Lauren's Pulled Pork

Lauren Perkins-Boyd


This is a total budget friendly meal and it tastes fabulous. I add fennel seed to my spice rub because it goes with pork so well, but if you don't like fennel seed you can certainly leave it out.

  • 5Serve as is or make pulled pork sandwiches by placing meat on a bun and top with coleslaw or as barbecue pizza; get some store bought or homemade pizza dough, use barbecue sauce as pizza sauce, sprikle with meat and cheese and bake as directed on the pizza dough package or make pulled pork quesadillas (they're a huge hit with kids) just place pork and cheese between 2 tortillas and grill until the cheese is melted.
