About this recipe: This shredded pork dish is not only easy, but it's super-delicious too! A pork shoulder joint is rubbed with Cajun seasoning and then cooked in a slow cooker with peperoncini, adobo sauce, onion, garlic and coriander. Serve with rice, tortillas or mashed potatoes. It also does wonders as a sandwich filler with caramelised onions.


Serves: 10 

  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1 (1.35kg) pork shoulder joint
  • 1 (290g) peperoncini, undrained or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce (from tinned chipotle chillies)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 25g fresh coriander leaves
  • 950ml water, to cover

  1. Rub the Cajun seasoning into the pork shoulder; place in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour the peperoncini with the juice and the adobo sauce over the pork. Top with the onion, garlic and coriander. Pour enough water into the slow cooker to cover the bottom half of the pork shoulder.
  2. Cook on Low until the meat begins to fall apart, 6 to 8 hours. Shred meat with two forks inside the slow cooker before serving.


Peperoncini are also known as pepperoncini. They, along with tinned chipotle chillies in adobo sauce can be found in speciality stores or online.
