Oohh this is so scary, posting my very first recipe on the internet, but I figured I have to take a dive into the deep sometime, so here we go! This is something I’ve been wanting to do for such a long time now, and ugh the perfectionist in me is just never happy with a recipe I make. It’s just never good enough, or I forget to write down which ingredients I’ve put in something. Alright okay, gonna take a dive now!
Ever since I got my crockpot for Christmas, I’ve been experimenting with different pulled pork flavors and combinations. So there are probably going to be a lot more pulled pork recipes. This first one I an experiment with some lovely Belgian beer, mustard, honey and paprika. To serve them, I choose to make my own pretzel buns, and boy that was a good decision! I’ll probably post the recipe for them later this week! 😀
- 500 gr porkshoulder
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 2 tbsp dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 -1.5 cup dark beer (I used Corsendonk Pater)
- 4 white onions
- 1 cup dark beer
- 1 tbsp butter
- pepper, salt to taste
- Pretzel buns
- Start with mixing everything together for the pork, except the beer.
- After that rub your pork shoulder with the mixture, use a spatula, spoon for this or just get your hands dirty.
- Let your pork shoulder marinate overnight for a more intense flavor, or put it in your crockpot straight away.
- Set the timer to 9 hours on low or about 4-5 hours on high.
- In the meantime slice your onions in rings and heat the butter in a pan on medium heat.
- Add your onions and keep stirring them untill they start to caramelize.Then slowly keep adding the beer untill it's evaporated/reduced. Season with salt and pepper.
- As soon as the pork is done, take it out, shred it and toss it with as much sauce as you desire.*
- slightly toast your pretzel buns, top with pork, onions and the coleslaw and serve with a nice cold beer!
- * you can reduce some of the sauce or thicken it with cornflour for more flavor
