This Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is easy to make, delicious and can be used as a base for so many yummy family recipes.

Pulled pork is such a crowd pleaser, think pulled pork sliders, loaded nachos and so much more.

What’s great about this Pulled Pork recipe, is that you only need a few ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen.

This recipe calls for spices such as paprika and cumin, to give your pork flavour and a bit of a kick. Combine those flavours with some sweet bbq sauce and mustard, and the job is almost done.

Perfect for a mid-week dinner, simply marinate the pork then pop it in the oven, slow-cooker or warming drawer (if suitable for low-temperature cooking) and let it do its thing for 6 hours. When you take the pork out of the oven, the result is beautifully pulled-apart pork that’s so tender you can easily shred it with a fork.

Add the juices all over your shredded meat, to return all the flavours that the pork was cooking in, and keep the meat soft and juicy.

What we love about Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is how versatile it is. You can use it for so many recipes, give it to the family for dinner, and then re-use it for leftovers the next day, or freeze your pork to make mid week meals even easier.
