I always like to make things that both looks good for a photoshoot and make a nice meal, and this photoshoot was no exception. I made pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw, and the process was surprisingly simple.

I began with a bone-in pork shoulder, as most prefer to use boneless, but I find that the pork tastes better with the bone. I cooked it in a multi-pressure Fagor pressure cooker, using it as a crockpot, which would also work just fine for the recipe. After cooking for 10 hours, the pork will stay fresh for another 10 hours, which I used to my advantage. After letting the pork cook overnight, it was ready for the shoot.

The coleslaw was also a part of this shoot, and I chose to buy shredded lettuce and make my own sauce. Despite coming from a bag, the lettuce looks good and tastes good with the sauce, and compliments the pulled pork perfectly, both in the meal and on camera. I also used store-bought brioche bread, for it looks much better and better completes the meal. I used our family’s favorite BBQ sauce, as making my own barbeque sauce would be another project within itself, so it’s really a matter of convenience.

While preparing this meal, I found that wearing latex gloves while cooking and preparing food was quite effective. It not only keeps the food clean, it also protects one’s hands from dryness when being near heat. After the gloves came off and the food was ready, this shoot proved to be simple, quick, and a great meal for my family.
