  • Hutch's Recipe Corner
  • Cajun Pulled Pork
  • Ingredients
    • 5 lbs Pork Shoulder or Boston Butt
    • Cajun Tasso Seasoning (see below)
    • 12 oz Coca Cola or Dr Pepper, room temp
  • Directions
    • Rub pork completely with 1 cup of tasso seasoning. Discard any leftover seasoning that's touched pork. Allow pork to rest, uncovered 6 - 12 hours in fridge. When ready to cook: Preheat oven to 220F. Pour room temp soda in roasting pan. Place tassoed pork in roasting pan. Cover with aluminum foil. Cook 8 - 12 hours or until "fork tender" - (usually 2 hours per pound and pork easily pulls apart.) Drain and place pork in a bowl and shred with fork.
