Pulled Pork Lasagne - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

This Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Lasagne is a mouth-watering treat for busy days. Set your meat to cook in the slow cooker all day, and then all you need to do is assemble and oven bake the lasagne when you get home. 

The recipe was inspired by a clever member of the Pinch of Nom community who used some leftovers from our Pulled Pork recipe to make a lasagne. How delicious does that sound?

We had to give it a try ourselves, although we’ve switched the pork for a slow-cooked gammon joint, to keep the calories down as much as possible. If you’d prefer, you can absolutely make this lasagne using the Pulled Pork instead!

Whichever you choose, we can guarantee that the end result will be so satisfying. Layer the BBQ-seasoned meat with our slimming-friendly white sauce and lasagne sheets, then top the whole thing with cheese and bake it until the topping is golden brown and crispy.

Perfect for batch cooking, this is a freezer-friendly recipe that’ll make you very glad to have leftovers for a rainy day! 

If you don’t have a slow cooker, this recipe can also be made in your oven or in your Instant Pot, so it’s ready on a schedule that fits into your busy day. 

What diets is this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Lasagne suitable for?

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Lasagne can be enjoyed on gluten free diets, as long as you substitute the lasagne sheets and beef stock cube for suitable alternatives. 

If you’re cooking for people with allergies, be extra careful when checking ingredients and preparing food!

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Lasagne recipe?
