Pulled Pork Recipe, Hints & Videos
Pulled pork is a form of cooking pork that allows it to become so tender the meat can be easily "pulled" apart. Although technically pulled pork should be smoked like barbeque, it can also be made in a slow cooker or an oven. Once the meat has been cooked and shredded it is then covered in a tomato based barbeque sauce or a vinegar sauce.
A uniquely American meal, pulled pork is commonly eaten on a bun with sides such as potato salad, baked beans or coleslaw. Pulled pork is also a great way to use a leftover pork roast. All you have to do is cook a pork roast that is twice the size you plan to eat and then shred the rest. The pulled pork can then be combined with your own or a store-bought barbeque sauce and eaten in a few days or frozen for future use.
Pulled Pork Recipe
Pulled Pork BBQ
Add the secret ingredient of ginger ale to your pork and you are in for a wonderful tasting sandwich.
1 qt. (about 1 liter) of ginger ale
1 pkg. hamburger buns
2 lb. pork chops or shoulder roast
BBQ sauce to taste
If you use a roast, cut it in large chunks just to make it cook faster. In a soup pot or crockpot, put in pork and about half of the ginger ale. For the soup pot, bring to a boil then reduce to medium heat. For the crockpot, just set to medium heat. Cook at medium for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until the meat starts to pull away from the bone, adding more ginger ale as needed. Remove meat and pull the pork off the bone. Discard ginger ale. Put the meat on buns and top with the barbeque sauce.
