Spiced Pulled Pork with Red Cabbage and Apple Slaw

There are recipes that may take a while to cook but only take a few minutes to prepare and this Easy Spiced Pulled Pork is that recipe. Combine the spices, rub it onto the pork and then bake it. That’s it. If you are at home while this is slowly roasting, be prepared for a hit of that juicy aroma that will linger through the house. It may tempt you to open the oven door, have a peek and maybe even grab a fork to pull off a piece but I beg you to leave it alone and be patient. Once cooked and out of the oven, you will enjoy every mouthful. Trust me.


Spiced Pulled Pork with Red Cabbage and Apple Slaw

This is how it all began. I came across an organic butcher at my local farmers market a few weeks ago and decided for the first time to buy a large piece of pork neck. Unsure what I was going to do with it, the lady suggested pulled pork. I did not own a slow cooker so the oven was the next best way to prepare this. At home, I brought together an array of spices that I loved and hoped for the best.


The result? My family loved it. My son said to me if he could marry food, this would be the meal of his dream! LOL

When you look at the recipe, you may think this is a lot of meat to cook, I suggest you don’t worry about that as any leftovers can be turned into Pulled Pork and Slaw burgers the next day. Nothing better than cooking and the leftovers can be created into a whole new meal the following day.
