Brown Sugar & Balsamic Pulled Pork

This is a really simple easy pulled pork recipe that uses only a few ingredients and is easy to prepare.  The taste is absolutely amazing for such a simple pulled pork recipe.  This will definitely become one of your favourite pork dishes.

The shredded pork is initially rubbed in a brown sugar, Dijon mustard and balsamic mix.  This provides a wonderful juicy, tender tasty base.  However, what really elevates this dish to another level is the amazing brown sugar, soy sauce & balsamic glaze that is simmered and thickened before being drizzled over the pork.

Pulled pork is definitely one of our family’s favourite dishes.  We really could have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Our family is divided between which is our favourite pulled pork recipe.  Our two favourites are the Brown Sugar Balsamic Pulled Pork recipe listed here and this Texas Pulled Pork recipe.  It’s so hard to choose, both are really special.

We usually serve our pulled pork on bread rolls with this Red Cabbage Coleslaw recipe.

Many people prefer to cook their pulled pork with a slow cooker and that is OK as well.  I tend to find I get better results with my pressure cooker as well as it being a much quicker process.  However, cook the pork in whichever method suits you best.

This is a great meal for any day of the week.
