Pulled Pork

Ingredients

  • 1 pork shoulder (about 4-5 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons Montreal Steak seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5-6 strips of bacon
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 can or bottle (12 ounces) dark beer
  • 1-1/2 cups barbecue sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Season all sides of the pork roast with Montreal Steak seasoning.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet (cast iron if you have one) and sear all sides of the roast.
  4. Place seared pork shoulder in a roasting pan.
  5. Pour apple cider vinegar over the top.
  6. Layer bacon strips on top of roast and place in oven.
  7. Bake pork shoulder for 5 hours, checking on it periodically and basting, if desired.
  8. When bacon is crisp and browned, remove it (and eat, if you’re so inclined).
  9. Pour beer over roast and bake an additional hour and a half.
  10. Remove from oven and begin tearing the meat apart in the pan, letting it soak in the pan juices.
  11. Stir in your favorite barbecue sauce, mix well and return to the oven for at least one more hour.
  12. Remove from oven, give the meat a stir and serve on your favorite buns or deli rolls.
