Slow Cooker Guinness Pulled Pork Recipes

Simple.  Easy.  Delicious.

Yeah, I know you shouldn’t use beer or wine in a slow cooker.  The trick is to reduce the beer just slightly before using this as your braising liquid.

The Guinness reduction gives this pork a deep rich flavor without any bitterness.  And the low and slow cooking in your Crock Pot will give you the perfect fall-apart pulled pork you’ll ever have.

This pork makes great sandwiches or sliders and a really tasty topping for Irish Totchos.

This is sure to become a new go-to recipe.


If you need a pulled pork recipe that doesn’t use alcohol in the braising liquid try my Slow Cooker Italian Roast Pork.

  4. Rub the mixture all over the surface of the pork until well seasoned.

  5. Cover the bottom of the slow cooker with sliced onions

  6. Add pork to slow cooker.
