I always say that it feeds 4 if you are greedy or 5 if you want leftovers. I also have 2 fussy little ones and some days they don’t want to eat. Or it depends on what sides you’re eating it with. We served our Asian pulled pork with roast potatoes.
I have kept this Asian pulled pork marinade mild because I am feeding 2 under 5’s. But you’re welcome to increase the chilli powder if you prefer or add in some cayenne pepper.
You can use a small, medium or large pork shoulder. Our pork shoulders typically weigh between 1.5 and 2 kilos which is between 3.3 and 4.4 pounds.
