  • 1
    In a large heavy pot, add neutral oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the cubed pork butt (1-2 inch cubes) and brown well on all sides, cooking for 8-10 minutes total.
  • 2
    Add onion and garlic to the pot along with the pork. Add tomato paste and spices as well. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly until veggies soften.
  • 3
    Add diced tomatoes, brown sugar and beef broth to pot. Bring to a simmer and scrape up any bits stuck to the pan.
  • 4
    Cover pot and turn heat down to low. Simmer pork until it’s very tender, 75-90 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • 5
    Remove pork and shred. Add pork back to soup along with beans. Season soup with salt and pepper.
  • 6
    Serve pork garnished with parsley.

Expert Tips

  • While not necessary, I like to serve this soup with tortilla chips. They add a great crunch and are delicious dipped in the soup.

More About This Recipe
  • Making good pulled pork is sometimes an all day affair, and rightfully so. If you’re smoking a whole pork butt, it takes time. Of course the results are delicious. When you don’t have 12 hours and still want delicious pulled pork, try this easy pulled pork soup! Because the pork is cubed and simmered, it cooks relatively fast and shreds beautifully. Mixed with a few other simple ingredients, this soup is comfort food in a bowl. I like serving this soup with some fresh parsley and tortilla chips. You could add cheese or other toppings if you want, too!
