This pulled pork could not be easier! I used a pork loin roast for this but you could used tenderloin. I trimmed off the huge slab of fat on the side but you don't have to. I also used about 16 oz of homemade BBQ instead of the bottled stuff. The pork turned out very tender! I served this on toasted hamburger buns with creamy slaw, pickles, and some hot sauce.


  1. Trim off excess fat, if desired.
  2. Place roast in slow cooker. Pour in can of root beer.
  3. Cook, covered, on LOW heat for 6 hours.
  4. Drain away liquid and shred pork with fork.
  5. Stir in BBQ sauce. Serve as desired.

Amazing good and surprisingly easy! What more do you need? I trimmed fat from bone in country pork ribs, poured on the root beer, and later removed the bone. The meat before the bbq sauce addition was a surprise. It was sweet & nicely flavored. Adding the sauce made good bbq sliders served with Jalapeno Corn Slaw #468395. Was this "true" BBQ? No, but it's easy, requires few ingredients, and is GOOD. That makes it a hit for my family. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef.
