How to Prepare Pulled Pork

If you have ever enjoyed pulled pork by itself or on a sandwich, you have probably wondered how you can prepare it at home. Many people do not know just how easy pulled pork recipes can be, but there are several different cooking methods that you can try to prepare delicious pulled pork at home.

First of all, you should consider looking for pulled pork recipes that utilize the slow cooker. Many people do not have or use slow cookers, but these individuals are often missing out on tasty, tender meals that are incredibly easy to prepare. To make pulled pork in your slow cooker, simply place your pork roast in your slow cooker with your choice of juices. For instance, you can use a barbecue sauce if you want your pulled pork to have a barbecue-type flavor, or you can use a tangy blend of vinegar and spices to give your pork a bit of spicy flavor. You can even use a can of pepperoncini peppers or banana peppers with their juice in order to spice up your pulled pork, or you can try a simple broth with lots of seasoning if you want your pulled pork to be a little less spicy and a little more mild. Prior to preparing your pork, make sure to cut off most of the fat; you can leave a little if you want to give your meat some flavor, however. Then, turn your slow cooker on and allow your pork to cook for eight to ten hours. After it is done cooking, it should easily shred with two forks, and you will have a delightfully easy and incredibly tasty pulled pork dish that will be great alone or on sandwiches.

If you don’t want to use a slow cooker to prepare your pulled pork, you can follow a similar recipe in the oven. For best results, turn your oven on a relatively low temperature and cook it for several hours until your meat is very tender and can be easily shredded with two forks.

You might be wondering how to serve your pulled pork once it is prepared. If you want to serve it on sandwiches, consider offering coleslaw and hot sauce for those who want it. You can also serve it alone alongside baked beans, hushpuppies, vegetables, or another favorite side dish for a quick, easy, and incredibly delicious complete meal.
