Ok, well today it was the hubby-to-be’s day to cook us something good. We had taken a roast pork loin from the freezer and defrosted it, and we decided to use the slow cooker.
The aim was to make some kind of pulled pork to have in brioche buns with homemade slaw and homemade potato wedges.
However, it did not go according to plan!
We started well with the pork. While I was at work, the man of the house made a rub for the pork. He rubbed it all over and left it to marinate in the fridge overnight.
The following morning we put it in the slow cooker and put it on high.
After several hours, it was still a roast joint and didn’t pull apart! So, he then had to slice and chop it up to make smaller pieces.
However, it still tasted good thankfully!
This is what he used for the rub marinade.
- Cayenne pepper
- Light Brown sugar
- Garlic powder
- Smoked paprika
- Black pepper
- Chili powder
Unfortunately he cannot remember the quantities but I’m sure if you run a search online for a good meat rub, you’ll come across this or something similar.
The end product was delicious, however, I was too tired to make the edges and slaw, so the family just grabbed what they wanted and made rolls with it.
It also made the best sandwich as pork and pickle with a spicy twist!
