Delicious! What's not to love about a recipe with only 3 ingredients that goes together so quickly and easily with minimal preparation? The root beer imparts a slightly sweet flavor to the pork and keeps it moist during cooking. My pork was fork tender after 5 1/2 hours on "low". After draining off the root beer, I stirred in a 19 oz. bottle of "Jack Daniels Honey Smokehouse" barbecue sauce and turned my slow cooker on "warm" until we were ready to eat. I served the pulled pork on whole wheat hamburger buns with a slice of American cheese...yummy! Thank you for sharing this wonderful, quick and easy recipe...it is definitely a keeper!

Made this for Christmas gaming night - yummy! Good on sandwiches, loaded nachos, sliders for the kids and other stuff too!

Easy to make, easy to transport, easy to make in bulk - great for the holidays or any pot-luck!

This is a super easy recipe, the pork came out very tender. We used sweet baby rays bbq sauce and it was delicious!

This was our first attempt ever at pulled pork and it was wonderful. We used Diet A &W root beer and sweet baby rays BBQ sauce. We served it with some baked sweet potato fries and a bottle of spanish red wine. It was a great and simple dinner with little mess and little fuss.

I love a good pulled pork sandwich and this one was wonderfully moist, tender and delicious. It's hard to believe that it only has three ingredients. I used a diet Dr. Pepper instead of the root beer because that was what I had on hand. I also used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. Yummy! I will be using this recipe often. Made for October 2010 Aus/NZ Swap.

Yummy and easy to boot! This is perfect for a busy day outside or away from the house. I let mine cook for 7 hrs and it even could have cooked longer with no bad effects. I used a brown sugar bbq sauce and I cut the recipe in half. Thanks for posting. :)

It's so easy to do. I made half the recipe cause I didn't have a full 2 lb of pork. I thought it would taste more root beer flavor. I used a low-cal barbecue sauce flavored with brown sugar. We ate them with smoked mozzarella and for me spicy mustard. My son didn't like it so I had to add ketchup to his meat. Thanks AZPARZYCH :) Made for 123 hit wonders
