Wimbledon Beer Pulled Pork Recipe
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.
The Beer Pulled Pork Recipe
- 1.5kg pork shoulder
- 1.3 litres of Wimbledon Brewery Tower SPA (4 bottles )
- 200ml water

- Pop the pork in an oven safe pot with a lid or slow cooker pot fat side up and add the beer. Sprinkle the pork with the sugar, herbs and spices. Cook in the oven at 125 degrees for 6 hours. Or pop in the slow cooker on low for 10 hours or overnight.

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.
A beautiful and delicious burger. Perfect for meals and also transports really well for picnics and in lunch boxes.
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!
