I made this one morning before work and when I came home and served it, all I had were slack-jawed full-bellied friends. Served on fresh buns, with a side salad made of spinach, strawberries, and red onions with a poppy seed dressing. All I can say is yum! But be warned, you will be full.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ pounds pork shoulder roast
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ⅓ cup chili sauce
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 pineapple rings, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle pepper flakes
  • salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup beer

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place pork roast, blueberries, chili sauce, vinegar, onion, garlic, pineapple, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper in a 4-quart slow cooker. Cook on Low until pork is slightly pink in the center, 8 to 10 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  2. 2 Transfer pork to a plate and shred with 2 forks. Mash the contents of the slow cooker with a potato masher until fairly smooth. Return shredded pork to the slow cooker and toss to coat in the sauce.
