Slow Cooker Maple Pulled Pork

Slow cooker maple pulled pork has deliciously subtle maple flavors, a touch of spice from chili powder, and tangy apple cider vinegar. With only 6 ingredients, you can get it on to cook in 10 minutes or less. I'm sharing three recipes that you can use your pork in, making this perfect for meal prep!

  • 2-3 lb Pork Shoulder (boneless pork butt is a great option)
  • ½ onion (sliced)
  • cup maple syrup
  • cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder


  • Place onion slices on the bottom of slow cooker.
  • Place pork shoulder on top.
  • Whisk together the maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, salt and chili powder.
  • Pour over the pork.
  • Cook on low for 8 hours, or until pork is fall-apart tender.
  • Remove pork from slow cooker and place in a large bowl (reserve cooking liquid). Shred with two forks or an electric hand mixer. Toss with cooking liquid to taste (I used at least half of the cooking liquid).


store in the fridge for up to 4 days. I recommend reheating in a frying pan with some of the cooking liquid for 5-10 minutes until loosened up and warmed through
