If you think you have to spend hours by the barbecue pit to make pulled pork, think again. We’ve done the slow cooking for you—all you need to do is add some sauce and voila! These babies are done. But just because they’re fast doesn’t mean they’re lacking in finesse. In addition to the smoky and sweet flavors on the meat, there are crisp and crunchy quick-pickled cucumbers and a creamy cabbage and carrot slaw.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat (use a nonstick pan if you have one). Add pork, breaking up meat into pieces with a wooden spoon. Stir in barbecue seasoning, barbecue sauce, ketchup, and 2 TBSP water. Allow to warm through, then season with salt and pepper. TIP: Add a splash of water if sauce seems dry.
