Oven-Braised Pulled Pork is such a simple and versatile recipe.
What is for breakfast? How about Pork and Radish Hash?
What’s for lunch? How about Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps?
Whats for dinner? Pulled Pork with Cauli-Mash?
Are you catching my drift here? There are a lot of meal possibilities with this Oven-braised Pulled Pork.
I love making pulled pork because it’s cheap and lasts a long time, which means less cooking for me.
Not to mention, it’s super easy to make!
All you do is combine a few ingredients, add the pork and cook it in the oven and slow cooker. Get on with your day, and by dinner time it will be ready with leftovers for the whole week!
However you decide to season and flavor your pulled pork is up to you, for this recipe I added a secret ingredient that made it yummy. Dr. Zevia soda; it tasted like Dr. Pepper but sweetened with Stevia. It adds a great flavor to the pork.
You don’t have to add it, but if you can get your hands on some Dr. Zevia, you should. I used one can for this recipe. It’s a clear soda so it won’t darken the pork as regular Dr. Pepper would.
Speaking of Dr. Pepper, fun fact; I was OBSESSED with it when I was younger. Dr. Pepper and Cooler Ranch Doritos was the perfect match for me. I needed nothing else in my life when those two were around. To be young again.
Nowadays, I will occasionally drink a Dr. Zevia and have some Quest Ranch Protein chips and pretend like it’s the same thing. It’s nowhere near as good, but we can pretend.
You can also make this recipe in the Slow Cooker, or the Instant Pot, I’m sure. I don’t have an Instant Pot (yet), but I’m sure it would be so much faster than this recipe.
However you make it, you will love the flavors and all of the things you can make with this pork. Comment below for your pulled pork ideas!Print
