Make slow cooker pulled pork for dinner tonight! Keep the house cool and still enjoy succulent, savory barbecue pork sandwiches for dinner.
6 pounds pork shoulder
1 sweet onion, quartered
6 cloves garlic, skins removed and smashed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 12 oz bottle or can light beer
18 ounces barbecue sauce, typically one bottle
12 hamburger buns
In a 6 quart slow cooker place the fat side down of the Boston butt. Add quartered onion and cloves of garlic to the slow cooker. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of the meet and pour a 12oz bottle of beer over everything. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 10 hours.
After the pork is done cooking, carefully remove the Boston butt from the slow cooker and place into a large serving dish. Remove as much of the fat off of the Boston butt as possible. Begin to shred the meat. Add 3/4 of the bottle of barbecue sauce to the shredded pork.
Serve 1/2 cup portions of shredded pulled pork on to a hamburger bun. Top with more barbecue sauce if desired.
