Pulled Pork Philly

Pulled Pork Philly Sandwich - SimplyGloria.com  Also, made with bacon, 3 different cheeses and a lot goodness!

Have you cooked a big pork roast and ended up with some for leftovers?  And, then just didn’t know what to do with it?

  You can create the Pulled Pork Philly (ta-da!) with your already cooked pork roast. You could even put it inside a warm tortilla, or on a slice of toasted baguette.  I’ve even made this dish for the whole neighborhood party as sliders…on tiny sized buns!

The pork is combined with crispy bacon, red peppers, red and spring onions and 4 different cheeses to melt into the best of all gooey-ness!

 This is the perfect meal transferred from any leftover pork roast!  It’s super easy to throw together ahead of time.  And, when you’re ready, put in the oven for about 40 minutes to do it’s thing!

Ingredients for Pulled Pork Philly

First, you’ll need your main ingredient:  some pulled pork.  (Note:  if you happen to grill a full pork roast anytime soon…you have got to put some aside for this dish– it’s absolutely amazing with the smoke taste!)

Ingredients for Pulled Pork Phillys

Spray some non-stick cooking spray into your 2 quart baking dish.


Begin layering with half of all of your ingredients.

This is the order of layering:  red onions, red bell peppers, shredded pulled pork, bacon, cream cheese, Parmesan, mozzarella, provolone (tear into pieces), spring onions, and crushed red pepper flakes.

 The crushed red peppers are optional.  It gives it just a little kick and balances with all the cheeses.

 Then, repeat with your second and final layer with the rest of the ingredients.


It may be stacked pretty high, but it will all lay down once it’s been in the oven to let the cheeses melt.


Cover with aluminum foil.  *Tip:  Spray some non stick spray on the inside of the foil touching the cheeses– to prevent sticking.  Put in oven at a preheated 375 degrees for 30 minutes.  Leave in oven, take off cover and bake for an additional 10 minutes.  When it’s all finished, let it rest for about 5 minutes before serving onto buns.

      You’re so funny, Tric! The boys think this is such a treat to have… that my Levi will even come home to visit his momma if I make it! Hope you’re having a fun friday so far!

    • says

      Sonali, I always have to disguise and be creative with all of our leftovers. Or my boys will not even eat anything. Have a happy Saturday!

    • says

      Hi Cindy! You’re so right…Yes, all the dads in town would ask me for the recipe! Have a happy weekend…hope you’re having great weather to enjoy!

    • says

      Well, I’ve never been anywhere to really try a “real” Philly…so, of course, I decided to do a take on one with pulled pork…my fav meat! (=

  1. says

    This looks like the perfect sandwich!!!!! The pulled pork looks absolutely delicious with all the other ingredients you added, looks amazing!!!

    • says

      Thank you so much, Maria! It’s funny how I have all of these ingredients with the pulled pork…but it all just balances together with love! (=

  2. says

    it’s your fault if my keyboard doesn’t work anymore since I just drooled all over it!!!!!! this looks SOOOO yummy! Wish I’d seen this before I cooked a pork roast this weekend and smothered it in BBQ sauce.

    • says

      You’re so funny, Becky! Now you’ll have to make another pork roast really soon! (My boys still drown this in bbq sauce! …and I made this because I was tired of the same old thing with pulled pork sandwiches.) Hope you enjoy! I’d love to hear how your family likes this when you make it!

    Hi Gloria! Just read your ‘about’ and I still can’t believe that you have a 21 year old son (I swear you look my age! But… uh… that would mean you had your son at 8 years old which is highly unlikely!!). Anyway, back to the pulled pork sandwiches. WOW. All of that cheesy goodness plus (I would use italics if I could) pulled pork AND bacon?? Amazing. I reckon my husband would drive for two days to get a dish of this! Thanks for sharing this recipe. It’s a privilege to read some little snapshots into your family life – you’re gorgeous! xx

  4. Jen says

    I just made this for dinner tonight AND IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I loved the creamy gooey ness the cream cheese adds, I’m so full from one hoagie but I really want another one because it’s just so good!!! LOL I’ll be making this again. Thank you!

    • says

      Jen, I am so happy you loved this recipe! It truly is my boys’ most requested meal… and there’s never any leftover. I know how you feel when you are too full to eat another one– I always find myself “nibbling” out of the pan with a fork! Thanks so much for your feedback. You made my whole night! xo

    Wow, this was really delicious. And so super easy, too. I think I might even try it sometime with shredded chicken. I seem to more often have that, and I don’t think I can wait until the next time I have shredded pork to eat this again. Thanks!!

  6. Julie says

    The picture looks like the dish is a 9×13, not an 8×8 which is a 2 quart..what size dish is used with all these ingredients? TY

    • says

      My dish is a little smaller than the 9×13. The only difference when you put all your layers in the 9×13, it will just need to bake for a few less minutes. And, I’ve also put it all in a square 8×8 and cooked it for a little longer to get heated all the way through. I hope you find this dish to be a big hit as much as our family does! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  7. Katie B says

    Thank you for sharing your recipe. I made this for dinner tonight. It was quick, easy, and a new favorite recipe! We ate it on top of half of a whole grain English muffin and a fresh slice of tomato. It was a perfect Monday night dinner!!!

  8. Jinnie says

    Made this last night. Awesome!!!!!! Think I might try it with any leftover meat, like thanksgiving turkey, or a roast chicken. Thank you for sharing. We will be enjoying this again and again.

  9. Sandy says

    Made this last night from a leftover pork loin & served on brioche buns. It was amazing! Thanks for sharing this recipe. ❤

    I wanted to share that I made these up I had extra so I decided to throw some in the freezer. It thawed and reheated beautifully.
