In case you haven’t noticed — we are a huge football family. Not only do all the boys play and the husband coaches, we love nothing more than to watch football on Sunday. This time of year, we tend to make an exception and sometimes we will even eat Sunday Supper in the family room. Of course this only happens if our favorite team is playing. Ok, sometimes it is more often than that. On those occasions, one of our favorite meals is Football Sunday Teriyaki Pulled Pork. Mom especially like this recipe because I throw it all in the slow cooker in the morning and forget about it until it is almost time to eat Sunday Supper. Meanwhile, the smile flowing through our home has us drooling until the tasty pork is ready to be housed in its bun. My kids and all their friends love this Teriyaki Pulled Pork and ask for it time and time again.Football Sunday Teriyaki Pulled Pork #SundaySupper

Yum! I would definitely enjoy this while watching football…and while not watching football! Great recipe!


BusyWorkingMama January 5, 2014 at 7:01 am

Your recipe sounds delicious! I bought my husband a smoker for his birthday last month and we’re experimenting with chicken and ribs today. Wish us luck!


Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers January 5, 2014 at 8:49 am

You can’t go wrong with football food and I am so loving the combination of teriyaki sauce and pork! Great idea! Your sandwich looks just amazing!!


Cindys Recipes and Writings January 5, 2014 at 9:09 am

I haven’t had pulled pork in ages! I never made pork with beef broth. Sounds so good teriyaki style, Isabel!


Renee - Kudos Kitchen January 5, 2014 at 9:15 am

This looks like one winner of a recipe Isabel! SCORE!


Lea Ann (Cooking On The Ranch) January 5, 2014 at 10:03 am

Football??? I live in Denver, need I say more?? We’re Bronco crazy every year. And Peyton has added fuel to that frenzy fire. :) Thank you so much for this recipe because I’ve just found my Superbowl dish. This sounds delicious and so interesting with that teriyaki. Pinned! So nice to find your blog through Sunday Supper.


Tammi @ Momma's Meals January 5, 2014 at 10:04 am

Gosh darn it I wish I had a pork roast in the freezer because this one looks fantastic, I bet my husband would be all over it, I may have to run out and get one!! Thanks for sharing one of your family favorites!!


Liz January 5, 2014 at 10:31 am

You make the BEST pulled pork, Isabel! I love this version, too…as would my whole family!


Cheryl January 5, 2014 at 11:11 am

Sure looks good! What a fun way to share a Sunday meal together, even if it’s not the traditional, gather everyone around the dinner table meal, if the family is all together, enjoying one another, that’s what counts! (It’s even OK if they’re routing for different teams, although it can get a little dicey when that happens, at least that’s how it is at my sister’s house sometimes) Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe! HUGS!


Lori @ Foxes Love Lemons January 5, 2014 at 11:40 am

Great recipe, Isabel. I’m already envisioning using leftovers from this to make some pork fried rice the next day :)


Julie @ Texan New Yorker January 5, 2014 at 11:58 am

We love football in our house too. This looks great, I have yet to meet a pulled pork I didn’t like.


Robyn Wright of January 5, 2014 at 12:23 pm

Looks and sounds delicious – will have to try for sure. Just pinned it too!


Shaina January 5, 2014 at 12:25 pm

This definitely sounds like the perfect Football Sunday food!


Wendy (The Weekend Gourmet) January 5, 2014 at 12:28 pm

How fun is this…and only a handful of ingredients too! I just received a new slow cooker that I plan to use often. This one’s on my short list, because we too watch football every Sunday…and then we’re big Houston Rockets fans too!


Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips January 5, 2014 at 12:57 pm

We break the rules during football season, too! And this looks amazing. I bet it would be good over rice, too!


Courtney @ Neighborfood January 5, 2014 at 1:23 pm

Oh yes! We are big football fans around here as well and I’m sure everyone would go nuts for these sandwiches! Ya gotta have something to munch while you’re stress-watching a game, right?


Constance Smith (@FoodieArmyWife) January 5, 2014 at 1:30 pm

I think this pulled pork is a touch down!!! Great recipe Isabel :D


The Ninja Baker January 5, 2014 at 3:46 pm

Thank you, Isabel, for a touchdown recipe for my UNC, Chapel Hill alumni hubby whose college days saw many meals of pulled pork…Appreciate, too, how you’ve balanced the sweet of the teriyaki sauce with the bite of the garlic and onion powders!


Marie@citronlimette January 5, 2014 at 3:57 pm

Great recipe Isabel for a game night. Looks amazingly good.


Betsy @ Desserts Required January 5, 2014 at 10:21 pm

This is the perfect meal to enjoy while cheering on your favorite team! Great way to start the year, Isabel!


Tammy Northrup January 5, 2014 at 10:55 pm

I can see this becoming a favorite in our house very soon! My husband loves teriyaki.


Susan January 5, 2014 at 11:49 pm

Okay, now I really have an incentive to figure out what box my slow cooker is hiding in because your pulled pork is calling my name. Love the use of teriyaki sauce instead of bbq.


Hezzi-D January 6, 2014 at 6:53 am

I love pulled pork! This looks perfect for game day.


Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious January 6, 2014 at 10:48 am

Or for Football Monday!


Lane January 6, 2014 at 1:19 pm

Yummy! This would be great for tacos too.


Tara January 6, 2014 at 2:08 pm

My mouth is totally watering thinking about biting into that amazing looking sandwich, perfect for football!!!


Renee January 7, 2014 at 12:53 pm

We rarely watch football however we often eat pulled pork sandwiches. I’m so glad you shared this version as we seem to be stuck on BBQ and need a change.


Sarah | Curious Cuisiniere January 7, 2014 at 8:46 pm

Oh my! We love pulled pork, but we’ve never thought to do teriyaki. This must happen soon!


Stacy January 9, 2014 at 10:26 pm

Pork and teriyaki go together so beautifully, Isabel. I love, love, love this recipe and am pinning it on my Recipes to Try board.


David @ CookingChat January 25, 2014 at 8:53 am

Love pulled pork! Don’t think I’ve had it teriyaki style, curious to try it.


Lauri Rottmayer January 26, 2014 at 7:09 am

This is delish! I made it with a pork loin that was way too lean, though. Next time, I’ll choose a juicer cut. :-)


FamilyFoodie January 26, 2014 at 11:11 am

Let me know how it turns out with a juicier cut.
