Slow-Cooked Pulled Pork

20 MIN
8 H



  1. In a blender, purée all ingredients except the pork. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Place it in the slow cooker with the sauce. Cover and cook on low heat for about 8 hours. Alternatively, cook on high for 6 hours.
  3. Place the meat on a plate and tent with aluminum foil. Let stand 15 minutes, then shred using a fork.
  4. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the sauce to a boil and reduce until syrupy, about half the original volume. Add the meat and coat well with the sauce.


  1. Excellent!!!!

  2. The pork cooked this way comes out so juicy and tender. I used a butt cut, I followed the recipe other than that to a T. I added to the juices on the stove, half a cup of brown sugar, one extra teaspoon each salt and garlic powder and one teaspoon Liquid Smoke. Absolutely amazing addition to the sauce!!

  3. Excellent! Rather than shredding the pork and mixing it with the sauce, I served this as a roast with the jus on the side, and it was delicious. The meat was so very tender! While the pork was resting, I reduced the jus in the slow cooker on High, which worked well. I did use an extra onion, an extra clove of garlic, and I substituted an equal amount of passata for the plum tomatoes because I didn't have any canned tomatoes in the house. I will definitely be making this again!

  4. Dear Ricardo and staff. I have tried a lot of pulled pork recipes, but this one is by far the BEST. I followed the recipes to a "T" and the meat just fell apart and was perfectly seasoned. The jus was also the right consistency. Thank you for this recipe!!

  5. I just tired this recipe last night for the first time, I put it in my slow cooker and let it go all night, it is so tender and delicious and the meat really tender, my favourite recipe so far, I will certainly use it again, thank you Ricardo.

  6. I have been making (and sharing) Ricardo's pulled pork recipe for a few years. It is the best pulled pork I have ever eaten let alone cooked. Don't change a's perfect!

  7. Pretty good

  8. Recipe is disgusting. Sauce not flavorful, a bit sour, i am throwing it out and keeping the pork

  9. Delicious! The hubby loved it...the smell in the house was killing him for hours haha. Totally worth the wait. Will make this again for sure.

  10. This is an excellent, simple recipe. Not overly spicy which made it perfect for the kids in our crowd. The true testimony is that there were no leftovers.

  11. Fantastic! Guests loved it!!

  12. Excellent! First time I've ever made pulled pork! Loved it! Next time I won't reduced the sauce as much as I like more sauce. I'll make it again!

  13. Excellent flavours, and simple! If you wish to give it a smoked flavour, you can add a teaspoon of liquid smoke!

  14. Wonderful, amazing, utter perfection. Thank you Ricardo!
