Super easy slow cooker pulled pork in a rich, smoky BBQ sauce with veggies – pile into brioche rolls for an easy family dinner.
Our succulent slow cooker pulled pork is really easy to make – just 10 minutes preparation then leave the slow cooker to do it’s thing.
It’s a great meal idea for a Saturday night because it’s just so easy, you can put it in the slow cooker in the morning, go off and do Saturday and come home to a lovely dinner that’s ready to eat!
I just shred the BBQ pork and then add some side dishes like potato wedges, coleslaw and corn cobs and let everyone just help themselves.

How to make slow cooker pulled pork
You are just going to LOVE how super easy this dinner recipe is to throw together!
I add a layer of sliced onions and peppers in the bottom of the slow cooker pan, then nestle the pork shoulder on top of them.
I then pour over the coke, BBQ sauce and sprinkle over some smoked paprika, garlic powder and salt.
Then cook on low for around 8-10 hours.
Then I remove the pork, peel off any fatty layer and then shred using two forks. I thicken up the sauce in a pan on the hob.

What’s the best cut of meat for pulled pork?
I always make this recipe with boneless pork shoulder – I cook it with the fatty layer on as it keeps the meat moist and tasty, but I always remove before shredding and eating.
What kind of buns are good for pulled pork?
Our pulled pork is really tasty served with a peppery watercress salad, stuffed into a toasted brioche roll, topped with the BBQ sauce, peppers and onions from the slow cooker.
If brioche buns aren’t your thing, try burger rolls or even crusty tiger bread rolls.
