Instructions
 

For Oven

  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep the temperature low because the higher temperatures will quickly dry out the pork meat.
  • Add the pulled pork to the baking dish along with some meat juices. If you add the meat juices or broth, it is less likely to dry out the pork meat.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil or any other oven-safe method.
  • Place the covered baking dish in the oven and let it warm up.
  • Reheat the pork meat until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  • The time will depend on the quantity of the pulled pork you are reheating.
  • Add more liquids if needed and serve to enjoy.

For Crockpot

  • Add the pulled pork meat into the crockpot.
  • Pour leftover meat juices or broth over the pulled pork. If you don’t have any broth or meat juices, you can add sauces or simply wine.
  • Allow the pulled pork meat to warm up for at least an hour. Once the pulled pork has reached its internal temperature, remove and serve.

For Stovetop

  • Preheat the bottom skillet or Dutch oven.
  • Add pulled pork to the skillet and the meat juices or a splash of wine. 
  • Stir in evenly.
  • Cover the skillet with a lid and cook for 15 minutes until the pork meat reaches the desired temperature. 
  • Don’t let the pork meat dry out. 
  • After 15-20 minutes, you can check the temperature with the meat thermometer. 
  • Serve when the pulled pork is warmed up. 

For Microwave

  • Place pulled pork in the microwave dish. Add a splash of meat juices over the pork meat.
  • Put the baking dish in the microwave and heat for 3 minutes.
  • In just 3 minutes, the pork meat will probably reach its desired temperature.
  • You can remove the microwave dish to see whether the pork meat is warmed up or not.
  • If it is not warmed up nicely, you can heat it again for 2 minutes.
  • When it’s done, serve.

For Grilling

  • Use an indirect method for reheating pulled pork on the grill. Keep the heat on one side and the pork meat on the other.
  • Heat the grill to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Coat the pork meat with sauces or meat juices to add moisture.
  • Wrap the pulled pork meat with aluminum foil. Seal the edges with some water.
  • Place the pork meat onto the grill towards the heat.
  • Allow the pork to cook and reach its desired temperature.
  • Finally, unwrap pork meat and place it on a grill for another 5 minutes to achieve a flaky and crispy texture on the outside.
  • Remove and serve the warm pulled pork to enjoy.

For Sous Vide

  • Simmer your sous vide machine or a sizeable stove-top pot filled with water up to 165°F.
  • Place the sealed vacuum bags filled with pork into the machine/pot.
  • Let the bags sit in the hot water bath for 45 minutes per inch of the thickness of the contents.
  • If you are reheating your frozen pork, leave it in there for an additional 30 minutes.
  • You don’t need to worry about adding additional moisture because the bag is sealed and sous vide uses indirect heat to reheat your meat.
  • Once the pulled pork is warmed up, you can serve to enjoy.
