3 ingredient Beer Pulled Pork

Paula Todora


Not counting the seasonings, there are only 3 amazing ingredients in this "off the cuff" recipe I made one day. Now it's the only way I cook pulled pork. You can use any kind of beer or ale and any brand of barbecue sauce.
I use Shiner Bock beer and Sweet Baby Ray's regular barbecue sauce.

How to Make 3 ingredient Beer Pulled Pork


  1. Turn the slow cooker to medium. Add the pork butt. Season top and bottom with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Pour 1 can beer into slow cooker, leaving seasonings on top. Cover and go to bed.
  2. Seriously, do this about 10 p.m. and go to bed. About 9 a.m. the next morning remove the pork and shred with a fork; discard the juice/beer and the remains of the pork butt. Rinse out crock pot with warm water and place shredded pork back in; pour the barbecue sauce over top and mix. Cover and turn to low and heat for about 2 additional hours.
  3. Serve on onion buns or any type you’d like. Makes about 16 very large sandwiches.

    This recipe is perfect for a party, and you can even prepare 2 and feed around 30 people.
