Apple Jack Pulled Pork Buns – Easiest Pulled Pork Ever – Food Wishes ctm magazine

We’re stewing with apple juice and whiskey to produce one of my favorite versions of pulled pork, ever. I love the traditional, slowly smoked method, but this is much faster, easier, and ensures moist, tender meat every time. Enjoy!

For the fully formatted, printable, written recipe, follow this link:

    Wow.. I'm looking forward to making this…

  • Russell on May 20, 2022

    I 100% guarantee at least one person is going to ask what to use instead of alcohol even though you explained it.

  • alch3myau on May 20, 2022

    Chef John why didn't you use Applejack?! It's a real thing that you can buy at the liquor store!

  • Ultracity6060 on May 20, 2022

    Wait, it's called apple jack pulled pork because of Jack Daniels? Not because of Apple Jack cider? This is french fries, Baker's chocolate, and German chocolate cake all over again.

  • Ori Fox on May 20, 2022

    i admit i was surprised this wasn't made with the cold distilled apple liquor called "applejack" which is ultimately a moonshine

  • robbicu on May 20, 2022

    OMG Reese Witherspoon….
    I about peed myself!

  • mello on May 20, 2022

    wonderful Bon Appetite

  • Blair Westerman on May 20, 2022

    Bought a nice butt roast and a bottle of bourbon to make this tomorrow for my son & I…looking forward to some pulled pork sliders when we get home from fishing, (unless we catch fish, lol). Thx Chef, Cheers!🇨🇦

  • Adrian D on May 20, 2022

    I can imagine that this would work well with an Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker as well(?)

  • firsy on May 20, 2022

    that reese witherspoon bar was straight fire, that shit turned me gay and back

  • MaxShiraz on May 20, 2022

    "Reese Withersoon" – that's the best yet!

  • Blyndem Denkilem on May 20, 2022

    That is a really nice cook pot. There's no way I could wait a day after cooking this, though. But there would probably be leftovers that make it that far.

  • Light Theory LLC on May 21, 2022

    Pork is forbidden 🚫 for those mindful of ALLAH

  • Xmas on May 21, 2022

    Reese Witherspoon/Grease With A Spoon. ……everyone else go home, we have our winner. 🤣

  • ed zmuda on May 21, 2022

    There’s an amazing American apple brandy called “Apple Jack”. Based on the title of this dish, I was surprised not to see it as an ingredient.

  • asdfasdf1331 on May 21, 2022

    So, not using an apple jack, then? The liquor made from apples?

  • Tyler Swank on May 21, 2022

    I've made a very similar recipe, and you can use a crock pot for the reheating step. It works great and you can have it out for people to help themselves to sandwiches for hours. I don't recommend actually cooking it in the crockpot (you can, but it's better from a stove since the juices reduce much more), but for the reheating and serving it's great. I've served it at poker games many times and I've never had leftovers.

  • rally618 on May 21, 2022

    looks awesome😋

  • sonsie Hollingsworth on May 21, 2022

    Can't wait for the bun recipe 😋 That looked amazing ❤

  • CantankerousDave on May 21, 2022

    Huh. From the name, I assumed he’d be using actual applejack (extremely hard apple cider), not a mix of juice and Jack Daniels.

  • poop on May 21, 2022

    @3:59 "I paid for that fat, and I'll eat that fat!" is for sure going to be on my tombstone.

  • siamsasean on May 21, 2022

    "Greese Withaspoon" Aaauugghhhh!!!

    Well played, sir! A hit, a palpable hit!

  • Snacksation on May 21, 2022

    That food is looking goood 🥹

  • Time Rock Orchestra on May 21, 2022

    Recipe looks good, but I'm starting to get tired of people calling braised pork "pulled pork". Low and slow in a smoker with rub and no humidity VS low and slow with braising liquid ain't the same cooking method at all. It's like calling roastbeef a grilled steak, just cause you used the same cut.

  • L. P. on May 21, 2022

    Chef John I remember making some thing very similar to this with leftovers from the pork braised in cider with cream sauce recipe a few years ago.

  • Monkey Monk on May 21, 2022

    I'm the Reese Witherspoon of removing grease with a spoon. Very funny. Now I can die in peace.

  • Reada saed elsayed on May 21, 2022

    ممكن ترجمة باللغة العربية كى تسهل الاستفادة

  • Wade Powell on May 21, 2022

    As an avid fan it was tough to watch you boil meat without browning it first.

  • Rikki Tissier on May 21, 2022

    "You are after all the Reese Witherspoon of removing grease with a spoon" is the BEST example of that pun you've ever done. Amazing.

  • scyban12 on May 21, 2022

    Ummm….can you go over how to get a two inch chuck again? I'm not quite sure I understand the process. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • bobbler42 on May 21, 2022

    The Reese Witherspoon line is special.

  • Chris on May 21, 2022

    For skimming off fat I started using oil absorbent pads from West Marine, they absorb fat but not water…

  • wsa18 on May 21, 2022

    Shit, I'm drooling

  • Aaron Johnson on May 21, 2022

    I bought a box of apple Jack's cereal. my mistake.

    edit: I'm going for it. like chef John says "that's just you cooking."
