Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Pulled pork meets its clean eating match! Lean pork loin and a homemade BBQ sauce makes this typically unhealthy dish a nutritional and flavour winner. Using a leaner cut of pork makes this healthier without compromising taste as the slow cooker process, and bold flavours from the BBQ sauce deliver maximum flavour.
