Tennessee Pulled Pork For Dogs With All The Fixins’


In Tennessee, barbecue is taken seriously, especially pulled pork.  A regional recipe, pulled pork is “pulled” so fine, it resembles pate’.  Yeah, fancy.

This is also a “person-friendly’ recipe, but you may want to add a little salt, and yep, barbecue sauce.  For your dog though, nothin can be more simple as this.

Now, we say you have to add all the “fix-ins” to this recipe to make a special meal treat.  Brickle and Digby love whole wheat pasta or brown rice with organic collard greens.  After all, we are in the south y’all.


1 pound pork shoulder butt cut into cubes with extra fat removed

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon molasses


Marinate meat with honey, vinegar and molasses the night before.  Drain off marinade, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake on a non-stick cooking pan sprayed with cooking spray for 40 minutes.  Let cool completely.  Serve over your dog’s favorite side dishes, but collard greens? They are required in Tennessee.

Disclaimer: This is meant as a treat and not a regular meal replacement.  Always consult a vet before making any changes to your dog’s diet.  And never serve hot food to your dog.
