Slow Cooker Barbecue Pulled Pork with Mango Salsa

 

This is a modified version of a recipe that my husband's cousin makes, and it is a show-stopper! I use a dry rub on the pork and use beer as a cooking broth, which will leave your home smelling insanely delicious. The bright flavors in the mango salsa compliments the savory pulled pork, and you can alternate serving this recipe as sandwiches, sliders, or tacos.

What you will need

2.5-3 pounds pork butt (shoulder)

1 1/2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika (1tsp goes into spice rub, 1/2 goes into cooking liquid)

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin (1tsp goes into spice rub, 1/2 goes into cooking liquid)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 bottle of beer (I used Newcastle Brown Ale)

4 garlic cloves (smashed)

2 bay leaves

1/2 cup BBQ sauce (I used Annie's Sweet and Spicy)

salt to taste

soft corn tortillas, soft regular or slider rolls

2-3 just ripe mangos

1/2 jalapeno pepper

1/4 red onion

1 lime

1 handful of fresh cilantro
