1 pork roast
1-2 beers (depending on size and crock pot size)
Misc. seasonings, to your preference
This is a great lazy recipe, just like most recipes for a roast! Just pour the beer into the crock pot (liners are live savers!!), add the pork, and season the top. I usually do garlic salt, pepper, and Cookie’s seasoning. For the beer, I used a berry ale this time. But you can use whatever beer you have available. I’ve tried cheap beers before and dark ales, so feel free to be adventurous. It’s a good idea to turn the crock pot on and have it warming up before you add the meat so it doesn’t take too long for the meat to heat up to a safe cooking temperature. Food safety is important!! Once you’ve got the pork in, you’ll want it to be about half covered. This can just sit all day while you’re at work, or doing whatever you do during the day. 6-8 hours is a good time frame if you’ve got nothing going on for the day.
Once it’s done cooking, I use a colander to separate it from the liquid (it will hopefully be too tender to pick up) and move it into a bow to shred. If you’re feeling especially lazy, you can use a hand mixer to shred the pork. Also works with chicken or beef! From there, throw it on a bun and add your favorite BBQ sauce. My favorites around here are Sweet Baby Ray’s or Cookie’s sauces. Enjoy!
