I originally bought the pork for this recipe to make my Slow Cooker Pulled Pork. But got so sidetracked with other things I forget to put the meat and ingredients in my slow cooker and it was too late by that time to do the full slow cooked process, so figured I'd try a quick stove top version. I'd already made my Coleslaw, so I couldn't do without the main part, right?

This worked amazing well, the sauce was sooo good and I have plenty left too which is going into another recipe for you all very soon, so watch this space.

Because the Stove Top Pulled Pork isn't slow cooked, you won't get the same shredding with forks. I remove the meat to a chopping board and shred with a sharp knife and then shred apart with two forks before adding back to the sauce.

Stove Top Low Syn Pulled Pork

  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1 tablespoon of cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce

  1. Add the pork and red onion to a large deep frying pan.

  3. Place on a medium high heat and bring to a boil, as it starts to bubble reduce heat to medium and allow it to continue to simmer (no lid) for 30 mins.
  4. The sauce will reduce down and thicken and the meat goes lovely and tender.
  5. (Do not stir while cooking, let it do it's work)
  6. If the sauce looks like it is reducing too much just add a little more drop of water.
  7. When finished cooking time, remove meat onto a board, shredded with a sharp knife and return back to the sauce.
  8. Season with salt and black pepper as needed
  9. Serve with your choice of sides
  10. Great with my coleslaw
