Author: Wanda Baker


  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp coarse salt
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 5-7 lb boneless pork shoulder or pork butt
  • 1 medium sized onion sliced thin
  • 1 lime juice
  • 1 bottle beer 2-3 cups
  • Olive oil
  • Pam


  • In a bowl mix together cumin, pepper, salt, oregano, garlic powder and chili powder. Rub all over pork and let set in refrigerator covered overnight or for at least an hour.
  • Add a drizzle of olive oil and onions to a hot frying pan. Cook for about 5 minutes until starting to soften.
  • Using Pam spray inside of slow cooker. Add onions, pork, lime juice and beer. Drizzle olive oil over top and let it cook up to 8 hours for low or 5 hours on high. The pork is done with it flakes easily.
  • Remove from slow cooker and let sit for a few minutes on a baking sheet. Shred with two forks and add to serving plate or bowl. Pour additional juices from slow cooker over top including onions.
  • Serve with your favourite barbecue sauce and fresh buns.
  • Since we didn't have a slaw to go with the pulled pork, we put out some fresh toppers including: sliced red onion, cilantro, sliced fresh jalapenos
