Nothing beats a 2-ingredient recipe that requires almost no work! This recipe for No-Fork BBQ-D Pork comes together easily so that you can enjoy a fun and unique meal in no time at all. To make this easy hand pies recipe, all you need to do is stuff store-bought pie dough with prepared or leftover BBQ pulled pork. The hand pies are then baked in the oven until the crust is golden brown and the saucy pulled pork is hot and bubbly. These lazy pulled pork hand pies make for a delicious and savory treat.


  • 2 cups leftover or prepared BBQ pulled pork
  • 2 packages refrigerated pie crust (4 sheets of pie crust total)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons water, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

  2. Allow the pie crusts to come to room temperature for 15 minutes before using. Using a 4-inch round biscuit cutter, mug, or bowl, cut out rounds from the pie crust. If using a mug or bowl, do so by tracing around the mug or bowl with a paring knife. Each crust should yield 4 rounds, with scraps leftover. Place two tablespoons of water in a small bowl near your work surface.

  3. Place a heaping tablespoon of the BBQ pulled pork in the center of each pie crust round. Trace the edge of each round with a little bit of water before folding to create a half-moon shape. Press the edges together to seal, removing the air. Use a fork to crimp the edges of the hand pies. If the edge of the pie is jagged, use a paring knife to clean it up.

  4. Continue to use this method to make 16 hand pies. Place 8 hand pies on each baking sheet.

  5. Combine the egg with one tablespoon of water to make an egg wash. Using a pastry brush, brush a little egg wash on each of the pies.

  6. Bake the pies one baking sheet at a time for about 16 minutes, or until golden brown, rotating the baking sheet halfway through baking. Cool for five minutes before serving.


If desired, you may make this recipe with homemade pie dough.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I would love these! It's so easy to get tired of pulled pork, in my opinion, so this would liven it up a bit. And how convenient that this recipe uses store-bought pie crust!

Prime Publishing Marketing Analyst These smelled amazing in the Test Kitchen, and tasted just as good! The flavors are simple and perfect for summer. And much less messy than a regular, sloppy pulled pork sandwich!
