Instant Meals: Pulled Pork Burritos

This recipe is FBC (Freezer Bag Cooking) friendly and has both it and one pot method directions.

You can eat it as a simple dish or do as we did and make them into burrito/tacos to get a few more calories and carbs in the meal.

Pulled pork is an interesting freeze-dried meat, that most haven’t tried. It can be left in chunks or powdered with your fingers.

Pulled Pork Burritos

Pack in a quart freezer or sandwich bag:

Also Take:

  • flour tortillas (2 to 4 depending on size and appetite) (used Street Taco size)
  • 1 Tbsp or 1 packet olive oil

FBC Method:

Place freezer bag in a FBC Cozy or similar. Add in the oil and 1¼ cups boiled water. Stir well and seal tightly. Let sit for 15 minutes.

One Pot Method:

Add 1¼ cups water and the oil to a small pot (1.3 to 1.5 liters), bring to a boil. Add in the dry ingredients, stirring well. Cover tightly and turn off the stove.

In cooler temperatures pr at altitude use a pot cozy to retain heat.

For both:

Serve on tortillas and roll up.

Serves 1.


If you are out for the night or in cooler temperatures, you can carry individually wrapped cheese sticks to use instead. Dice up while boiling water and toss in with the dry ingredients. In larger grocery stores you can find pepper jacl, cheddar and more with the mozzarella ones. 1 or 2 work well.
