Slow cooked pulled pork

Serves 6
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 8-10 hours

One of the best things you can do with pork in a slow cooker is making a big batch of pulled pork from a whole shoulder or leg roast. Slow cooked with tomatoes, chillies and spices, pulled pork can be used for a range of lunches throughout the week such as tacos, nachos, sandwiches, pizzas, salads or loaded fries!



  • 1.5kg whole pork shoulder or leg roast
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt to taste

  1. Mix together the smoked paprika, ground cumin, pepper, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl to create a spice rub.
  2. Rub the spice mixture evenly over the pork shoulder, massaging it into the meat.
  3. Place the sliced onion and minced garlic in the bottom of your slow cooker. Then place the seasoned pork shoulder on top of the onions and garlic.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the chicken or vegetable broth, apple cider vinegar, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour this mixture over the pork shoulder.
  5. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 8-10 hours, or until the pork is very tender and easily pulls apart with a fork.
  6. Once the pork is cooked, remove it from the slow cooker and place it on a cutting board. Use two forks to shred the meat into bite-sized pieces.
  7. Return the shredded pork to the slow cooker and toss it with the cooking liquid to coat evenly.

To serve

Serve the pulled pork on hamburger buns with coleslaw, topped with additional sauce if desired.


If you prefer a thicker sauce, after step 6, transfer the cooking liquid from the slow cooker to a saucepan and simmer it on the stove over medium heat until it reduces and thickens slightly.
