We love the magic of the crockpot. It’s such an easy way to create delicious meals with minimal effort. The pumpkin beer adds a nice rich flavour to the pork. It roasts nicely in the crockpot and makes it easy to shred practically falling apart at the touch.
The caramelized beer onions add the perfect amount of sweetness with pickled cabbage for a pop of colour.
