Pulled Pork with Cornbread Topping

Pulled Pork with Cornbread Topping

I have been making my favorite Ultra Crispy Roast Pork every time I found a nice looking skin-on bone-in shoulder. While the roast pork is really delicious, we always end up having lots of leftover. So now, I need to get creative with leftover. I made roast pork fried rice, pulled pork sandwiches, roast pork salad, etc. Today, I tried Pulled Pork with Cornbread Topping.

Use 2 forks, or just hands (LOL!) to pull the pork to shreds. This is really easy as the pork shoulder was roasted for a good 8 hours the day before and it’s super tender. Mix in your favorite BBQ sauce. I like Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce and mix it with my own Memphis sauce which is a bit more spicier. 

Make cornbread mix by stir together cornmeal, flour, almond flour, salt, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, plain yogurt and milk. Pour cornbread mix over BBQ pulled pork.

Preheat oven to 350F, bake for 30 minutes. Test with toothpick for doneness.
