Crockpot Smoky Kalua Pulled Pork Recipe

Crockpot Smoky Pulled Pork

Remember that delicious smoky pulled pork you had at the last graduation open house? You know the one where they slow roasted an entire pig in a big smoker in the back yard? You can make a small batch in your slow cooker at home and it tastes just as good!

This recipe is moderately low-carb, but not necessarily by Keto extreme low-carb guidelines.

Scroll to bottom for full recipe card with ingredients.

This tender and juicy smoky Kalua pulled and shredded pork melts in your mouth and uses just three ingredients.

It is super easy to prepare, then let it slow cook in your crockpot. I started mine at 4 p.m. one day, flipped it over before bed time, and then shredded it into freezable batches the next morning.

This pork is great to use in this Smoky Pulled Pork Tacos for Two or Cheesy BBQ Pulled Pork Fries.

Use it for cold pork sandwiches, BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, or try some on top of a loaded baked potato.
