BBQ Pulled Pork Buns

Sensational Sunday pulled pork buns are truly scrummy.  Slow cooked over night the deep flavours infused into the meat medley is superb!  This is comfort food at its best, just what is needed for our brunch after a long walk in the Derbyshire hills!

INGREDIENTS               SERVES 8 – 10

  • 4lb of boneless shoulder of pork
  • 1 large red onion, finely sliced
  • 3 tbsp. of tomato puree
  • 4 tbsp. of balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. of brown sugar or sweetener
  • 500 gram of passata
  • 3 tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp. of yellow mustard powder
  • 2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp mild chilli powder (optional)


This can be cooked in the oven for approximately 4 hours, or can be placed in the slow cooker for 8 hours, depending on the manufacturers directions.


Take the pork out of the packaging  and carefully take off any skin or fat with a sharp knife.  Place the pork into the slow cooker pot or a large casserole dish with a lid.

Add the onion, tomato puree, balsamic vinegar, sugar, passata, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper to the pork giving it a stir.  Place the lid on and leave it to cook.  If it has been in the slow cooker there will be quiet a lot of sauce, simply simmer it down on the hob.  Check the seasoning and the sweetness level adjust it according to taste.  With a fork pull apart the meat, add the sauce once thickened.

Serve with buns of your choice, crème fraiche or yogurt, fries or wedges and salad.  Tuck in!

  1. I’m drooling! I use a very similar recipe, but also take a little of the bbq sauce and mix with a little boiling water and a dash more of balsamic vinegar, and use it as a dipping sauce. I find it less “gloopy” than mixing the pulled pork entirely with the sauce. 🙂
