Deep fried pulled pork burger

I know a lot of you are always asking what to do with leftover pulled pork. I think I’ve got the best solution.
What if Colonel Sanders decided to make deep-fried pork instead of chicken. Maybe it would look something like the deep-fried pulled pork burger I made here.

  • 1 kg Left over pulled pork Depending on how much left-over you have
  • 250 grams butter
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 L chicken stock
  • 2 tsp BBQ rub
  • 1 piece cheese 1 slice per burger

For the breading station

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour Adjust to the amount of burgers you're making
  • 3 pieces eggs
  • 1 cup breadcrumb Adjust to the amount of burgers you're making

Pulled pork sauce

  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp Ketjap Manis
  • 2 tbsp worchestershire sauce

For the burger

  • 1 piece burger bun Adjust to the amount you're making
  • 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp shredded lettuce
  • 4 pieces sliced pickles
  • 1 tbsp sliced onion


  • We start by making a quick roux. Melt the butter. Add all-purpose flour to that until you have a smooth paste. Stir and cook it until your roux becomes brown.
  • Add the chicken stock to it until it is smooth.Mix the roux with the pulled pork till you have a kneadable consistency. Add a bit of BBQ rub to boost the flavors.
  • Take a sheet of aluminum foil and flatten the pulled pork paste out untile you have the thickness of a burger. Stick this in the fridge to firm up for at least 6 hours.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the sauce and heat it up and let it come to a boil. Stir it until you have a syrupy bubble. Then let it cool down.
  • Take the flattened pulled pork out of the fridge and cut it into patties with a round cutter. Take a slice of cheese and cut it a bit smaller and stick in between 2 of those patties. Press them together until they form one burger.
  • Make a breading station with a plate off all-purpose flour, one plate with 3 eggs, and a plate of breadcrumbs. Beat the eggs until they are loose.
  • Take the patties and dip them first in the flour. Dip it in the eggs and finally in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat up your frying pan to 180°C/356°F and slide the patties in the hot oil. Let them swim until they are golden brown. Place them on a cooling rack to let the fat drip off.
  • Slice open a bun, put on some mayonnaise, shredded lettuce, pickles, the deep-fried pulled porker pattie. Then some onion slices and finish with the sauce and the crown of the bun.
