Slow Cooker Beer Pulled Pork
1 (5 pound) pork butt roast
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer or Cider
1 (12 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce (such as Sweet Baby Ray’s®)
Set the slow cooker to High.
Place the pork in the slow cooker. Season top of pork with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Pour beer into the bottom of the slow cooker and place the lid on the slow cooker crock.
Cook pork on High for 1 hour.
Reduce slow cooker heat to Low and cook for at least 8 hours or overnight.
Remove pork from the slow cooker and shred with two forks.
Discard juices and rinse out slow cooker crock. Return shredded pork to slow cooker and stir barbecue sauce into pork.
Cook on Medium for 1 hour.
Additional Notes: I use a sharp knife and punch holes in the meat then I add cloves of garlic into the slits/holes then add a cup of Worcestershire sauce and let that soak overnight in a Ziploc baggie, in the morning disregard the Worcestershire sauce and cook according to above recipe.
