Taking a dive with dark Beer Pulled Pork with caramelized onions

  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!

Hmm the smell of the pork cooking away, is sooo good.

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! 😀

The pretzel buns are ready to go!

  3. Let your pork shoulder marinate overnight for a more intense flavor, or put it in your crockpot straight away.
  4. Set the timer to 9 hours on low or about 4-5 hours on high.
  5. In the meantime slice your onions in rings and heat the butter in a pan on medium heat.
  6. 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.
  7. As soon as the pork is done, take it out, shred it and toss it with as much sauce as you desire.*
To assemble the buns
  1. slightly toast your pretzel buns, top with pork, onions and the coleslaw and serve with a nice cold beer!
  1. * you can reduce some of the sauce or thicken it with cornflour for more flavor
