Slow cooker pulled pork

slow cooker pulled pork asian

I have been wanting to come up with a pulled pork recipe made in the slow cooker for some time now. This is such a tasty recipe, with a hint of Asian flavour to it. Friends have already cooked the dish and it has been a hit with their family.

While it is cooked in the slow cooker, it is really worth taking the time to brown the pork first and frying up the spices first to give the dish a more intense flavour.

The slow cooker pulled pork goes beautifully as a slider – in a bread roll with Asian coleslaw. For those of use who prefer to not eat bread, lettuce cups work well!

Recipe type: Slow cooker
Ingredients:
  • 2kg boneless leg of pork (you could use shoulder if you like)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 large piece of ginger (about 5 cms)
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
  • 350 mls passata
Method:
  1. Prepare garlic for crushing and finely grate ginger and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large frying pan on a medium high heat and then add the pork. Brown the pork on all sides, then remove and add to the slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger and spices to the pan and reduce to a low heat stirring constantly.
  4. Add the passata and tamari soy sauce to the pan and bring to the boil. Reduce the temperature, stir for a minute or two and then pour over the pork in the slow cooker.
  5. Set to cook on high 4 - 5 hours or low for 8 - 10 hours. The meat should fall apart easily once cooked.
  6. Remove the meat from the slow cooker, place in a large serving tray and cover with foil.
  7. Pour the marinade from the slow cooker into a saucepan and heat on a medium high heat until it reduces slightly.
  8. Pull apart the meat (remove any fatty pieces) then pour over some of the marinade - as much or as little as you like. Serve!

    Hi Nicole, I am having problems with the app. Each time I access the recipes, a message pops up to say it’s updating meals.

    I cooked Sarah Wilson’s slow cooker pulled pork for dinner last night – perfect after being out in the afternoon at the footy! We ate it with cauliflower cream and steamed brocollini. Delicious!
