Pulled Pork Seasoning Mix

Every year my husband looks forward to Ribfest like it's Christmas. He works downtown on the street where it's held and the sweet smell of BBQ sauce wafts in his windows for a week. His favourite is the pulled pork sandwhiches, so I thought I would try to create a mix variation to get him pumped up for the big event.

Pulled pork seasoning mix (single use)

2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

What else you'll need

2 pounds boneless pork or chicken
1 can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons vinegar

I used chicken because I don't really like pork. Throw all ingredients into your slow cooker and cook on low for 10 hours. Shred the meat with a fork when it's done and mix it in with the sauce.

Serve hot on buns. My husband said even though it was chicken it tasted just like pulled pork. He was a pretty happy man that day.


  1. No, it's very mild and slightly sweet. You can add cayenne if you want heat.
