    I make a slow cooker pulled pork too ( but I’ve always used water as my liquid — I’ll definitely try substituting beer next time (especially for football season)!

    I like this take on pulled pork! My slow cooker died a couple of weeks ago and we’re waiting until we finish moving before getting a new one, but I can’t wait to make this!! We have some Guinness laying around, and I think it would work very well with this.

      Guinness would be perfect!! Sorry to hear about your slow-cooker – what a bummer.

    Quick tip: instead of using 2 forks to pull apart the pork, throw the meat into your stand mixer bowl while it’s still hot. Attach your flat beater and turn on high. It’ll shred the meat in minutes 😉 Works great with chicken as well!

    If not having a slow cooker, they are not very common in Denmark, is it possible to make in a römertopf ?

    The best

    can a pork tenderloin be used instead of the roast?

      I wouldn’t use a pork tenderloin, it’s too lean and will likely dry out.

    I enjoyed this recipe. It was flavorful, and tender as advertised. But, I would like to make a comment about food safety. After two and a half hours, my ancient Rival Crock Pot had only gotten the internal temperature of the pork up to 90 degrees. This is an ideal environment for pathogens. I then turned it up to high for a hour, and got the meat up to 160 degrees. I suggest that, regardless of your cooker, at the start run it on high long enough to get the pork up to at least 150 degrees for half an hour, and then turn it down to low.
