Prep Time20 minsCook Time3 hrsTotal Time3 hrs 20 mins
The meat
 2 kg minimum of pork shoulder (or similar cut)
The Rub
 1 tbsp ground black pepper
 1 ½ tsp cayenne pepper
 2 tbsp chili powder
 2 tbsp ground cumin
 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
 1 tbsp dried oregano
 4 tbsp paprika (best if you can mix smoked and sweet types)
 2 tbsp table salt
 1 tbsp granulated sugar
 1 tbsp ground white pepper
For after the rub
 1 bottle of good quality BBQ sauce
 1 tin of kidney beans
 1 stick spring onion
1

Mix the rub ingredients thoroughly in a bowl first.

2

Massage the rub ingredients into at least 2kg of pork shoulder and leave it for at least 3 hours.

3

Then put the meat into your rice cooker bowl.

4

Close the lid and select the 'SLOW COOK' function on your rice cooker. Set the time for at least 3 hours. Really you can cook for as long as you want, the longer the better.

5

Once cooked remove the meat from the rice cooker bowl. Shred the meat with two forks and add the barbeque sauce. Voila, you have pulled pork!

6

Serve with freshly cooked white long grain rice and for some added flair you can optionally add some cooked kidney beans with a sprinkle of spring onions. This creates an extra dimension of flavour and an excellent source of plant based protein.
