How Long Does BBQ Pulled Pork Last?

Since you are making this sauce from scratch, it doesn’t have preservatives. This BBQ Pulled Pork recipe will last for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Make sure it is in an airtight container. You can also freeze it.

How to Reheat BBQ Pulled Pork?

Pulled pork can be reheated in the microwave, in a pot on the stove or in a baking dish in the oven. Make sure the pork has been reheated thoroughly when you are ready to reheat it. If we are eating all of the pulled pork leftovers, I will heat them in the oven or on the stovetop. If I am only heating enough for one, I will heat it in the microwave or on the stove.

Ingredients

  1. 3lb-4lb pork shoulder (trimmed well of all fat)

For the sauce

  1. 5 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  2. 1 tsp mustard powder
  3. 500g passata
  4. 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  5. 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  6. 3 tbsp sweetener like Splenda
  7. 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper

Method

  1. Measure all the sauce ingredients and place in a small saucepan and whisk together, bring to a boil then simmer while whisking for about 15 minutes until thicker
    • You can forgo this step and place it directly in the slow cooker alongside the pork joint, however, you gain a thick sauce by making it separately first.
  2. Taste for seasoning might need a little more salt or pepper
  3. Place pork into a slow cooker and pour over the sauce and cook on low for 6-8 hours
  4. After this time remove the lid from the slow cooker and turn it up to high for an hour to help to reduce the sauce
  5. Remove the joint from the slow cooker and use two forks to pull the meat apart into shreds
  6. Place meat either back into the slow cooker pot or a serving dish and mix well into the sauce

Notes

  1. Serve with fresh salad and crispy rolls
