26 Times Pulled Pork Was The Answer To All Of Life's Problems

Truly a food for the Gods

Pulled pork has only really been experiencing its 15 minutes of fame quite recently, but it got us to thinking... how on Earth did we go so long without it?!

It's tangy, yet sweet, refined yet versatile and out of the ordinary without having notions. One of the very few dishes you could enjoy any time of day, and is as good for you as it is delicious. A winning combo.

But, more importantly, it's more than just a sandwich filler, it's a friend. The kind godparent of the delicious shredded meat world.

Let's take a look at all of the times pulled pork was there for you in times of woe...

1. That time it was put in this burger with barbecue sauce

Not to mention, chips.


2. This time it was cooked so crispy it matched a black plate 

Are we dreaming?


3. That time it was put on fresh tostada with lime

Is this real life?


4. This time it changed the barbecue game forever

G'way with your sausages and burgers. Child's play.


5. This time it was paired with CHEESE

There is a God.
