Pulled Pork Recipe

Fred Alam


Pulled pork is so easy to prepare with a pressure cooker. A slow cooker works well too.

For this recipe I like to use a pork butt roast, they are meaty and do have some fat.

Other cuts of pork that this would do well with would be a bone in pork roast, a shoulder roast, or a hind cut. I like to use cuts that have some fat and marbling. I do not think a pork loin would make a good cut of pork for pulled or shredded pork.
