Pulled Pork

June/July 2005

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (54 votes)

The trick to making pulled pork healthy is to trim the meat well and then skim any extra fat off the sauce after cooking. Serve on a soft whole-grain bun with crisp, cool coleslaw.

Great Recipe!

I've made this recipe twice now and will make it again! Pulled pork is a family favorite and you know with EatingWell that you aren't getting a calorie bomb. The homemade BBQ sauce is great!

I could never find "Boston Butt" pork, so I went with a shoulder roast or one time a "picnic", but that was super fatty so I would stick with the shoulder.

Also I could not find whole grain mustard and went with stone ground instead, because the pieces in it looked the biggest.

This is a great recipe if you leave out the vinegar!!!! I read the reviews and tasted the sauce before adding
any vinegar and it tasted great. I thought maybe the vinegar would add another element of dimension, so
I went ahead and added 1 tblsp. Didn't taste very good after that, so I let the sauce cook down and it turned out ok. The pork was fabulous except there not enough sauce to put over the meat, probably because I cooked it down so much. Still good anyway. Meat was very tender.

Sorry, didn't mention that I only used 1Tblsp of cider vineger. It was just too strong. No way could there be that much vinegar in a recipe. Even when you make dressing with oil and vinegar you don't use that
much vinegar!! Anyways, I only used 1 tblsp and it turned out great. Also added 1 tsp salt, hey, there's
meat, onions, vegetables, there has to be some salt!

Was very pleased with the results of this recipe. The smell mermeated the house beautifully.
The roast fell apart after six hours in the oven (only had a 3 lb) and the sauce absorbed all the liquid. Not only was it great with rice but also will be great with tomorrows dinner with tacos!

Wouldn't change anything.. This is a keeper...
