Pulled Pork

There is nothing better than a Pulled Pork sandwich.  They work equally well at your Memorial Day cookout, as the main attraction at your favorite football teams tailgate or for New Year’s Day dinner. I love to load mine up on an onion roll, cover with sauerkraut (most people like to top with coleslaw, but they don’t know what they are missing) and finish off with some extra BBQ sauce.  And it wouldn’t be perfect unless I added tons of hot sauce.  Be prepared to make a mess.  Lost of napkins are a must on this one!

Pulled Pork
Recipe type: Main, Entree
  • 4-5 lb. shoulder or butt pork roast
  • 1 bottle dark beer (or apple cider)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup favorite BBQ sauce
  • Reserved drippings from pork
  1. Add all ingredients to your slow-cooker. Place heat on medium. Cook for approximately 7 hours or until the meat falls apart.
  2. Remove from crock and place on a large platter. Don't discard the juices. Start pulling meat apart for two large forks, removing any pieces of fat. Add to a pulled pork to a large pot on the stove. Add the BBQ sauce and a bit of the reserved juice from the crock. Mix together to the "wetness" you like your pork.

I like to serve mine on onion rolls with sauerkraut and hot sauce. Throw in some kettle chips, broccoli slaw and a cold beer and I’m all set for a full day of football watching!
