Wimbledon Beer Pulled Pork Recipe

July 20, 2016Sew White

Pulled pork is incredibly popular at the moment and making it in a slow cooker is really easy. The Beer Pulled Pork can be used in so many different ways but a family favourite is using it in burgers.

Beer Pulled Pork

I like to make a lot of pulled work and use it throughout the week in different meals. I worked with Wimbledon Brewery on this recipe and cooking the pork in the beer worked so incredibly well for flavour.

Pulled pork is so simple to make and by cooking it just with beer and a few herbs the taste is beautiful.
I love how it’s easy and can feed a lot of people. Slow cookers are magical machines!

There are so many wonderful things you can serve the beer pulled pork with including fresh crispy salads, adding it to a pasta sauce or even with roast potatoes and fresh veg.

A beautiful fresh crunchy coleslaw made with red cabbage and carrots is a wonderful addition to the soft burger bun and pulled pork.

I used Wimbledon Brewery’s Tower SPA to cook the pork shoulder in. It has a fruit, floral spice and orange smell with a full, rounded taste with a bittersweet finish.

I would really recommend a visit to Wimbledon Brewery. They do tours and tastings and on Saturday have a food and beer market. You can also buy their beer online. It’s definitely worth getting a few extra bottles to enjoy with the burgers!

    I LOVE pulled pork (your picture looks incredible by the way. My OH is a veggie so whenever we go out I have to have meat. I may have to give this a go when he is away with work! Delicious, I have bookmarked this recipe!

    I often cook with Beer in the slow cooker – admittedly usually with beef. The flavours work so well for low and slow cooking.

      I haven’t tried it with beef yet but will give it a go.

    Lovely recipe – I do like slow cooked pulled pork – the cooked does all the work for you and you can then fill the freezer. Just delicious.
