BBQ Pulled Pork Empanadas | Hungry AF



Pigs in a blanket are so last season. BBQ pulled pork empanadas are for the cool kids.

For more Hungry AF recipes:


4 lbs pork shoulder, fat trimmed
1 can root beer
3/4 cup BBQ sauce, or to taste
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1/2 tablespoon cayenne,
1/2 tablespoon garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
2 packages of prepared pie dough
1 egg plus 2 tablespoons water


Season pork shoulder with spices and salt and pepper. Place in baking dish and pour root beer around the sides. Slow roast in oven at 325 degrees F for about 3 1/2 to 4 hours, or until pork is tender and falls off the bone.

Shred pork and mix in the BBQ sauce. Set aside.

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Place pie crust dough on a lightly flour surface. Cut out round discs. Place a small amount of pork filling in the center of each round. Be sure not to overfill.

Fold dough in half to form a half circle. Press edges together to seal, and work from one end to another, creating pleats. Place on a greased parchment lined baking sheet.

Mix egg with 2 tablespoons water. Brush the egg wash on the surfaces. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
