Big V's Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork

Recipe by  

"A wonderfully easy, exceptionally tender pulled pork recipe. The meat literally falls off the bone and the marinade adds an excellent flavor that can complement any BBQ sauce. This recipe is great if you're looking for a make-ahead meal. Pulled pork is great served on fresh baked rolls or pita bread with sharp cheddar cheese and coleslaw. You can serve the pork as is or mix in your favorite BBQ sauce."

  1. Mix beer, mustard, honey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, cayenne pepper, and salt in a bowl until honey is dissolved. Pour a small amount of the beer marinade into a slow cooker; add pork. Pour remaining marinade over pork. Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning pork occasionally.
  2. Cook pork on Low in the slow cooker for 8 hours, basting occasionally. Add water if the pork becomes dry. Drop onion around pork and continue to cook until pork is very tender, about 2 hours more.
  3. Pull and shred pork with two forks, discarding any pieces of fat. Transfer pork to a serving dish. Skim remaining onion from the slow cooker using a sieve and add to pork.

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If frozen, thaw the pork roast in your refrigerator.
  • For best results the roast should begin marinating the evening before you are planning to serve this dish. Unless you are looking for a lower fat recipe, do not remove the fat from the roast at this point. The fat adds flavor and helps keep the meat moist and tender.

This recipe is great and because I was looking for a flavor that had some barbeque undertones, I took the suggestion of adding barbeque. After I shredded the pork, I took the juice that it cooked in, placed it in a pot and added one large bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Original. I must say that I made 25lbs of pork for a party and that was why I used the large bottle. You can adjust your recipe by taste. It was just enough to add the barbeque flavor to the delicious cooking juices.
