Coles pulled pork

Have you ever wondered what Coles pulled pork is like? Well I bought some and want to share my thoughts on this product.

You can find this amid other prepared meat products like lamb shanks and beef ribs in the meat section of any Coles supermarket.

While I usually buy meat in its plain butchered raw form without any flavourings or marinades, I looked at this and thought why not. It’s already been cooked and just needs reheating in an oven. You could also heat it through using a microwave oven if you were in a hurry. Who would have thought you could prepare a pulled pork meal in hurry!

See you can even cook this on the stove top as well as in the oven.

So I tried it out. I thought the best way to try this product out was in a pulled pork and macaroni cheese taco. I do have some leftover which will go into toasted sandwiches which I will enjoy at work.

Last night as part of Taco Saturday, I prepared the pulled pork. It was very easy. I opened the plastic bag, emptied the contents into a pyrex bowl, covered it with aluminium (yes that’s the correct spelling my American friends ) foil and then put it into a hot oven. After 15 minutes I took off the foil and basted the meat. I cooked it for a further 15 minutes and then pulled it out and allowed it to rest a little before pulling apart the meat. It was very easy and the meat was very tasty. The packet says it’s enough to serve two people.

I put one serve into my pulled pork and macaroni cheese taco and put the rest into an airtight container and refrigerated it.

In my opinion Coles pulled pork is a good product. Who knows what preservatives and other things have been added to it to keep it on the shelves and to make it tender. It tasted good and it was tender. I’m happy to recommend it. Please note I have done this product review without any suggestion from Coles or anyone else. If Coles would like me to do product reviews they can contact me.

  1. I must say that your taco combination is interesting! Never thought of combining pulled pork and mac n cheese, (even though they are do often served together – aka Southern style, just not in taco form!)

  2. Convenience food is a great help to a busy person who still wants to eat well. I wish I’d had some of that delicious looking pulled pork to put in my tamales a couple of weeks ago.

    1. Hopefully somewhere close to you will offer something similar soon. Most of the time I prefer to make these things myself but sometimes, convenience is king. 😃
