North Carolina Pulled Pork

  • By: Monica Resinger

  • Since trying this recipe years ago, I haven't been able to cook pork roast any other way; it is fabulous! I usually serve it with garlic bread to sop up the juices. Coleslaw goes with it very well also. The vinegar, ketchup and water are the most important ingredients to the sauce. I have added other spices on hand when out of the ones listed and it always turns out just as good.


    4-5 lb. Pork Roast
    Seasoning Salt
    1 tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. Celery Seed
    1/4 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
    1/4 C. Vinegar (any kind)
    1/2 C. Ketchup
    1/2 tsp. Chili Powder
    1/4 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
    1/2 tsp. Sugar
    1 C. Water
    Tabasco Sauce, to taste

    Brown the roast in a small amount of fat in a Dutch oven or roaster. Season with seasoning salt.
    Mix the rest of the ingredients, excluding the Tabasco Sauce, and poor over the browned roast.
    Bake in a preheated 325 oven, about 40 minutes to the pound, until done and very tender. When done, pull the pork with two forks until it is all shredded, then mix all meat and juice together.
    Let people add Tabasco Sauce to taste on their servings.
