Healthy Mexican Thermomix Pulled Pork

The Mexican Slow Cooked Pulled Pork Thermomix recipe is one of the original Skinnymixers recipes.

Packed full of flavour with some simple spices, it is a crowd favourite in the Skinnymixers Facebook Group. For those following the Whole30 diet, it is an amazing compliant dinner recipe.

If you are new to slow cooking meats, don’t be concerned about putting the spice coated pork into the slow cooker without any liquid. You will actually find that the meat releases a lot of juices throughout the cooking process.

For Best Results with the Pulled Pork

  1. I recommend preparing the day before and allowing the meat to marinate overnight at a minimum.
  2. Fresh spices will also produce the maximum amount of flavour, as spices become dull over time.
  3. Don’t cook it overnight or you won’t be able to sleep through the amazing smell!
