Simple Pulled Pork Meal

If you love pulled pork, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to enjoy it! With this recipe, you can make it into a quick lunch to take with you or for a simple dinner for one. To share as a side dish or dinner main dish for a crowd, just double or triple the ingredient amounts.

While this recipe calls for store-bought pulled pork, it also works wonderfully to use up leftovers from an event. If you have plenty of leftovers, you may also want to try our Pulled Pork and Green Bean Rice Dinner using our whole grain Ready to Serve Brown Rice as a base. Or, a New Orleans Red Beans and Rice topped with pulled pork for an extra savory flavor.

If you’d like to switch things up, you can use shredded rotisserie chicken or beef in place of pulled pork.

Quick and Easy Whole Grains

You might be interested in adding more whole grains to your meals as they help keep you feeling full with added flavor and texture. However, they often have a long cook time making them more difficult to include when you just don’t have time to cook! That’s where Minute® Ready to Serve Rice comes in handy.

We’ve got a wide assortment of pre-mixed whole grain rice and quinoa varieties or blends which make preparing your meals hassle-free as they heat up in the microwave in just 1 minute!
