’s bounty and travel together on a path of sharing great food at your family table!
