For months and months I want to share with you this recipe for pulled pork in the oven. Not only for you to enjoy it but also because it is one of my flagship recipes, that is to say that I cook it often and I need it available on my foodblog :). I don’t want to look for the recipe in my cookbook notes because sometimes I get lost. Too much notes and unfinished recipe. And yes, working in digital… my phone is my third main, or even my first one so it is never very far from me.
Perfect in a burger
I love burgers. No, but to be honest, I’m a very big fan. My parents are divorced so to make it short because you all know the song. With my dad, when he was not cooking good dishes for me well we went to mc donald ! So the burgers and well, for me it’s a bit like a childhood memory and above all my shot of love.
However, no way that I am cooking beef burgers at home. I don’t like being stressed in the kitchen at all. That is to say that when I have guests, I don’t like making last minute meals, because ultimately you never know what is going to happen. For burgers especially, because everyone has their favorite cooking and to be honest, I like to eat hot and at the table even if it is me who cooks then out of the question that I make fifteen thousand round trip.
With the pulled pork burger, it’s very simple, you just have to reheat everything, the pork covered, the breads with a delicious slice of cheddar then hop, we serve all of a sudden.
Anyway, to say that when I met with the pulled pork burger, I fell madly in love. All the criteria were met. In addition, I am still 50% Breton despite the fact that I grew up in the south of France and that I live in Switzerland :). So pork, I know!
But hey what I do with it, you will understand, they are burgers :). In general, I prepare a lot more pulled pork than I need. A large pork roast, the largest I can find and then I freeze it by portion once it has been shredded to take it out of the freezer as soon as we want a burger.
Then I shape it into a burger, I always make homemade hamburger buns (which I also freeze).
A little long cooking time, but very simple to make
Then the pulled pork is easy to do. A very long but simple cooking time and that’s what’s good! You will need a lot of cooking hours and a slow cooker. 7 in all! It will take you a whole day to propel yourself into paradise.
First, you need a good piece of meat, pork shoulder, or rather neck for a successful pulled pork or pulled pork. A mixture of spices for a marinade that will look exactly like a barbecue sauce and then slow cooking at low temperature. The only imperative, watch that there is always enough liquid and that the roast is bathed in the juice. There must be enough throughout the cooking.
It depends on you and your desires. You can serve it with pan-fried potatoes or fries, especially if you serve it as a burger. But the best is still to make a homemade coleslaw, it’s so good. Either fill your burger with it, or serve it next to it.
And if not, well a good salad in summer? Any idea is welcome, please feel free to share it with me.

I usually go to a restaurant to taste things that I don’t know or don’t want to do at home. And over the years, there are less and less things that I love but that I do not know how to do. In general, I eat either in very good restaurants, or burgers! But now with this pulled pork, and well the good burgers, I also make them at home… So it becomes more and more difficult for my husband to invite me, especially that to my dismay it is not very fan of chic bistros while I love it.
I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we enjoy it at home. During the confinement, we made this recipe several times and everyone was delighted, end especially me :).
