Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork Recipe
Posted by nic


  • 1 boneless pork shoulder or butt roast ~ 1.5kg – 2kg in size.
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Half teaspoon ground red pepper (I think I may have left this one out?)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium green capsicum, cut into strips
  • 1 bottle barbecue sauce – approx 530ml.
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar.


  1. Trim excess fat from pork. Combine salt, cumin, paprika, black pepper and red pepper in small bowl; rub over roast.
  2. Place onion and capsicum in the slow cooker, add pork. Combine barbecue sauce and brown sugar in a bowl, then pour over meat. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 – 10 hours.
  3. The recipe says to transfer roast to a cutting board, trim any fat and pull the pork into coarse shred using 2 forks. We found that when we pulled it out of the slow cooker, it fell apart anyway!
  4. Says to serve it with the sauce on some tortilla wraps or over rice. So we did both, rice on the wraps with the pork, sauce and some capsicum on top, and rolled them up.

Slow Cooker Pork Spare Ribs with Plum Sauce
Posted by Cailin


  • 1/3 cup plum jam – I put up to 1/2 cup
  • 2 chicken stock cubes
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tsp soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 1 clove, or 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Ribs of course – I cut them up individually to get them really well coated in the delicious saucy marinade.


These cooked quite quickly, about 4 hours. To get them sticky pop them in a hot oven for about 10 minutes, but they don’t necessarily need it!

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Pork Recipe

Marinade for Pork

  • 2 tbsp Soya Sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp dry sherry


  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed (or 2tsp crushed garlic)
  • 1 tin of pineapple (keep JUICE)
  • 1 Red Capsicum Sliced
  • 1 Green Capsicum Sliced
  • 1 Stick Celery Chopped
  • Any Asian style veggies, eg. Bok Choy, Snow Peas…
  • 500g-1kg cubed pork (depending on how much meat you like)


  • 1 tbsp Corn Flour
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp brown vinegar/sherry
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • Leftover marinade


  1. Put Meat and Marinade together into container and store in the fridge whilst preparing veggies. This will tenderise the meat as well as give it extra flavour and lock in some of the juices.
  2. Prepare veggies and chuck into a bowl. KEEP PINEAPPLE SEPARATE along with its juice.
  3. After 20mins, take our Pork from the fridge and add to SC. If some of the marinade gets in, don’t stress as you will need some liquid in there.
  4. Add the veggies (NOT THE PINEAPPLE)
  5. Add the sauce but keep the PINEAPPLE AND JUICE OUT.
  6. Turn onto Auto cook for about 6-8hours, even Low for a bit longer.
  7. If you are having Bok Choy with it, add it when you do the following last step as Bok Choy is best cooked for less time.
  8. When it has an hour to go, add Pineapple pieces and Juice and stir through. Cook for a further 1 hour on LOW setting as not to make pineapple mushy.
  9. Serve with Rice or Noodles.

Pork w/ Garlic, White Wine & Fennel Seeds
Posted by iluvella

I cut large pieces of potato and sweet potato and onion and scattered them on the bottom of the slow cooker. Placed the pork steaks on top of veg. Sliced 4 cloves of garlic, diced 80g butter and scattered these over the pork. Sprinkled a tsp of fennel seeds, sea salt and cracked pepper also over pork. Poured 2/3 cup chicken stock and 2/3 cup dry white wine around pork. Put on low for about 4-5 hrs. Added beans and button mushrooms about 30mins before serving.

Slow Baked Pork

With a boned leg or shoulder piece (whatever you prefer) cut off the rind (you can cook the rind in the oven for crackling if you like!). Place some handfuls of fresh herbs in the slow cooker (e.g. thyme, lemon thyme, rosemary, oregano) and add 3-4 garlic cloves (unpeeled is okay). Add the pork, browned if you like but not essential. Add around 1/4 cup of liquid, either water or chicken stock, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook on auto for around 8 hours and the meat comes apart in chunks.

If you like, you can remove the herb stalks and squeeze the garlic out of it’s skin, and make a delicious gravy to go over the pork.

Sweet Pork w/ Apples & Prunes – posted by Blackbird

Brown 2kg forequarter pork chops (fat trimmed) in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Transfer to plate. Add another tablespoon of oil to pan and add 3 med red onions cut into thick wedges and cook until softened. Add 4 med green apples cored and cut into quarters and toss in pan, stirring frequently until apple begins to colour. Place in bottom of SC. Add chops, 1 cup chicken stock, 250g pitted prunes and 1 tablespoon fresh sage. Cook on high 3-4 hrs or low 6-8 hours. Season to taste and serve with a sprinkle of fresh sage. (From the Sunbeam slow cooker book).

Apple Pork Chops


  • 6 pork loin chops (trimmed)
  • 6 tart apples, cored and thickly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • Salt to taste


  1. Brown chops sprinkle with salt during browning.
  2. Place into the slow cooker, combining remaining ingredients and pour over chops.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-9 hours depending on your slow cooker. The apples break down to form most of the juice/sauce, making for a yummy casserole as the meat comes away from the bone.
