This isn't a traditional BBQ or southwest pulled pork recipe - not at all... It's however full of fabulous flavor, and perfect for sandwiches.


Coarse salt 2 Tablespoon
Ground chili powder 1 Tablespoon
Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
Pork butt 2 Kilogram (4 pound)
Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon , divided
Garlic cloves 8 Medium , smashed
Chilies 2 Medium , chopped
Yellow onion 2 Medium , slice
Stout 600 Milliliter
Cider vinegar 1 Tablespoon



1. Preheat the oven to 300 degree F or 150 degree C.

2. In a small bowl, combine salt, chili powder, and cinnamon.

3. Coat pork butt with 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil. Rub the salt cinnamon mixture on all sides. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.


4. In a Dutch oven, heat remaining oil over medium-high flame until just starting to smoke.

5. Add pork and cook for 15 minutes or until browned on all sides. Remove to a plate and discard all, leaving 1 tablespoon of the fat in the pot.

6. Reduce heat to medium and add garlic, chilies, and onions. Cook until softened, but not browned.

7. Increase heat to medium high, pour stout and add pork back to the pot. Bring to a boil, cover, transfer to the oven, and cook for about 3 hours or until pork is tender and falls apart.

8. Remove the pork from the pot, place on a serving platter and remove any skin, fat and bones, shredding the pork with two forks.

9. Use a strainer to separate the remaining onion and chilies from the liquid left in the pot, then mix with the shredded pork.

10. Remove any fat from the liquid and add about a cup to the pork. Add the cider vinegar and stir to combine.


11. Serve on buns, with slaw, or in tacos and enjoy!
