Recipe: Pulled Feral Pork Sandwiches

An intentionally simple feral pork recipe to allow the feral pork flavor to come through, these sandwiches were a big hit at our “Invasivore Tailgate” earlier this year!


4lb feral pig shoulder roast

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 large yellow onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1.5 cups tomato ketchup

0.5 cup yellow mustard

Water as needed


  1.  Coat bottom of slow cooker with vegetable oil
  2. Add pork roast to center of slow cooker
  3. Stir in all ingredients, making sure to spoon mixture over pork roast
  4. Add water until roast is halfway submerged, then add water occasionally to maintain water level
  5. Cook low for 6-8 hours until meat easily falls off the bone
  6. While still in slow cooker, use a pair of forks to shred pork meat, removing fat as desired
  7. Enjoy on a toasted bun.  Optional: Top with coleslaw to enjoy your sandwich “southern style!”
