Slow cooker shredded pork

    6 hours 10 min

    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)

    • 950ml water, to cover

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:6hr  ›  Ready in:6hr10min 

    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.

    Great flavour  -  14 Oct 2013


    This was a great recipe, I did change one thing instead of covering with water I added a 12 oz bottle of beer (modelo), and no water. Served on toasted buns with provolone cheese, avacado slices and shredded cabbage. Delicious!!!  -  30 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It was AWESOME!!! Didn't change a thing except my grocery store did not have abodo sauce so I bought of canned chipotles in abodo sauce. I spooned the sauce in and threw away the chipotles. We had family over, everyone including my husband loved it!!! My favorite recipe from this site so far. served it with corn totillas and slices of avocado and onion. YUM!  -  10 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
