LP's "Cheater" Pulled PorK

The word "cheater" in the title is for all my Grill it/smoke it guys. But really, this tastes out of this world and couldn't be easier. I wanted to try this root beer slow-cooker pork recipe I found, but all we have is diet pop and I didn't think it would work. So, I changed it up a little using real beer!

LP's "Cheater" Pulled Pork
Pork shoulder or loin with a good layer of fat
salt and pepper
beer to come half way up meat in cooker (I used 1 bottle for 2 pounds and 2 bottles for 5 pounds)
liquid smoke

Rub the meat with salt and pepper. If using loin, score the fat lightly. Place in slow-cooker and pour in beer, careful only to come up half way. add a few drops of liquid smoke to beer, cover and cook on low for 5 - 7 hours, until meat is moist, tender and pulls away easily.

Remove meat and keep warm. Use leftover liquid for sauce if making from scratch.

LP--did you use rootbeer or "real" beer? I always use beer and apple cider when I use my Tuscan Oven to make pork roast. I add onions, raisins, and apples...some mustard (not the yellow kind). I usually make this in the fall. The gravy is amazing!

Sounds good! I think I have a pork roast in the freezer...hmmm....

No, sorry, I used REAL beer, because I didn't have regular rootbeer, only diet. I think it turned out better than with the sweet rootbeer. The first batch I made was with a gluten free beer, much like an English Stout. The second batch I made to take camping and share was with Coors Light (the only other beer we have in the house!).

It really brought out the flavour of the pork and it was so moist and tender!
