I love my slow cooker, there is nothing better than coming in from work and your dinner is almost done. I’m a big fan of pulled pork and it works well in a slow cooker. I’ve also made a BBQ sauce to stir through the pork, perfect served with fresh crunchy coleslaw on a gluten free bun.




For the pulled pork:

  • 900g pork shoulder
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chilli powder
  • salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons garlic paste

For the BBQ sauce:

  • 120ml white wine vinegar
  • 20g light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • salt and pepper for seasoning

  • 1/2 small red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 small red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 125g dairy free mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chives

To Serve:
