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 leftovers as 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 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
- 1.8kg boneless pork shoulder
- 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.
Either eat straight away or add the meat back to the BBQ sauce for a deeper flavour.
