Indian Spiced Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

Indian Spiced Slow Cooked Pulled Pork

1Welcome to my Indian Spiced Pulled Pork.

I will admit now that I hate barbeque sauce. I have just always found it to be way too rich and salty for me and whenever anything is prepared in barbeque sauce I am always running away!

When I first discovered pulled pork (I think it was in 2010) I had seen a recipe in a magazine and gave it a go. It was with the traditional barbeque sauce and way too much brown sugar and I hated it.

I then spent a good six months perfecting it until I had it spot on.

Then I changed it around a bit and added a few more Indian spices and this is the version that I have now!

I love this method and it’s really easy to make and unlike many versions doesn’t require an overnight marinade.

The preparation time can take a while. This is because you have to measure out the different spices before you start cooking.

The spice blend can be altered so that you can have more/less spice depending on how curry like you enjoy your pulled pork.

  4. Rub in the seasoning to where you’ve added the olive oil so that you’re creating a nice layer of Indian spice.

This pulled pork is lovely in wraps or with a salad. We usually have it with a salad and some cauliflower rice.

    I’ve never heard of or seen pork seasoning. What’s in it and where do you find it? This sounds like a wonderful recipe!

      Hi Lorie,

      I get pork seasoning down at the local supermarket. It is among the herbs and seasonings and called pork seasoning. We get ours in jars but in some countries they serve it in sachets instead.
