23 November 2020 Pulled pork recipe

Made pulled pork a couple of times. Freestyled a bit. No expert here, but result was yummie.

Grind/blend spices

  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons whole pepper corn mix
  • 2 teaspoons chilly flakes

If spices are whole, grind or blend them. Set aside.

Optionally: Substitute 1 teaspoon of paprika with chipotle pepper.



Mix into a paste

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard

Mix the honey, mustard, and previous spices into a paste.

Rub the mix in

Rub mix thoroughly into the pork shoulder.

Bake (1 hour)

Place in a pot (lid off) and bake in the oven for 1 hour at 200 °C.

Add liquids

  • 1/2 cup of water.
  • 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.

Add liquids to pot.


Bake (3-5 hours)

Bake between 3 to 5 hours 150 °C. Check every hour or two. Does the meat fall easily when spread with two forks? If so, you're done.


Pull apart

Use two forks to pull the meat apart.
