Recipe: Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


The Super Bowl was this past Sunday and I threw a “party” for it. Last year I ordered pizza, wings, and made nachos for myself (Yes, I was having a Super Bowl party myself).  This year I decided to attempt to make pulled pork. I’ve never made it before nor do I have a grill. Luckily my house has a slow cooker and I knew of recipes that used a slow cooker.

I went searching through Pinterest and looked at all the easy pulled pork recipes. I gathered a general idea of what to throw in and the kind of pork to use.

Since I’ve never made it before, I did a tester run before the Super Bowl. In the tester, I used the following:

  • 1/3 of a pork loin (boneless)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup of root beer (I used Mug Root Beer)
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup BBQ sauce (I used Bull’s-Eye Guinness BBQ sauce)
  • 1 onion (chopped into 4 chunks)

When it came to the Super Bowl, I changed it up a bit as I was feeding more people. This is what I used:

  • 2/3 of a pork loin (boneless)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2/3 cup of Dr. Pepper
  • 2/3 cup BBQ sauce (I used Diana®‘s Western Smokehouse)
  • 1 onion (chopped into 4 or 8 chunks)
  • chopped carrots

 

To make the pulled pork, here’s what I did:

  1. Take the pork loin and create a dry rub with the salt, pepper, and garlic. Then chop the onion into 4 cloves.pulledpork
  2. Place the onion chunks at the bottom of the slow cooker, going around the circumference of it. If you have more than one piece of pork loin and they’re stacked, place the onions at the bottom of the slow cooker and on top of the stacked pork loin pieces. You want the onion  Then throw in the carrots (They don’t need to be placed in a certain way). pulled porkpulled pork
  3. Plop the pork loin into the slow cooker and pour the BBQ sauce on top of the pork loin and also mix it into the root beer/Dr.Pepper. pulled pork
  4. Set the slow cooker on low and wait 6-8 hours.
  5. After 6-8 hours, you’ll see juice from the pork loin seep out into the soda and BBQ mixture. Take out the pork loin and start shredding it with a fork. You can use your hands or any other utensils. pulled porkpulled pork
  6. Pour out the meat juice from the slow cooker. You can keep this and re-use it for something else.
  7. Take the shredded pork and place it back into the empty slow cooker. Add in your desired amount of BBQ sauce and mix thoroughly. pulled pork
  8. Set the slow cooker back to low for about 40 minutes to an hour.
  9. Once the hour has passed, take out your pulled pork and eat! 😀

I never realized how simple it was until I made it and now I’ve done it twice! Easy peasy. Below is what I did for the Super Bowl. Made nachos and Pulled Pork sandwiches using hot dog buns (the cheapest!). Since the NBA All-Star Weekend is this coming weekend, this would be a good party food choice 😉

Want a piece of this? It's really cheesy 🍰
⠀
In 2015, I went to Sugar Marmalade went it first opened in Mississauga. I wasn't impressed with it. Four years later, my opinion hasn't changed at my second visit. Check out my quick review in my IG Stories.

It's the long weekend 🇨🇦—Let's par-tea! 🎉 ⠀
Earlier this week I finally got to try @thealley.ca in Toronto. Since it was my first visit, I decided to order the Deerioca. This drink is made with brown sugar instead of white. Make sure you mix it (Swipe ⏩) before drinking it, otherwise the brown sugar will only settle at the bottom. You also have the option of choosing regular milk or soy milk.
⠀
It wasn't bad but the brown sugar didn't give me the sweetness I'm used to. It did taste familiar to a non-bubble tea drink. But I wouldn't mind going back to try a different drink to compare to other bubble tea places.

If you have any recommendations, leave it in the comments :)

Yolks on you if you don't order the Spaghetti Carbonara from @scaddabush!
⠀
My go-to order is usually the Roasted Fennel & Sausage Fettuccine but yesterday I decided to try something different. I went for the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was delish! 😋
⠀
It was creamy and full of flavour. I also don't like bacon (Don't @ me!) but thus was bearable for me. It was a bit too oily near the bottom of the dish, so make sure you mix it well!
⠀
And if you're sharing this dish, go for the social size option—it's cheaper when splitting the bill! 😉
