Shredded Pork Sandwiches

READY IN: 6hrs 5mins
Recipe by Tinkerbell

The crock pot & your favorite bottled BBQ sauce or my recipe for Sweet -N-Tangy Barbecue Sauce makes cooking up these delicious sandwiches very easy. The meat is tender & practically shreds itself. I've been making this recipe for 20 years & always get rave reviews.

This is a good and easy way to make pulled pork sandwiches but I would change just one thing. I first cook the pork in my crock pot covered in root beer. Yes, you read that right, root beer. Once the pork is tender drain the root beer and shred the pork. Stir in your favorite barbeque sauce and let simmer 45 minutes to an hour and you will have the most tender and flavorful pulled pork sandwiches ever!
