Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is a common southern American dish. It is traditionally cooked over a fire, but more commonly in a slow cooker these days.  Try this recipe on a bun with some coleslaw, or on its own with some side dishes.  It is a great dish to make for a large group or ahead of time if you have a busy week ahead.

Serves: 12

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 8 hrs

What You Need:

•14 oz. (400g) can diced tomatoes 

•1 tbsp. chili powder 

•1 tsp. cumin 

•1 tsp. salt 

•1 tsp. chipotle chili paste 

•1 tsp. garlic powder 

•½ tsp. onion powder 

•⅓ cup (80ml) apple cider vinegar 

•⅓ cup (113g) honey 

•2.6 lb. (1.2kg) pork shoulder 

What You Need To Do:

Place all ingredients except the pork into the base of your slow cooker and stir until well combined. Add in the pork shoulder and turn a few times to coat the pork thoroughly in the sauce. Cook on the low setting of your slow cooker for 8 hours. 

Once cooked, place pork shoulder in a bowl. Remove and discard the fat using tongs, then shred the meat using two forks. 

Add cooking juices to the shredded pork, according to preference. Or simply return the pork to the slow cooker and mix well.  

Once cooled the pork can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
