Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is a slow cooked barbecue pork that is often found in the US, but I've never seen in Singapore. It is delicious, because its been cooked for a long time at low temperatures that the meat becomes so tender, it is easily 'pulled' into tiny shreds.


  • 2 to 3 pound pork roast
  • 1 large onion (sliced)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon fennel
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 bottle of barbecue sauce

Put the sliced onion in the slow cooker. Add water to the onions.

Rub the pork roast with the cumin, coriander, fennel, chili powder, paprika and salt. Place the pork roast on the sliced onions in the slow cooker. Set the slow cooker on low and let it cook for 8-10 hours. Do not open the cover of the slow cooker. Just wait.

After 8-10 hours, remove the broth, keeping around 1/2 to 1 cup of broth in the pot. 'Pull' the pork roast into shreds and add the barbecue sauce.

Eat the pulled pork in a bun, in a burrito, in a taco or over rice. Delicious!
