The secret to all the juicy flavor in the pork is Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer. YOU GUYS…I am OBSESSED with this stuff. Crabbie’s originated in Leith, Edinburgh, and Scotland, and has made it’s way to the states and I couldn’t be more excited. Obviously, I love to drink it. It’s the perfect combination of crisp and refreshing; made from a secret recipe of four special ingredients! I love that it’s not too sweet; making it the absolute best mixer for cocktails OR cooking! It adds a fizzy ginger flavor to this pork that just can’t be replicated and I hope you give it a try!

Ingredients
  • 2.5 lb. pork butt/shoulder roast
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon course sea salt
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 3/4 cup Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • cabbage slaw carrot chips, and kimchi (I got mine in the produce section of the grocery store) for garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. Rub pork with garlic, sea salt, and soy sauce.
  2. Place pork in a small slow cooker.
  3. Pour in the bbq sauce and ginger beer.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high 3-4 hours.
  5. Once tender and cooked through, remove from the slow cooker and place on a plate. Use two forks to shred the pork. Return to the slow cooker and stir completely to cover in all the juices.
  6. Keep on warm until ready to serve.
  7. When ready to serve, place pork on buns topped with cabbage slaw, carrots, and kimchi if desired. Pork is also delicious as a topper on nachos, in tacos, or by itself!

I love meals that call for the slow cooker in the summer. Not only does it cook while you're gone, but keep the house from getting so hot. Pulled pork sounds great for dinner tonight!

I am assuming that you have been paid to develop a recipe featuring Crannies Alcoholic Ginger Beer and may not be quite as obsessed with it as you claim, but I am also obsessed with ginger beer (the alcoholic kind), and am thrilled with this recipe. Plus, I think that the alcohol element really enhances the cooking process when it comes to meat, so will gladly hunt down Crabbie' s product. For those of you not familiar with the healthful properties of raw ginger, it does wonderful things for your stomach and digestive process. I had had stomach ulcers for years, and if I missed even one dose of promises, a medication that turns off the production if stomach ulcer, had agonising burning pain. I went into treatment with a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, who tested me and filled a new prescription for an herbal tea each week. I drank it twice a day. The prescription always prominently featured fresh ginger. After a year of treatment, I was able to stop taking multimode and have been pain free for over 10 years. Obviously making this recipe once in awhile will not provide a therapeutic dose of ginger, by I encourage your readers with stomach ulcers or digestive issues to try drinking ginger tea daily for the health benefits. It is delicious, a natural anti-inflammatory, and will really help. It is cheAp too, if you buy fresh ginger root and make your own tea (cut off a couple of quarter size slices of ginger, and infuse it with 6 to 8 ounces of boiling water for about 10 minutes. Lemon and honey are incredibly delicious additions).

Oh, dear, I have quite the struggle with auto correct. That was NONalcoholic ginger beer I am obsessed with - love the sweet sour play, and prilosec was the Medicine I was on for ulcers.
