Recipe: Pulled pork sandwich

You all know I heart pork! Any kind of pork dish really. I have wanted to make pulled pork for a while now and finally, made it! Pulled pork ‘is a form of barbecue in a which pork or mixed cut is cooked using a low-heat, long-cook method’. The slower the better, the more tender the meat becomes, so it is easier to ‘pull’ or easily broken into individual pieces.


  • 700g pork shoulder
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup ground paprika
  • 1/4 ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder


  • put spices in a bowl and mix well
  • rub ingredients to pork and leave over night
  • unfortunately I don’t have a bbq or smoker so it was in the oven.
  • set oven to 200C and place pork fat side down in oven for 1 – 1.5 hours
  • turn down oven to 120C and roast for an additional 4 hours
  • the meat should be slowly separating from the point
  • flip shoulder to the fat side and roast for an additional 1.5 hours
  • allow to rest for about 20 – 30 mins until cooled
  • then take 2 forks and tear and pull pork into strands
  • serve immediately

Can store the remainder of the pulled pork in an airtight plastic containers

I served my pulled pork with slaw and pomegranate and a bit of mayonnaise.
easy slaw and pomegranate salad

  • 1/2 medium head cabbage shredded
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of pomegranate

mix well and serve with pulled pork sandwich

    And you know one of the best parts of this apart from eating it? Being able to shove it in the oven and not worry about it for hours!

    You must love pork like crazy if you have the patience to change the oven settings that many times, lol. Looks great though 🙂
