Recipe By my son, Anthony Apogremiotis Serving Suggestions Remove crackle and cut into smaller pieces. Or (just get a knife and shred the whole lot) the whole lot will just fall apart and then you have crackle with every bite. With Two forks shred pork for bread rolls (shreds very easy) or (crackle and pork all mixed together) Coleslaw for rolls Apple sauce Serve on platter or board As Photo
