Pulled pork is shredded pork that is slow cooked, and often dressed with juices or barbecue sauce. Pulled pork can be served by itself or on a bun as a sandwich. If you have leftover pulled pork that you'd like to reheat, you can use a simple method that adds moisture as it warms so the pork doesn't become dried out. The method is simple and doesn't take a lot of time.
Things You'll Need
- Medium saucepan
- Water, broth, or barbecue sauce
Place the leftover pulled pork into a medium saucepan. Set the heat to medium.
Add just enough water, broth, or barbecue sauce so that the pork is thoroughly coated without being drenched. Stir constantly as the pork heats. If you use water, also add a little bit of salt and pepper for extra flavor.
Bring the pork to a simmer and allow it to cook for about five minutes to ensure that the extra flavor from the juice or sauce is being absorbed into the meat.
Remove the pork from the heat and allow it to cool off for five minutes before serving.
