Recipe Directions

Cut the mushrooms in half crosswise. Grate lengthwise either with a hand grater (large holes) or in your FP using the grating plate. It will come out looking like grated mozzarella cheese.
Spread grated mushroom on dehydrator trays and dry for several hours, til it’s paper weight and a little crunchy. (I did it overnight)
To make the barbecue sauce, combine the rest of the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Season to taste. If you don’t care for this recipe, any raw BBQ sauce recipe will do.
Add the sauce to the dried mushrooms and allow them to absorb the liquid for an hour or so. Eventually the shredded mushroom will take on a very convincing barbecued pulled pork texture…
Spread raw, sprouted dijon mustard on a slice of bread, and pile ‘meat’ on top of that.

Nanamensah's Thoughts

Trumpet Mushrooms are large, meaty and tough. They shred lengthwise like string cheese. They’re perfect for creating a chewy, meat-like texture. This tastes authentic. You could expand on this idea to make a convincing ‘carne asada’.

Pulled 'Pork'
5
5 out of 5

Ok, I just made this (with a raw bbq sauce recipe found elsewhere) and it is crazy how much the mushrooms take on the personality of meat. It got stuck in my teeth the way pulled pork used to and the sauce ended up on my shirt! Awesome! Exactly how I remember it! Brilliant mushroom idea! I'm definitely going to play with this idea! Thanks for the recipe.

I really liked the texture of this, but I didn't really like the BBQ sauce. I will be making this again as soon as I find another BBQ sauce recipe. The dehydrating trumpet mushrooms made my house smell wonderful. Thank you for posting this recipe!

I live in a rural area and don't have ready access to trumpet mushrooms, and I wanted something I could possibly grow in my garden for this recipe. I decided to try eggplant. I peeled it, sliced it about 1/8" thick, and dehydrated it in my dehydrator. Then when I want "pulled pork", I just tear it into shreds and marinate it in a good raw barbeque sauce for several hours or overnight. It was delicious! Try serving it with cole slaw on the side......

name of the recipe threw me off.
I was at first like yuck when I saw the title.
Then happy to see it had no pork in it.

I live in La Mesa but I think Santee is considered East county too. I know it isn't far from here. I'd soooo love to have a local potluck group! I have a beautiful meeting room available.
Hey I'd forgot about 99 Ranch! I used to go to one when I lived in Orange County.

randommara, They sell coconuts for anywhere between $6 and $9 for a box of 9, depending on how fast they need to move them. Check each coconut to make sure the bottom isn't squishy, though. I also buy seaweed, miso, and other fun Asian stuff there. Here's the address:
99 Ranch Market
7330 Clairemont Mesa Blvd
San Diego, CA 92111
Where in East County? We might be moving to Santee in a month! Raw potluck, anyone?

Celery seed is the main ingredient in celery salt. Buy the whole seed and grind it in a coffee grinder or give it a bash in a mortar and pestle. It has a really nice aroma and flavour.

Caleb, celery seed is commonly found in any supermarket, with all the herbs. You could also use a few tablespoons of diced celery instead. As for a good sub for trumpet mushrooms, maybe you could try grating button, portabelo or crimini mushrooms? I don't know what the effect would be but its worth a shot.

What is celery seed? Never heard of it or seen it. Heck, don't know that I have even seen a trumpet mushroom? What is a good substitute?

I don't think you'd be able to get the shredded/pulled effect with any other type of mushroom. But the flavor would be there! But then again, I've never tried grating button mushrooms. Try it! I get my trumpet mushrooms at the big Asian Supermarket here in San Diego.

HOLY GEEZ!! This looks soooo good! I just looked up trumpet mushrooms and I don't think I've ever seen them in a local store. Do you think this would work with regular button mushrooms or criminis (baby portabelos)?
