I love my slow cooker. My lovely sister bought it for me a number of months ago and it really changed how we prepare and cook our meals.
After trialling a few different recipes, I started to get a bit more adventurous and have found one of my favourite dishes from the slow cooker so far is pulled pork.
I use a shoulder joint of pork, which is quite a cheap cut. Cooking it in a slow cooker, makes it so tender and the BBQ sauce gives it a great tang!
We’ve been making this slow cooker pulled pork recipe for some time, both as a tasty dinner and using the left overs a quick and easy lunch.
This pulled pork recipe is so easy to make – it probably takes me no more than 10 minutes in total to prepare the marinade and pull the pork after it’s cooked! There is way too much for a dinner for the four of us, but it keeps well covered in the fridge for a few days.
Pulled pork in the slow cooker
- 4 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 (small) tbsp white wine vinegar
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- Shoulder of Pork
- In a bowl, mix in the marinade ingredients. Add the pork joint and make sure it's coated in the marinade. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
- In the morning, put the pork and marinade into a slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.
- Once cooked, remove any fat and pull the meat apart with forks.
For those of you who don’t have a slow cooker, I really suggest that it’d a good idea to get one. It’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that the cooker makes food taste delicious with such a small amount of effort.
