The goal of a good pulled pork is slow cooking and moisture. My way of making pulled pork is simple. Slow Cooker, 1 can of beer, a 5-6 pound pork butt, seasonings and a bottle of barbecue sauce.
My beer choice-Shiner Bock. My seasoning choice-salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders. My barbecue sauce choice-Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce.
Just put it in a slow cooker before you go to bed, and when you wake up the magic has happened. See for yourself.
Easy Pulled Pork Sandwiches
5-6 pound pork butt
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 can beer or ale
1 bottle prepared barbecue sauce
Turn the slow cooker to medium. Add the pork butt. Season top and bottom with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Pour 1 can beer into slow cooker, leaving seasonings on top. Cover and go to bed. Seriously, do this about 10 p.m. and go to bed. About 9 a.m. the next morning remove the pork and shred with a fork; discard the juice/beer and the remains of the pork butt. Rinse out crock pot with warm water and place shredded pork back in; pour the barbecue sauce over top and mix. Cover and turn to low and heat for about 2 additional hours. Serve on onion buns or any type you’d like. Makes about 16 very large sandwiches.
This recipe is perfect for a party, and you can even prepare 2 and feed around 30 people.
