Have you ever had soy curls or heard of soy curls? They are delicious (if done correctly) and take on any flavor you throw at it. Soy curls are dried up soy beans that you rehydrate. They go perfect for this vegan pulled pork recipe.
How do you work with soy curls?
You start by rehydrating your soy curls, this is super easy. Pour the bag into a bowl and cover them with warm water, let them sit for 10 minutes. After the 10
How? You squeeze them I usually just take a hand full and squeeze until the water is mostly out. This doesn’t take a long time, but it is an extra step. Once you’re all squeezed you can move on!
I like to get a small bowl and mix all my seasoning together, just so everything is all mixed together well. Then throw your soy curls into the Instapot and mix your seasoning until evenly coated.
Next, you’re going to take your favorite BBQ sauce. I have been working on my own recipe, but I haven’t gotten it quite right. So, let’s roll with store bought for now. You’re going to add part of the bbq sauce now and part of after it cooks. Just add enough until it’s coated decently. Now add your half cup of vegetable broth. Then you’re going to let the Instapot do its magic. Let that baby cook for 25 minutes and come to a natural release.
Once it’s done you can add as much BBQ sauce as you would like.
We love these vegan bbq pulled pork sandwiches with a big slab of broccoli slaw. If you have never had Broccoli slaw, check this recipe out here.
