Need an easy recipe for pulled pork? This Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork recipe is so simple, and is sure to satisfy your craving for tender pulled pork!
How do you make pulled pork in the slow cooker?
It’s so easy! Place the pork in your slow cooker with spices rubbed on it and then slowly add the apple cider vinegar and chicken broth. Then cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or on high for 5-6 hours. I prefer to let my pork cook on low all day but if you are in a time crunch, you can cook it on high as well.
Can you freeze cooked pulled pork?
You sure can! In fact, this Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork is a great recipe to prep ahead of time and then freeze in ziplock bags and pull out when you are ready to serve it.
You can also use leftover pulled pork for so many recipes.
