It can be hard to find the time to eat together as a family but there are plenty of reasons why it’s great to gather around the table as often as possible. Your kids will tend to eat a wider variety of foods and have better table manners for starters!
Here Ben and Jude whip up a family favourite – pulled pork on homemade sliders, with kid-friendly coleslaw.
1 ½ C plain flour
1 ½ C bakers/strong four
Flour for rolling
Dissolve yeast in water to activate
In the mixer add both flours, eggs, yeast mixture, milk and salt and mix with a dough hook until smooth, approximately 10 minutes
Leave to prove in a bowl covered for at least 1 hour in a warm place.
Knock back the dough by giving it a light knead and then cut into rough potions
Roll into buns and place on a greased lined tray.
Sprinkle with a little extra water and cover to prove in a warm place for 20 mins
Once they have proved, brush the buns with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds
Bake at 220°C 10-15 mins
1 pork belly
Sprinkle the pork belly with salt and leave in the fridge to cure for 6 hours.
Once it is cured, rinse off any excess salt and slow roast for 6hours at 120°C
