Inspired by an impromptu picnic on Friday The Chef made pulled pork for sammies … with NO crock pot!  Here is what he did … Simple, Yummy and budget friendly of course …

Pulled Pork (8)


  • 2 to 3 pound Pork Butt (boned & trimmed)
  • Minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup of GOOD Soy Sauce
  • About a tablespoon of Sriracha
  • Honey
  • White Wine Vinegar
  • Tomato Paste
  • Thyme
  • Oregano


  • PreHeat oven to 325 f
  • Mix all of the goodies above (Not the Pork) in a bowl
  • Dot the Butt with a pairing knife and then massage all the goodness into the meat
  • Create a base of heavy duty aluminum foil for the meat in a roasting pan … put in the meat and all of the goodness.
  • Fold the foil like a little package, the French term for this is en papillote.
  • Reduce the oven temp to 300 f; cook for 2 1/2 hours, open the foil pack and cook for about 1/2 an hour more.
  • Then PULL!

We served ours with homemade Half Sour Fridge Pickles and Ommegang Abbey Ale.

Lovely way to spend our second Saturday … that’s what we call Sunday on a three day weekend … More posts from The Chef to come.  The cooler it gets, the more he cooks.  Lucky me!  Lucky me!
