Get your Dutch ovens ready, ‘cause we’re about to introduce a new recipe for PULLED PORK that will surely excite your taste buds! We’ll also be giving you a couple ideas for how to serve this delicious dish! Stay tuned!

What is Pulled Pork?

Pulled pork is an American barbecue dish made of pork that’s been seasoned with several kinds of spices and cooked low and slow. This cooking method makes it so that the meat becomes soft and tender, excess fat melts away and you’re left with some delicious meat that isn’t too greasy. The pork is then shredded or “pulled” apart and doused in a beautiful barbeque sauce medley. Yummm.

This dish usually makes appearances at barbecues and parties around American states like North Carolina or Texas. Most commonly paired with burger buns, veggies or bacon and eaten as a hamburger or with hotdog buns/ bread as a sandwich. There’s also no shame in eating it as is. Once you get a bite of this, you’ll know what’s up.

BBQ PULLED PORK RECIPE (can be made on a stovetop or a grill)


Traditionally, pulled pork is prepared by slow-cooking and smoking over wood. In this article, we’ll be introducing a recipe for pulled pork using a Dutch oven that you can easily recreate at home or on your next barbecue!

This is so easy to make! Just put the ingredients in the pot, simmer, and you’re already halfway there!

  • 1 kg pork shoulder roast block
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced (approx. 3mm half-moon pcs)
  • 1 stick celery, chopped (approx. 5mm pcs)
  • 80 ml water
  • ●1 tbsp. sugar
  • ●1 tbsp. paprika powder
  • ●1 tsp. salt
  • ●1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • ●1 tsp. cumin (add more as you like)
  • about 3-5 tbsp. BBQ Sauce about (add more as you like)


  1. 1. In a resealable plastic bag, pour in the sugar, paprika, salt, pepper, cumin and shake until well combined.
  2. 2. Cut the pork shoulder block into 4 pieces and place in the plastic bag. Shake until the meat is coated with the seasonings. Leave in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours.
  3. 3. Almost there! Take the meat out of the fridge and set aside. Place the onions, carrots, celery in the Dutch oven. On top of the vegetables, place the spiced meat.
  4. 4. Pour the water in there then cover. Turn the heat on to medium. Let it heat up for 5 minutes, then reduce to low heat. Let it simmer in low heat for 2 hours.
  5. 5. When the meat can be easily shredded with a fork, remove from the heat, add the BBQ sauce in there and start shredding it up with 2 forks. (The veggies can be removed or mixed in. Your choice.)

We know some people don’t want to wait to sink their teeth into this dish, but cooking it for a long time will allow the meat to soften and lock in the umami flavors. Trust us, it’ll be well worth the wait.
