Pulled Pork Pita Dinner

We don’t use that much our slow cooker, I have always been somewhat skeptical of leaving something on in our house as we head out the door. And yet the few times that we end up using it I just think they are great. In what a dilemma I find myself, right.

I admit that slow cookers and busy hectic families can have a very good relationship to say the least. Since we prefer to eat at home instead of eating out, we tend to take advantage of the slow-cooker does days when we know we will be spending most of our day out, but still have time to come home for a homemade dinner. This is exactly the case and recipe that we are sharing with you today.

We set our Veggies, stock (beer in this case) and pork all into the slow cooker for a tasty pulled pork dinner, so as we come back home, with little to no effort we enjoy a homemade meal.

Ready in: 25 Minute + 6hours cooking  -   |  Serves: 6 - 8  |  Complexity: Easy
Ingredients
  • 4 to 5-pound boneless pork shoulder / butt
  • 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup beer of your preference (more if needed)
  • 1 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp kosher salt, plus more as needed
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 to 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 2 Cups Finely shredded iceberg
  • 1/4 Cup Blue Cheese Crumbs
  • Multiple Pita breads
Directions
Pulled Pork Pita Dinner

  7. Now, return all shredded meat into the slow cooker, add barbecue sauce, mix well.
  8. Cook for an additional 20 minutes (optional)
