Slimming World Syn Free BBQ Slow Cooked Pulled Pork - Recipe

Every weekend I have decided to share a recipe of a meal that I have loved whilst on the Slimming World plan. When I am eating healthier I sometimes get bored of eating the same meals over and over, so I have been making sure I try out a few new recipes each week. Last week I shared my chicken fajita recipe and this week I made BBQ pulled pork in my slow cooker, it was syn free and delicious. 

sw friendly meal idea


  • Pork shoulder joint with all visible fat removed 
  • A 500g carton of passata
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 6 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp of mustard powder
  • 2-3 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 4 tbsp of sweetener
  • salt & pepper

To Make 
  • I removed all the fat off my pork joint and put it into the slow cooker. 
  • In a bowl, I added the passata, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, balsamic vinegar, sweetener and salt & pepper and mixed it all together. 
  • I then poured the sauce mixture over the pork making sure the pork was coated in the sauce. 
  • I then cooked on low in the slow cooker for 8 hours. 
  • When it was ready I removed the meat from the slow cooker and shredded it with two forks on a chopping board. 
  • I then added the meat back into the slow cooker and mixed it in with the remaining sauce.

To Serve
I served my BBQ pulled pork with slimming world chips (parboil chips for 5 mins then drain and transfer to a baking tray sprayed with fry light and cook for 30-40 mins in the oven). I also had salad, corn on the cob and pink slaw mixed with quark to make a coleslaw.

Slimming world friendly meal


I really enjoyed this meal and found it really tasty, really filling and so simple to make. My teen loved this meal too but my partner did not like it at all. I could not believe this meal was syn free as it tasted too good to be healthy!  As long as you remove all the fat from the meat it is totally syn free. I will defiantly be making this meal again. 

Have you tried this meal before? If so let me know what you thought in the comments below. 


  1. Sounds lush to me! I'm going to give it a go. Why did your partner not like it though? X

    1. It really is so good, I can't believe it is healthy. He is just picky with sauces and things so I think he just did not like the sauce it was in, unless something is covered in ketchup, gravy or curry he rarely eats it xx

  2. This is one my list to try hun. It looks deeeelish!! This week I am doing the curry with the mayflower curry sauce, I'm sure you have heard about it its all over social media. Plus I'm trying sticky ribs. I am going to do this one next week, shall let you know how it goes. xx

    1. It is really nice, not at all like 'diet' food. I love the mayflower curry sauce , tastes so much like an actual Chinese curry. Oh you will have to let me know what sticky ribs are like xx


Thank you for commenting I read and reply to every single one.
