Low carb pulled pork in the crockpot! This simple recipe is perfectly seasoned and cooks with a can of beer in the slow cooker.
I mentioned a few days ago that my husband bought me a smoker for my birthday this year.
And here I am…showing you how to make pulled pork in a crockpot. Ha! It’s just two things – 1. I’m not sure how many of you actually have a smoker and would want a recipe for that (tell me if you do!) and 2. crockpot pulled pork is actually super delicious and so dang easy.
So today you get this keto pulled pork in the slow cooker! Lucky you!
Obviously, traditional sandwich buns are out for serving this pork if you’re low carb, so get creative!
How to make keto pulled pork:
In the past, I’ve also made BBQ pulled pork and used a rub full of sugar to coat the pork. Not anymore!
The seasoning for this pulled pork is seriously SO good and it’s so much more versatile because it’s not sweet. You can add your favorite sauce if you want to sweeten things up or you can use the pork in other ways.
Start by placing your boneless pork shoulder in a crockpot.
Stir together some cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, parsley, and paprika and rub it all over the pork to coat.
Pour your favorite low carb beer into the bottom of the slow cooker. This doesn’t have a strong beer flavor at all, but feel free to use chicken broth if you prefer.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. The meat is done when it easily shreds apart with a fork.
Shred the meat and stir it around in the juices in the bottom of the slow cooker before serving.
We like this pulled pork topped with my mustard BBQ sauce.
Seriously, this keto pulled pork is a total favorite in my house. It’s seasoned really well and the tangy mustard BBQ sauce works perfectly with the richness of the pork.
If you haven’t made pulled pork in the crockpot before, you need to give it a try!
