Here’s this week’s fast and easy dinner that you can throw all in one pot.

Don’t worry about the beer, it’s totally kiddo-safe. The eight hours of slow cooking pretty much cooks out all the alcohol. And since I’m always looking for different pulled pork variations, this beer version provides a lighter version than the one I made here.

Although, as you can see,  I didn’t stay light all the way through, I stacked it with some crispy onion rings and layered the bottom portion of the sandwich with a thick slather of mashed potatoes–because why not? And I skipped the cole slaw for some romaine lettuce so there wouldn’t be too many competing flavors.

Of course, you can finish off your pulled pork as you see fit, but I highly recommend the version you see here. It’s killer.
