Pulled pork is my idea of heaven, what’s even better is Syn Free Pulled Pork with a Syn Free BBQ sauce! Just writing this is making me salivate haha! This is perfect with some Syn Free loaded potato skins and slaw.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
Pork wise, we use shoulder for this Syn Free Pulled Pork & BBQ Sauce & trim it of most of the fat. To do this make sure to use a sharp knife, and take your time. Pork Leg is fine too, just not loin. It’ll turn out too dry.
We use Schwartz Perfect Shake Classic BBQ Seasoning for this Syn Free Pulled Pork & BBQ Sauce, as most of the other BBQ seasonings now have a Syn value. The Schwartz one is Syn free.
Cooking this Syn Free Pulled Pork & BBQ Sauce

You can do this in the slow cooker, but it’ll take 4-6 hours. On a busy day I’m not usually that organised, so I use the Instant Pot in pressure cooking mode.
It means instead of 4-6 hours, cooking the pork just takes 1 hour 30 minutes! It’s crazy how easy, how fast and how little washing up accumulates when you use it. One pot wonder. My kitchen saviour.
In the summer we usually do pulled pork on the Big Green Egg, and it takes 8-10 hours but I think this year we’ll be doing it in the Instant Pot then putting the Pulled Pork in sauce into the Green Egg to smoke for an hour along side some BBQ beans. My idea of heaven.
If there are any left overs (there may not be!) freeze individual portions into freezer bags. Make sure to include juice, as this will keep the pork moist when you reheat. It’ll store in the freezer for a couple of months – if it lasts that long!
