Hi Everyone

Yesterday I tried out a recipe for Pulled Pork. I recorded it over on snapchat. It was a great success and I’ve had loads of requests for the recipe. I bought a small packet of pork pieces in Aldi to try this recipe.You can easily adapt it for a larger piece of Pork but the cooking time will be longer. I served this with baked potato and salad but it would be lovely with rice or chips or in a whole meal roll either. I used a gas oven but you could easily use a slow cooker either. Anyway here’s what You need. 



Lean pork, I used the Aldi pack it’s 320g next time I’d buy 2/3 packs and make a bigger batch.

1/2 carton of passata

1 golden delicious apple

3 tablespoons of smoked paprika

3 tablespoons of woster sauce

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons of soy sauce 

1 onion 

2 cloves of garlic

1/2 red pepper

1 onion 

A few mushrooms 

Salt & pepper


Take a roasting tin (you need a lid) and just cover the base with a splash of boiling water. This will prevent the mix from sticking. Add in the pork and season well with salt pepper, paprika, woster sauce, soy sauce and balsamic vinegar. 

In your nutri billet or blender, blend the peeled Apple, onion, 2 cloves of garlic and passatta.

Add to the meat. 

Add in the chopped pepper and mushrooms. 

Place is the oven at a low heat I used gas mark 3

Check after 2 hours and stir, to make sure it’s not burning or sticking. 

Place back in the oven for another hour. 
Check again in an hour. Stir the mix again. The meat should be starting to fall apart at this stage. This gives a lovely texture, hence the name “pulled pork” As I said the portion of meat I used was only 320g if You are using more meat it will take longer.
