A Slimming World Dinner Choice

This recipe for Syn Free BBQ Pulled Pork is one to put on your Slimming World meal plan for sure! You can add it to other recipes (watch this space for some more ideas in the coming weeks!) or serve it up with plenty of veg and some potatoes – whatever takes your fancy!

To cook this recipe you need to use either pork tenderloin or a pork shoulder joint. Tenderloin will already be trimmed of any fat, so you don’t need to worry about making it syn free, whereas pork shoulder will most likely come with a layer of fat on the outside. If you’re using the second option, you simply need to trim as much of the visible fat from the pork as you can before using it in this recipe.

All of the other ingredients used are totally syn free already so you don’t need to worry about any calculations or working out syn values. Just pop it all in the slow cooker, wait for a few hours and serve up to your delighted family and friends.

Alternatively, you can portion it out into your daily meals or Tupperware it up in the fridge or freezer to use later! If you do freeze it, simply make sure it is totally defrosted before reheating it all the way through.

How To Cook Syn Free BBQ Pulled Pork – Step by Step

This recipe for Syn Free BBQ Pulled Pork can be cooked using a slow cooker, Instant Pot (as I have done) or simply in a large pan on the stove top. The difference between the three are as follows:

  • Slow Cooker – you can leave it to cook but will need to reduce the sauce on the stove before adding it to the pulled pork
  • Stove Top – as with the slow cooker, you can leave it to cook with a lid over a low heat but you will need to check it to make sure the heat isn’t too high and you will also need to reduce the sauce in a separate pan before adding it to the pulled pork
  • Instant Pot – unlike the other two, you can use the Instant Pot to slow cook this recipe as well as reducing the sauce once you have removed the chunks of pork. This is because an Instant Pot has multiple functions, including slow cook and saute.

With all three options you simply need to transfer the BBQ Pulled Pork over to a baking tray to crisp up in the oven – although this is an optional step!

The printable recipe card and ingredients for this recipe can be found at the end of this post. Here are the step by step instructions…

Step One

To season the pork, mix the spices together and then rub them all over the pork. Leave to marinate if you can, or use straight away if you can’t. The longer you marinate the pork, the more the flavour will sink into the meat.

Step Two

Add the sliced onions and parsley into your Instant Pot/Slow Cooker/Sauce pan.

Step Three

Add your spiced pork along with the passata, garlic, tomato puree, water, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and all of the other spices.

Mix together so everything is coated.

Step Four

Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 5-6 hours. Once done, your pork should be ready to fall apart.

Step Five

Once your pork is cooked, remove it from the Instant Pot/Slow Cooker/Saucepan and put it in a large baking tray.

Step Six

Reduce the remaining sauce until it has thickened. This can be done in the Instant Pot on ‘Saute’ mode or in a pan on the stove.

Step Seven

Meanwhile, use two forks or bear claws to shred the cooked pork in the baking tray. You can buy bear claws on Amazon, and they make making pulled meat recipes so much easier!
