Coffee and Beer Braised Pulled Pork
by the seat of my pants!

NOTE:  This pork roast is a two-step recipe, we covered the roast with Penzy's Old World Seasoning and charred the outside (this can be completed a day or two ahead for convenience). When ready to cook, add a bit more seasonings, some coffee and a bottle of beer. Then go and enjoy your day!

1 Pork Shoulder about 6 pounds (bone-in) - charred on a BBQ
Penzy's Old World Seasoning if desired, you may substitute your seasoning of choice.

1/2 c strong coffee
1 12 oz bottle beer (we used fat tire)
Garlic powder
Onion power
Salt (lightly, you will adjust after cooking completely)
a sprinkling of Sugar

Place charred roast in your slow cooker dish and refrigerate until ready to cook. When ready to cook, pour the coffee over the roast. Sprinkle with the garlic and onion powders.

Lightly salt and pepper the top and sprinkle with sugar. Pour the beer around the roast (not over the top, you will wash off the seasonings), cover and cook on low until very very tender. Eight hours or so.

Transfer the pan juices to a saucepan, reduce by about half. Chunk or pull the pork into serving pieces serve with small cups of juice for dipping.

  1. I don't know what that spice mixture consists of (we don't have penzeys) but otherwise I love this recipe. Grill then crockpot with coffee AND beer. Sounds marvelous. --Rocquie

  2. I adore pulled pork and this version sounds awesome. I'm just about to order from Penzey's so I'll give that seasoning mix a try.

  3. I have to copy this recipe, looks wonderful. I sure like a slow cooker, so easy for me when I work all day

  4. I've heard of cooking roasts in coffee or in beer (and I have great success with my beer stews) but I've never seen a recipe combining the two. What a great idea, Melynda! Your Pulled Pork looks amazing and I love slow cooker meals. Thank you for being a part of our Hearth and Soul Hop.
