Pulled Pork Sandwich

Recipe: Simple Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


  • half of a pork butt/pork shoulder (one half should be about 4 lbs)
  • 1 bottle dark beer (I prefer Guinness)
  • 1 bottle BBQ Sauce (I prefer Dinosaur BBQ Sauce)


  1. Trim the fat cap from the pork butt and trim any other large areas of external fat.
  2. Place the pork butt in the slow cooker. Pour bottle of beer over pork butt.
  3. Cook on low, 6 to 8 hours.
  4. Remove from slow cooker. Discard liquid. Shred pork butt and mix with bottle of BBQ Sauce.

Personal Notes

The are several ways to sever pulled pork. Pulled pork sandwiches with coleslaw on top (or on the side) are great. So are pulled pork tacos and pulled pork pizza.
