Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Burgers

Hi there!! How’s life treating you this week? Everything is great (but buussssy here). Mind you, everyone’s always busy nowadays, right!? Anyway, I wish I could take credit for todays recipe – geez I wish I could. But nope, this one is all thanks to my hubby.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Burgers

You see, I LOVE baking. Ask me to make a cake, a slice, some biscuits, or a dessert, and I’m literally like a pig in mud. But ask me to make dinner and I’m all like ‘Why?…. Why?…. Oh why do we have to cook dinner every single night!!??’. I’m not the greatest fan of cooking dinner (which is pretty much why we eat a lot of frittatas, sushi, quick pastas etc).

Dave on the other hand, is an absolute kick-ass savoury cook. When I first met him (which was 13 years ago!!), he would cook me dinner on a Friday night and he would always make either lamb wraps or ravioli with store-bought pasta sauce. They were literally the only two meals he could make. Thank goodness over the years he’s pretty much completely changed into quite the MasterChef (and he’s going to kill me for saying all of this!!).

On the weekends, Dave is our kitchen-whizz. He’s the total opposite of me when he cooks. He takes his time, is really particular… and makes the HUGEST FREAKING MESS EVER. But that’s a whole other battle I’m not even going to tackle. I just love that he cooks me dinner.

These Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Burgers are a favourite of his to make. I always get excited when I see him whip out the slow cooker on a Saturday or Sunday morning – because there’s a fair chance these yummy burgers are happening. The pulled pork has the most amazingly sweet sauce… and the meat literally falls apart in your mouth. Amazing!

Dave usually serves these on toasted burgers or rolls with the BEST Asian slaw you’ll ever eat (a must-make). Oh and because he’s not the slightest bit fussed about carbs, there’s generally crispy potatoes on the side too. You can see why I love it when he cooks, right!? I definitely married well!

And so there you have it – Dave’s Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Burgers! You absolutely MUST make these. Or better yet, get your hubby or kids to make it for you.

      Fantastic! Enjoy xx

  4. Pulled pork is the best! And so is having a husband who cooks for you – I wouldn’t know 🙂

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hahaha yep he’s definitely a good hubby!

  5. Sophie says:

    Hi did you use a shop bought bbq sauce or make your own?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Just a store bought one!

  6. We have been loving making pulled pork in the slow cooker lately, and Dave’s recipe looks like a must-try, Lucy! Oh you definitely did marry well – pretty sure 99.9% of hubbies don’t do dinners that are this good!! 😉

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hehe I sure did! He’s a keeper 🙂

  7. Looks so yum! I don’t have a slow cooker but I do have a pressure cooker. Would it work in that?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Sanch, I haven’t made it in a pressure cooker (as I don’t own one) so I wouldn’t want to say!! I’m really not sure – sorry!

  8. Emma says:

    Hi, recipe sounds YUM! Unfortunately I don’t have a slow cooker. How would I adjust for a fan oven?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Emma, this recipe is specifically for a slow cooker. You could try placing it into a casserole type dish (with a lid) and cooking on a very low temperature in the oven. 🙂

  9. Heart says:

    This is so good. A new twist on burgers that will definitely be a big hit. Yum!

  10. Lucy, those photos make me want to reach in and grab one of those beautiful sandwiches! I think my husband would be happy to have that for dinner every day!

  11. Yum! We’re about to buy a slow cooker. Will definitely try out Dave’s recipe!

  12. YUM!!! WE love pulled pork here too but I’m going to show this to my hubby so that he can learn how to make it too! x

  13. Colleen says:

    Could I substitute beef for pork, if so what. Ut?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Absolutely!!!! Slow cooker recipes tend to work best with cheaper cuts of meat – so you could choose any cheaper cut of beef.

  14. Kryshia says:

    Hi, I want to put this on while I’m at work, could I do it for 8 hours in low!?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Absolutely!! xx

  15. Simone Galea says:

    Hey!! I am loving the look of this recipe. I am wondering what fillet of pork I buy? Do I leave the skin on or is it best to take off? I am going to the butchers after work and I’m not sure what piece of meat to buy!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Simone, hmm generally there’s only one type of ‘pork fillet’ at the supermarket and butchers I go to! It’s a long and skinny one if that helps!

  16. Sheree says:

    I know this will sound pretty obvious, but to serve more just double the recipe? Same cooking time? X

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yep that should be fine!! As long as you can fit it all in your slow cooker!! xx

  17. Helen Johnston says:

    This is so yummy. I made it for our family because the meat was on sale at the supermarket. The sauce was amazing. figure licking. It would have been even better if I had a good coleslaw to go with it but my husband and my daughter didn’t complain about my simple version. This will be a a family favorite from now on. Thank you so much.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!!! Thanks Helen! I’m so glad you liked it!! This is a yummy slaw that goes really well with it too (if you make it again!):
