Cheale Meats – Favourite BBQ Slow Cooked Shredded Pork Shoulder

This really is a delicious recipe – perfect for the whole family and especially good for parties!

Our slow cooked pork shoulder is succulent and super tasty! It has a wow factor but is actually pretty simple to prepare. A slow cooker is perfect but if you don’t have one you can just pop it in a cast iron pan on low in the oven (with the lid on).

We recommend to serve 4-6 hungry people, get a 4kg pork shoulder joint.

For the rub:

  • 1 x tsp mustard powder
  • 1 x tsp onion powder
  • 1 x tsp garlic powder 
  • 2 x tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 x tbsp muscavado sugar  
  • salt and pepper

Additional ingredients:

  • BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water

Rub your pork shoulder with the spice rub and set aside. Place 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup of water in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the pork shoulder in carefully and cook on low for around 6 hours.

Take the pork shoulder out and shred the meat with a fork.

Skim the fat from the juices in the bottom of the slow cooker and return the shredded meat with your favourite BBQ sauce. Cook on low for another 1/2 an hour until it is bubbling and reduced down a little.

Serve with your favourite sides! We love coleslaw, buns and chips. It is also great piled high on nachos with jalapenos and mexican cheese.
