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.

How incredible does this look!

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!

Serving Suggestions

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.

Wimbledon brewery tower SPA for the pulled pork recipe

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 often cook with Beer in the slow cooker – admittedly usually with beef. The flavours work so well for low and slow cooking.5 stars
