How to Make Pulled Pork Vegetable Soup

This soup is super easy to make. In a large stockpot or Dutch oven bring pulled pork, chicken broth, corn, mixed vegetables, tomatoes, chili powder, onion, and garlic to a boil. Simmer for a few minutes. Add some instant brown rice and cook until the rice is tender.

Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • For the pulled pork, I used some smoked pulled pork from Costco. It is crazy delicious.
  • If you don’t have access to Costco, just look for pre-cooked pulled pork at the grocery store. It is where the other prepared meats are. At my store, it is near the diced ham and pre-made potatoes near the produce section.
  • Look for pulled pork that doesn’t have BBQ sauce on it. Walmart sells their Great Value brand of uncured pulled pork without sauce.
  • You can also pick up a pound of smoked pork from your favorite BBQ joint.
  • I used instant brown rice. Feel free to substitute instant white rice.
  • If you want to use regular white or brown rice, you will need to increase the cooking time to get the rice cooked. I would simmer the soup with the regular rice the time the package suggests for cooking. You may need to add more broth if using regular rice.
  • Can Pulled Pork Vegetable Soup be made in the crockpot? Yes! Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook for 6 to 8 hours on LOW. Add rice and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • To make this a freezer meal – place all ingredients, except rice, in a gallon ziplock bag. Place in the freezer. When ready to cook, place the contents of the freezer bag into the slow cooker and cook for 6 to 8 hours on LOW. Add rice and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Can freeze leftovers in ziplock bags for later. To reheat, thaw, and reheat in the microwave, on the stovetop or in the slow cooker.

  1. I made it with Walmart brand uncured pulled pork and it was on the table in less than 30 minutes. Added a wee bit of apple cider vinegar and brown sugar at the end of cooking. Omitted rice. This recipe is 5 stars! No exaggeration. So little work for such good taste! Thank you!
