I’m not a big fan of pulled pork only because I hate the texture of stringy meat. Chris however, LOVES pulled pork so I thought I make him some at home. And since this was my first time making it, I thought I make it easy on myself. There are only three ingredients here so it can’t get any easier than that. I figured any leftovers, I can get creative and make something else with them. Since I’m not a fan of stringy meat, I didn’t shred my meat. Instead, I cut them into small pieces and it was delicious! For anyone who doesn’t care for stringy meat, this is a good way to have “pulled” pork. Enjoy!
- 1 (4-5 pound) bone-in or boneless pork shoulder or pork butt
- 1 (12 ounce) bottle of beer
- 1 (18 ounce) bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
Place the pork in a slow cooker and pour the beer in over the meat. Cover and cook for 6-8 hours or until tender.
Once the meat finishes cooking, discard the cooking liquid. Shred the meat with two forks or cut the meat into small pieces and place it back into the slow cooker. At this point, you can pour the barbecue sauce over all the meat or you can pour it over half of the meat. You can save the remaining half without barbecue sauce for something else, which is what I have done here. Stir well to combine. Serve immediately or keep warm in the slow cooker until ready to serve.

Yep, I LOVE pulled pork sandwiches. This one’s got beer so by default, my fav. 🙂

I have some pork in the fridge that I have to use up — and I was planning on making pulled pork. This looks easy and I like your idea of chopping rather than shredding!
Thanks Barb! 🙂
Sounds easy, looks good! I will give it a try!
Thanks Sheryl! 🙂
When you said “3 ingredients”, Anne, you weren’t kidding. This is incredible and your idea to set some pork aside, without sauce, is a good one. And I just happen to have a small pork butt in my freezer. Oh, boy!

Huh, I’ve never had pulled pork. Think it’s probably more of an American thing. Bet I would love it.
Yes, I believe so.

It’s quick to prepare and the beer is an added bonus. 😉 Thanks Judy.

I’ve long to cook with beer. And this is such a great recipe to start with. Aren’t you tempted by your own amazing creations? Because I am thoroughly impressed. 🙂
You’re too kind, thank you for that lovely comment Danny! 🙂
I never ordinary pulled pork before but your recipe sounds very appetizing & tasty too! I must make this recipe soon! 🙂 YUmmm!
Neither do I but I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. Although it’s not really pulled pork since I cut them in small pieces rather than shredding them with two forks. Thanks for commenting Sophie.
Love pulled pork! Made my first one just 3 weeks ago! Will try the beer (Guiness) next – had it marinated in spices & honey last two times.
Love the idea to add the beer. I have some local micro-brew in the fridge and a pork shoulder in the freezer, I see a marriage soon!
I know, I love to cook with alcohol! Tastes great and it’s fun! 😀
