Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps

Here’s another slow cooker recipe, bet you’ve already guessed that I like slow cookers eh!

This delicious low-carb pulled pork recipe takes only 10 minutes to put together. After that, you’re free to do something else while your slow cooker transforms it into a nearly effortless melt-in-your-mouth dish your family will love.

For even tastier results, allow pork to sit in its yummy juices once you’ve pulled it apart. This will allow it to absorb even more of that great flavor!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 4.5 – 6.5 hours
Serves: 4


2 lbs. pork shoulder
2 t. onion powder
1 t. garlic powder
2 t. dried rosemary
2 t. smoked paprika
½ t. cayenne pepper
1 t. ground fennel seeds
2 t. cocoa powder
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1/3 c. organic sugar-free chicken broth
8 iceberg or butter lettuce leaves

  1. Combine all spices and the cocoa in a small bowl and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Rub the spice mix all over the pork shoulder and transfer to a 5 or 6-quart slow cooker crock. Add the chicken broth to the crock and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6.
  2. Once the cooking time is complete, use two forks to pull the pork apart while it is still in the slow cooker crock. Allow the pulled pork to remain in the juices with the slow cooker set to “warm” for 20-30 minutes to absorb more flavor.
  3. To serve, fill each lettuce leaf with some crunchy broccoli slaw and top with some pulled pork. Enjoy!

  2. Hello. This looks great, and would be great when the whole family comes to visit in a couple of weeks. Thanks for sharing.


  3. This looks amazing! I would not have thought of the fennel seeds – great idea.


  4. Maybe this is coming, but which slow cooker do you use? I’m in the market for a new one, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet.


      1. Ah, see? I didn’t look there. I’m allergic to oats and avoid oat recipes.

    Yum! I love pulled pork, and this sounds good. I’d leave out the cayenne pepper and fennel seeds, though.
