Slow Cooker: Sweet Pulled Pork Recipe

This was a hit meal with my friend Bernie’s teen kids. The leftovers make for yummy lunches too.



1.5kg shoulder pork (The shoulder is best for slow cooking as it shreds best. It is also a sweet cut of meat)

500g bbq sauce

300ml Coke or Cola (use caffeine free varieties if desired)

1 brown onion 


  1. Slice onion and place in the base of the slow cooker.
  2. Put pork on top of the onions. Don’t try take the fat off yet, wait till it’s cooked, it’s much easier and just falls away from the meat.
  3. Combine the bbq sauce and coke in a bowl and stir to combine
  4. Pour liquid over the pork
  5. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  6. Remove pork from the slow cooker and discard as much fat as you can. Using 2 forks, shred the meat.
  7. Return as much liquid as you’d like to the shredded meat. Your shredded meat is now ready to use!

Bernie likes collecting the eggs from her sweet chickens in the morning and snuggling with two cute dogs on the sofa in the evening. In between, you’ll find her loving her 1 husband and 3 kids, baking for craft stalls, creating outfits for small animals, teaching kids with special needs and making her friends laugh. She sometimes does the washing too.
