Pulled Pork Recipe In the Slow Cooker

A super simple pulled pork recipe for the slow cooker.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 10 minutes


  • 3-4 pound boneless pork roast
  • 12 ounce bottle Woodchuck Cider for a non-alcoholic version use apple juice or cider - although the alcohol cooks off
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt


  1. Place 1/2 half of the onion slices on the bottom of your slow cooker. Add the pork roast then top with the remaining onion slices and garlic cloves.
  2. Pour the Woodchuck Cider over the pork roast.
  3. Sprinkle the onion powder, chili powder and Kosher salt over the pork roast.
  4. Place the lid on your slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours (Pork should be cooked at an internal temperature of 145°). Slow and low is the key.
  5. Remove the roast from the slow cooker. Using the tines of two forks shred the meat until it is all separated. You can also use your hands to shred it, if you like to really dig in with your food!
  6. Once shredded, pour 1-2 cups juice from the slow cooker over the meat.
  7. Now season or sauce to your hearts content. People will often add barbecue sauce or other seasonings at this point depending on what they are using the pork for.
  8. Enjoy!
