Pulled pork is simply American BBQ at its best, so here the recipe! Pulled pork should be so tender that it practically comes apart before you start to shred it. It’s flavourful, soft and moist. The best cut to use is the shoulder, a tough cut of meat which becomes tender.
Traditionally it is a barbecue recipe meaning it’s cooked on a grill for hours! However, those without access to a grill rejoice because thankfully pulled pork is easy to make at home in your slow cooker, pressure cooker or even in your oven! Pulled pork demands love and time but I think we can all agree its worth it!
An amazing thing about pulled pork is its versatility. Adding it to burgers with coleslaw is a combination to die for. Fresh coleslaw perfectly compliments the pork and adds freshness and a much needed crunch.
It is an amazing filling for sandwiches, tacos, wraps and quesadillas. It’s a common addition to nachos and it can even be used as a pizza topping!
We knew getting the spice balance right is really important to so in our recipe. Our rub is made up of salt, sugar, pepper, onion, chilli powder, cinnamon and mustard powder.
We added some maple syrup or honey (if you register for The Cooking Hacks you can change the ingredient!), soy sauce, harissa and tomato puree as well, but also beer or water. These wet ingredients prevent the pork from becoming dry while cooking and become a wonderful sauce once the pork has finished cooking.
