‘Orishirishi’ Recipe - Pulled Pork, Cole’s Law and Bread rolls

This recipe will get a Yoruba man saying ‘orishirishi!’!

Pulled beef, coleslaw and bread

Growing up, when I walked into restaurants (the very few times I did)I would always think those with assorted mixtures on their plates were ermm…in a certain class. And my definition of ‘assorted’ would be anything I had not seen before (even if it was water)...now I know better and I can dish out recipes for one of such ‘assorted’ mixtures! Forget the ‘orishirishi’, it’s actually Pulled Pork, Cole’s Law and Bread rolls.
