How to make it
- Season the pork on all sides and brown it in the pot with the oil. For some reason, my pork came in 2 large slabs, about 1.5" thick each. If your pork is a single piece and thick, it may take longer to cook.
- Once browned, pour in the beer. I actually only had 4 of the Winter Ale, but added a bottle of Holiday Porter, so the beer was pretty strong-flavored, not a light flavor. I imagine using something like Bud or something lighter would result in a lighter flavor. Add the tequila for a little extra flavor.
- Once it's cooked (falls apart with fork), remove the pork from the pot and move to a cutting board. Pick through it to remove any fat, bone, etc., and shred it up while doing so. As it's shredded, put aside into a container, and it's ready to use.
- Serve on soft corn tortillas as a soft taco with salsa and lettuce, or on a flour tortilla with salsa and sour cream as a burrito. It's delicious. I found a Key Lime and Garlic salsa that was especially good with this meat. Enjoy!
