Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is incredibly easy to make. Spiced with paprika and chipotle, it is oh-so simple, yet oh-so delicious!
I’ll admit, I had never had pulled pork before tonight. It’s because I have been a vegetarian for the past 8 years (up until 7 months ago) and my family never made it when I was young. I have been backpacking in America twice, and it was pulled pork that tempted me to eat meat so often whilst I was there. It just looked so tender and succulent and when covered in sauce, even more appealing.
So, when I started eating meat again, pulled pork was one of the first things I wanted to make. I looked for some recipes for inspiration, but saw that a lot of them used loads of ketchup and brown sugar, or called for a store bought BBQ sauce. So tonight I experimented with making pulled pork that didn’t have many ingredients and was much healthier than most, but didn’t sacrifice on taste and succeeded.
I used a slow cooker for mine, but if you don’t have one, you can cook it in the oven on low (120C/230F) for 4-5 hours.
