Mushroom “Pulled Pork” Recipe

Derek Sarno came into our kitchen and worked his magic to make this mouth-watering pulled ‘pork’. Mushrooms never tasted so meaty!


Pulled ‘Pork’

  • 8 King Oyster Mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tbsp Peri Peri Seasoning
  • Pinch Salt
  • 3 tbsp BBQ Sauce
  • Bread or Burger Buns
  • Egg-Free Mayo & BBQ sauce (we mixed ours together!)
  • Red Onion
  • Cucumber


  1. Use a fork to shred each of the king oyster mushrooms until they resemble the texture of pulled chicken or pork, and leave in a baking dish.
  2. Coat the shredded mushrooms with the vegetable oil and peri peri seasoning, it helps to use your hand to ensure all the mushrooms are evenly covered.
  3. Put the baking dish in the oven at 180℃ (356℉) for 30 minutes to dry the mushrooms out.
  4. Warm a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a pan, and pour the shredded mushrooms into it. Season with a decent pinch of salt and stir.
  5. Next, stir in the BBQ sauce until it’s mixed evenly through all the mushrooms.
  6. Remove from the heat and serve in burger buns with cucumber and red onion. We made a mix of BBQ sauce and egg-free mayo which went with it perfectly!
