Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork for Large Gatherings



How to make the best pulled pork that’s gluten free in a slow cooker for 16+ people and look like a star in the kitchen at your next large gathering.

This is a super easy recipe from a friend of mine.

It’s cooked in a slow cooker which leaves you free to enjoy your party and not be in the kitchen all day.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe.


But this is too good not to post.


I’m always having to call her to get the recipe, so now it’s here for next time.


Ronnie’s Super Easy Pulled Pork in the slow cooker

Serves 16  (with leftovers)

Pulled pork Rub

4 tbs Brown sugar

4 tbs Smokey paprika

4 tbs dry mustard

Pinch Salt and pepper

1 tsp cayenne pepper


Slow cook the Pork

4kg Pork Shoulder

375mL apple cider vinegar

1 L chicken stock



1 cup apple cider vinegar

1 cup tomato sauce

1 cup water

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt chilli flakes or cayenne


To make:

Make the rub, combine, sugar, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper and cayenne pepper together. Rub all over the pork and leave in the fridge overnight.(or at least a couple of hours)

Slow cook:

Place the pork in a large slow cooker, with apple cider vinegar, and stock, enough to cover the meat. Cook on high for 6 hours or until the meat breaks apart. Turn a few times during cooking.

Make the sauce:

Mix all the ingredients tougher in a saucepan, stir over low heat. Season to taste.

To serve:

Pull the pork apart with 2 forks, then pour  3/4 of the sauce through the meat.

Serve remainder of the sauce on the side.

You can also try Sweet Baby Rays BBQ as a “no cook” option.

Serve with dinner rolls and coleslaw.

Then let everyone help themselves.

(Perfect when you are hosting a large party)


I also serve it with this Cabbage salad with Wafu Dressing, it’s fresh and light, but regular old coleslaw also does the trick. (pictured here)




I made pulled pork when we went to Yamba in the holidays. (Using my cheat’s option.)

Yamba is going to be our new sea change.

You’ll find us here soon,

fishing and pumping for yabbies.


Stopping to enjoy all the simple things more often.

Oh… and maybe eating a prawn or two.




We’ll be missing all our favourite ones in Sydney though…

more than words can say. x


We had a family goodbye party last weekend…

Pulled pork was the star and everyone bought the rolls and the coleslaw etc, it was perfect.




What’s your easy dish to make for large gatherings when you don’t want to be in the kitchen all day or spend a lot of money.



Have a great weekend guys,



Live with Love,

  1. I love pulled pork on a bun like this. I haven’t made it in a while so I might add it to my slow cooker pinterest board to make again.
    We love camping in Yamba – top spot!

      Yes definately do, it’s just too good to not make. I can’t wait to get settled in up there. Thanks for dropping by lovely lady. x

    Pulled pork seems to be all the range these days and I must say it does sound delicious. I’ve just never been a pork fan sadly – so that means my kids and hubby are pork deprived! Cute printable though xxx

    • Sarah says:

      Hi Robyn, thanks for dropping by, I wasn’t a fan a while back, but only because I hadn’t tried it, now it’s a favourite.

  3. I’ve never made pulled pork before although I really love it. It’s lovely to ‘see’ you again, thanks for linking up with us for Fabulous Foodie Fridays and I hope you have a great weekend x

  5. I am almost tempted to roll a big plate of that and then stab myself with an epi-pen lol. It was awesome to catch up with you yesterday lovely. It really was xx

    Yamba has the best prawns ever. Say hi to the pelicans by the fish coop for me they are some of the cheekiest I’ve ever met. One pecked Gordon on the bum, it was hilarious. This pork looks so good. Good luck with the move and so good to see you before you left x

    • Sarah says:

      Lovely to see you too, yes, I agree about the prawns and will say hi to those pelicans for you.
      The pork is such a good meal to make for a large crowd. Perhaps we’ll have prawn entree, now we are up there.

  7. We just got back from Yamba – what a gorgeous spot to call home! This pork looks the bomb. As soon as summer has set and the slow cooker is aired, I’m totally going to try this! Happy new home! xx
