This was one of the easiest and tastiest things I’ve made to date. You’ve gotta love those crock-pot meals! After a recent craving for pulled pork, and needing a meal that would serve a bunch of girls, I went for the good ol’ slow cooker for the rescue. It’s also rare that I make anything in the crock pot without adding beer, so this little piggy was marinated in Bell’s Porter all day long.
- 4 lbs pork butt or shoulder
- 1 12oz bottle of Bell’s Porter
- 1 18oz bottle of Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q sauce
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 tbsp of red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp of garlic powder
- 1 tbsp of paprika
- 2 tbsp of tomato paste
- salt and pepper to taste
Throw everything in the crock pot except the BBQ sauce. Cook on low for 10-12 hours, stir throughout the day.
About two hours before you serve, remove the bones from the pork. Shred the pork into pieces, and add in your bbq sauce. The mixture might be a little juicy, so you can remove some of the liquid before putting in the bbq sauce if you want the pork to be a little thicker.
Serve on slider or regular buns, or just eat it sans bread for those carb conscious readers.
