BBQ Pulled Pork Burger

I didn't think much of pulled pork until I had them at some cafes. The most recent ones was at Soup Spoon Reunion where I really like the soft and moist pulled pork. So when I invited my in-laws over to my place to celebrate Singapore's 50th birthday this evening, I decided to make pulled pork burger. After searching on the web for a while, I decided to on the slow cooker pulled pork. And amazingly, it used only THREE ingredients!! With no experience on this before, the lesser the ingredients, the easier it will be right? So this three-ingredient recipe was perfect for me. This was how I made it.
Recipe for Slow Cooker Pulled Pork, adapted from tablespoon.
(Serves at least 15 persons, for 20 buns)

2.5kg Pork shoulder (or pork loin. I used "wu hua rou")
1 can Root beer
1 bottle Barbecue sauce

20 Homemade burger buns

1. Wash the pork shoulder and remove the fats.
2. Place the pork in a slow cooker and pour the can of root beer over the meat. 
3. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until pork shreds easily with a fork.
4. After pork has cooked, drain and discard the root beer. 
5. Shred the pork and place it back in the slow cooker. 
6. Pour the barbecue sauce over the pork, add pepper and salt and stir to combine.

To assemble Pulled Pork Burger:
1. Lightly toast burger bun.
2. Add cheddar cheese.
3. Put fried egg.
4. Place bbq pulled pork on top.
5. Add corn kernels followed by caramelised onions.
6. Topped with bun and enjoy!

I was really surprised the pulled pork was really soft and tender. My in-laws really liked the burger and the overall taste blended well. Even though the bun was only the size of a fist, it was really filling with all these toppings. If you are holding a party, you can  consider making a mini pulled pork burger. Your guests will be wow!

Thanks Grace. It was really good with the BBQ sauce. I really like it too! I'm not so much of a "pork" person, but this was really good! Use pork with some fats within. It really melts in the mouth.
