Slow Cooker Beer Pulled Pork

When I find a recipe that is a true winner. Really delicious. Super easy. I just have to share. This is the recipe I made for the BBQ I hosted last weekend. When hosting a lot of people I don't like tying G to the grill all afternoon so I always look for a good crock pot recipe. Even in the summer! This was the perfect recipe for summertime. Just throw this pork on a bun, grab some veggies and pasta salad and you've got yourself a nice meal to eat outside. And seriously, it's so easy. Please try this. You won't regret it. It makes a lot. So much that I sent some home with people and froze some. My brother and SIL used their leftover pork to make nachos so we did that Tuesday night!


1 (5 pound) pork butt roast
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer (such as Shiner® Bock)
1 (12 ounce) bottle barbeque sauce (such as Sweet Baby Ray's®)

1. Set the slow cooker to High.
2. Place the pork in the slow cooker. Season top of pork with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Pour beer into the bottom of the slow cooker and place the lid on the slow cooker crock.
3. Cook pork on High for 1 hour. Reduce slow cooker heat to Low and cook for at least 8 hours or overnight.
4. Remove pork from the slow cooker and shred with two forks. Discard juices and rinse out slow cooker crock. Return shredded pork to slow cooker and stir barbeque sauce into pork.
5. Cook on Medium for 1 hour.

I used Belle's Brewery Amber Ale because I had no idea what Shiner Bock was and couldn't find it anywhere. Then we went to dinner Saturday night and saw Shiner Bock on the menu!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
