Pulled pork is a favorite in many dinners across America and consists of a slow cooked pork shoulder or butt roast with the tender cooked meat pulled apart in shreds. Both pork shoulder or butt roasts are usually very cheap cuts of meat and are a great way to enjoy delicious meat when on a budget.
The pork cut used to prepare pulled pork is often marinated and cooked with a flavorful combination of spices and flavorings. Of course, many pulled pork recipes will call for unhealthy combinations of flavors like sodas, brown sugar or sugary sauces, but homemade pulled pork can easily be prepared with delicious and healthy spices.
It can be prepared in the oven, on the barbecue, in a crock-pot or in a smoker. In the following recipe, the pork roast in cooked in the oven for about 6 hours, until the meat is so tender that is almost melts in your mouth.
Probably the most popular and unhealthy way to enjoy pulled pork is between two buns in a pulled pork sandwich, but I it can be enjoyed on it’s own or with many different sides with great success. It’s especially great when served with a coleslaw, braised or creamed green leafy vegetables, a simple salad or a tart cranberry sauce.
