Tyler’s Oven-Roasted Pulled Pork

Oven Roasted Pulled Pork

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean that you can’t have delicious pulled pork – and you don’t even have to dig your grill out of the snow and ice outside. This Tyler Florence recipe lets you slow roast it in your oven and then enjoy. I dare say it’s even easier than throwing it onto the grill. And while I typically only make this cut of meat so I can enjoy pulled pork sandwiches, this is great on its own as a roast too. Still pull it apart, and watch your family dive in!

1 5-7 pound shoulder or butt pork roast $8.52

For the dry rub:

3 tablespoons paprika $1.44
1 tablespoon garlic powder $0.39
1 brown sugar 0.01
1 tablespoon dry mustard $0.09
3 tablespoons coarse salt $0.03

For the sauce:

1 1/2 cups cider vinegar $0.55
1 cup yellow or brown mustard $1.34
1/2 cup ketchup $0.38
1/3 cup brown sugar $0.07
2 cloves garlic, smashed $0.02
1 teaspoon salt $0.01
1 teaspoon cayenne $0.23
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper $0.01

Total Cost $13.09

1.) In a small bowl combine the paprika, garlic powder, brown sugar, dry mustard, and salt. Sprinkle this mixture liberally over the pork, and rub it in to allow it to absorb those flavours. Place in fridge for at least an hour, but as long as overnight, covered, to allow the pork to marinate.

2.) Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

3.) Place the roast in a large casserole dish or a large roasting pan and place in oven. Allow it to roast for about 6 hours, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 170 degrees Fahrenheit, and the pork is falling apart.

4.) Near the end of roasting time, make the barbecue sauce. In a medium-sized saucepan combine the vinegar, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, salt, cayenne, and black pepper. Bring to a simmer and allow the sauce to stay bubbling for 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves.

5.) When pork is removed from the oven, allow it to rest for at least ten minutes, covered with aluminium foil. When ready, use two forks to pull the meat apart into small shreds. Place in a large bowl, pour the barbecue sauce over top, and mix.

6.) Serve and enjoy!
