  • Pork Shoulder (2-3 lbs)

  • 1/2 cup fresh Dandy Radish Ministicks


 Pickled Radishes:

  • Place a small saucepan over high heat and add water, red wine vinegar, honey, salt, whole mustard seeds and whole fennel seeds and bring to a boil, then remove from heat.
  • In a mason jar combine Dandy Radish Ministicks and pickling liquid and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Pulled Pork

  • In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, smoked paprika, turmeric and ground fennel.  Pour mixture onto pork and spread it evenly all over the meat.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and place a dutch oven over medium high heat.  Add olive oil to the pan and once it is heated add pork and brown on both sides (about 30 seconds per side).
  • Then add onion, liquid smoke, barbecue sauce and 1/4 cup orange juice.
  • Cover and place in the preheated oven for 3-4 hours or until nice and tender!
  • Remove pork from the dutch oven and shred, then add back into the pot with 1/4 cup orange juice and stir to combine.


  • Add cabbage to a large bowl. In a small jar combine red wine vinegar, coconut sugar, olive oil and salt and shake to combine.  Pour dressing over cabbage.
  • Remove pickled radishes from the jar and add to the cabbage.  Then add the fresh Dandy Radish Ministicks and stir everything to combine.


For Serving:  Top pulled pork with coleslaw and serve it in cabbage cups or on bread!

*You can also use a slow cooker instead of a dutch oven and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

*INSTANT POT:  Follow the instructions the same way but do the sauté part in the instant pot then put it on manual for 55 minutes!
