For the pork:

  • 4 lb. pork shoulder cut into 4 large pieces
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed and peeled
  • 12 ounces beer use your favorite, or substitute with stock, pineapple juice, apple cider or water


  • In a small bowl, combine the salt, pepper, smoked paprika and cumin and sprinkle evenly over the pieces of pork.
  • Place the diced onion and garlic in the bottom of the slow cooker, then place the pieces of pork over the top.
  • Pour the beer over the pork and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for about 6 hours or until tender enough to shred easily.
  • Remove the pork from the slow cooker and place in a large bowl. Shred with two forks and add salt and pepper, to taste. Add some of the liquid from the slow cooker for added moisture as necessary and enjoy!


  • This slow cooker pulled pork recipe also makes a great topping for baked sweet potato, nachos, or even pizza, or toss with bbq sauce and serve in sandwiches.
  • Pork will keep for up to 5 days in the refrigerator, so it's great for meal prep!
