BBQ Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker

Autumn is creeping into Winter which brings with it the long dark nights and a chill in the air. It's the perfect time of year to use those slow cooker recipes that get neglected through the Summer for hearty evening meals to warm you up after a day out in the cold (and that importantly, can be left to cook through the day while you get on with other things). I recently gave Barbecue Pulled Pork a go, which I served in brioche rolls with caramelised red onions - fuss-free and a real winter warmer. Enjoy it on a crispy oven baked potato or in a bun with chunky potato or sweet potato wedges on the side.


1kg Pork Joint
500ml bottle of Coca-Cola (regular)
300ml BBQ sauce (I used a Jack Daniels glaze)
Brioche rolls / Baking Potatoes

  • Place the pork joint in your slow cooker and pour the Coca-Cola over the top.
  • Select 'low' and leave to cook for at least five hours.
  • When it is cooked, remove from the slow cooker on to a plate and use two forks to 'pull' the meat into shreds.
  • Put the shredded pork back in to the slow cooker and add the barbecue sauce, and cook for a further hour on a high setting.
  • Serve in brioche rolls with caramelised onions, or a garnish of your choice - or on top of an oven baked potato (with lots of cheese and sour cream!)
