For pulled pork:

  • 3 pound bone in pork shoulder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 cup green salsa
  • 1 cup beer I used wheat beer

For Chips:

  • 1/2 cup canola oil enough to cover bottom of skillet
  • 12 corn tortillas cut into 4 wedges each
  • sea salt
  • lime zest

For Goat Cheese Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • salt

Optional Toppings:

  • pomegranate arils

For pulled pork:

  • Season pork with chili powder, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and garlic (rub it all into the roast)

  • Sear pork on each side for about 5-6 minutes or until golden brown
  • Transfer to slow cooker and top with salsa and beer
  • Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours
  • Remove pork and shred, carefully removing bone

For chips:

  • Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat
  • Add tortilla wedges a few at a time and cook for about 1 minute then carefully flip and cook for another minute (oil should be hot enough to sizzle the tortillas right away but not hot enough to spatter or quickly burn)
  • Remove tortillas when crispy and place on paper towel to drain
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and lime zest
  • Repeat until all tortillas are cooked

For Goat Cheese Sauce:

  • Heat butter in skillet over medium high heat
  • Stir in flour quickly until well blended

  • Stir in goat cheese until melted and remove from heat
  • Add salt to taste if desired

To serve:

  • Add tortillas chips to plate and top with pork, cheese, pomegranate arils and other toppings as desired


I cooked the pork on low in my 4 quart multi-cooker for 9 hours
