EASY Pulled Pork in the Oven

I made this pulled pork and it’s SO easy and wildly delicious! I got the recipe years ago from one of my girlfriend’s and I’ve been making it ever since! I used a Boston But Roast and the prep takes about 5 minutes. Pop it in the oven and 4 hours later you have the juiciest moistest pork that shreds like butter! I serve with rice on day 1 and the next day I turn it into a pulled pork sandwich with some BBQ sauce! YOU MUST TRY!

Tips & Tricks: 

  • Serve with Rice: Here is my basic white rice recipe: (I used jasmine rice)
    1. to a sauce pan add 2 cups of water, 1-2 tbsp. of butter, 1 tsp. of Better Than Bouillon (chicken base), heavy pinch of salt. Then bring it to a boil.
    2. once it’s boiling add 1 cup of white rice. I used jasmine but medium or long grain white rice works perfectly too.
    3. cover with a tight fitting lid and lower the heat down to a 2. (on a scale of 1-10)
    4. leave alone for about 2–25 minutes
    5. uncover, fluff up, and let sit for about 5-10 minutes
    6. Serve and enjoy!
  • Seasoning: The seasoning makes this dish! Here are links to the two most important seasonings:
  • Tin Foil: The key to this dish is covering the baking dish TIGHT! NO AIR gets through! I usually double up on the tin foil and keep it CLOSED tight!
  • Cookware: Use a baking dish. I use a Pyrex: https://amzn.to/36NZM7P

  7. place the lemon slices you squeezed in the baking dish beside the roast
  8. scatter the onions slices all around and over the roast
  9. cover the dish VERY tightly with tin foil (no air gets in)
  10. bake for 4 hours at 300
    1. baste every hour and make sure you cover tightly again each time

  14. The next day if you have leftovers mix the pulled pork with BBQ sauce and make BBQ sandwiches
