You can do SO MUCH with pulled pork!
Pulled Pork makes a great base for so many recipes; from pulled pork sandwiches to tacos, subs and sandwiches, nachos and even pizza!
Soft tacos are a menu item we eat all the time. Whether the tacos are chicken, beef or pork, it’s just the type of meal that’s easy to put together and can be customized to make everyone happy.

Since we are on the subject of tacos, Have you seen these Taco Boats?
We love, love love these little Soft Tortilla Taco Boats! The flat bottom and tall sides of “the boat” let you pile as much toppings as you want on your soft taco and everything stays in.
Perfect for little hands to hold and also great to use in our game day get-togethers.

Beer Marinated Pulled Pork
Beer helps tenderize the meat and adds a tiny amount of sweet and bitter flavor to the dish.
Most of the liquid stays in the pot and since you’re cooking the pork low and slow for several hours, most of the alcohol cooks away. (Simmering beer for 2.5 hours removes 95 percent of the alcohol it contains.) So you’re safe serving this to all age groups.
Use your favorite beer (in our case, it’s Michelob Ultra- gotta save those carbs where we can, ha ha!)
