Pulled Pork Salad

Slow cooked barbecue pulled pork salad

Christopher: Pulled pork is a great way to make a cheap cut of meat into a tender delight and all it takes is a mere eight hours of cooking. My tip would be prepare the sauce and pork the night before and leave covered in the fridge. All you’ve got to do is turn on the slow cooker in the morning then go about your day. Pulled pork can be a little heavy so we’ve done it with a light salad – it makes a perfect edition to the BBQ table 🙂

This pulled pork salad takes: 8 hours in the slow cooker
