How do you make pulled pork in the slow cooker?

It’s so easy! Place the pork in your slow cooker with spices rubbed on it and then slowly add the apple cider vinegar and chicken broth. Then cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 5-6 hours. I prefer to let my pork cook on low all day but if you are in a time crunch, you can cook it on high as well.Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork in the slow cooker

Can you freeze cooked pulled pork?

You sure can! In fact, this Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is a great recipe to prep ahead of time and then freeze in ziplock bags and pull out when you are ready to serve it.

You can also use leftover pulled pork for so many recipes.

  • Pulled Pork Tacos
  • Pulled Pork Enchiladas
  • Pulled Pork Sandwiches
  • Pulled Pork Taco Bowls- You can use my recipe for Turkey Taco Bowls and replace the turkey with pulled pork for a delicious and customizable meal.

One of my favorite occasions to serve pulled pork is anytime I have family over. Even though I enjoy cooking, I tend to get a little stressed when I have a house full of people.

Making pulled pork in the slow cooker takes the stress out of making sure I don’t overcook the main dish… because the longer you cook pulled pork the more tender it is! I like to get up early and get the pork in my slow cooker so it can cook all day. It marks one thing off my to-do list early!

    Do you add any additional barbecue sauce to the pork before serving? Or is it tasty enough on its own? I’m so excited to try this for company that will be arriving, since it is in the crockpot and will rid me of some of the preparation stress!

    1. I leave that up to whoever is eating it for this recipe. My boys don’t love BBQ sauce and they liked it without it 🙂
