About this recipe: This slow cooker pulled pork recipe is so easy to make – it probably takes me no more than 10 minutes in total to prepare the marinade and pull the pork after it’s cooked! There is way too much for a dinner for the four of us, but it keeps well covered in the fridge for a few days.

Serves: 8 

  • 4 tablespoons soya sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 small tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pork shoulder

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:8hr  ›  Extra time:8hr marinating  ›  Ready in:16hr20min 

  1. In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients, except the pork shoulder. Add the pork and make sure it's coated in the marinade. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
  2. The next morning, preheat the slow cooker to Low.
  3. Place the pork and marinade into a slow cooker and cook on Low for 8 hours.
  4. After 8 hours the pork should be very tender. Remove from the slow cooker and discard any fat. Pull the meat apart with forks and serve. Alternatively, return to the slow cooker and mix with the sauce for a deeper flavour before serving.

Pork shoulder

A 1.6kg to 2kg pork shoulder will work well for the marinade measurements given.

Did two of us for dinners and lunches for a few days, with ciabatta rolls. Pork was so tender, really simple to prepare. - 31 Oct 2015
