For the pulled pork layer:

  • 2 cups pulled pork unsauced
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

For the batter:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter


For the filling:

  • Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and cook the onions until they're soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the diced bell pepper and cook an additional minute.
  • Let this mixture cool slightly, then mix it with the pulled pork and cheddar cheese.

For the batter:

  • For the cornbread, combine the flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper, and baking powder in a medium-size bowl.
  • In a second bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk together. Add the melted butter.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients.

To assemble:

  • Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish or casserole pan with cooking spray, or use a well-seasoned cast iron pan.
  • Add about half of the cornbread batter to the bottom of the baking dish. Smooth it out with an offset spatula.
  • Top with the pulled pork mixture, spreading it around in an even layer with your offset spatula. Be careful not to push it too far into the bottom cornbread layer.
  • Top with the remaining cornbread mixture and pop it into a preheated 375-F oven for about 20-25 minutes or until it is golden brown and the filling is bubbly around the edges.
  • Let cool a bit, slice, and serve!
