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.


Ingredients:

  • 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

Method:

  • 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.
