Easy Pulled Pork Burgers

When I learned how easy pulled pork was to make, it was an absolute midweek dinner game-changer. Try it for yourself, with Easy Pulled Pork Burgers, made with Australian Pork.


1 brown onion, sliced thinly 

2.2kg pork shoulder 

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 

2 tsp smoked paprika 

1 cup BBQ sauce

½ cup tomato sauce

2 tbsp tomato paste 

2 tsp salt

½ cup water

For the pickled cabbage

2 cups red cabbage, sliced thinly

1/4 cup white vinegar

1 tsp salt  

For the burger

⅓ cup Japanese mayonnaise

6 brioche burger buns, sliced in half 

6 handfuls of large lettuce leaves


STEP 1: Preheat a 5.5 litre slow cooker on HIGH. Place onion on the base and place the pork shoulder over the onions.

STEP 2: In a medium bowl, whisk the Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, BBQ sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt and water. Pour over pork and place the lid on. 

STEP 3: Cook on HIGH for 6 hours until the pork easily pulls apart. 

STEP 4: Meanwhile in a small bowl, place the red cabbage, vinegar and salt. Sit for 15 minutes. Drain and set aside. 

STEP 5: Keeping the pork in the slow cooker, use 2 forks to pull the pork apart, coating it in the sauce from the base.

STEP 6: To assemble the burger, lay down the base of a brioche bun, then top with lettuce leaves, a thick layer of pulled pork, pickled cabbage, and a dollop of  Japanese mayonnaise. Add the top bun on to finish it off.
