Slimming World's slow cooked pulled pork is succulent, tender, so moreish.

Although the cooking time for this Slimming World recipe is long (8-12 hours), it's actually really simple to make. You only need to bubble the marinade ingredients briefly, and sear the pork quickly before you start, then it's simply a case of leaving them to cook slowly. Eight hours is enough, but if you can leave it cooking for the maximum of twelve hours, we'd recommend that because it means you get the tenderest, meltingly soft results, with all the flavours fully infused. Serve in burger buns with salad, and healthy chips if you like too. This recipe serves 4, but you can use a larger piece of pork if you want to have extra portions or leftovers. 


  • 1.5-2kg pork shoulder, all visible fat removed
  • 500g passata
  • 5 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 tbsp sweetener
  • 60g steamed green beans
  • Wholemeal rolls, to serve




  1. In a small bowl, mix the passata, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, mustard powder, garlic, sweetener and seasoning.
  2. Transfer to a small pan and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
  3. Meanwhile, trim and remove all visible fat from the pork and sear all sides in a hot frying pan. Transfer to a slow cooker coat with the sauce and cook for 8-12 hours on the medium setting.
  4. Remove the pork from the slow cooker and place on a cutting board. Allow the meat to cool for approximately 15 minutes, then shred into bite-sized pieces using two forks.
  5. Remove the sauce from the pan and set aside to drizzle on the meat later.
  6. Serve with a dollop of sauce, steamed green beans and a wholemeal roll.
