I know, root beer in a pulled pork recipe sounds crazy. But, the original recipe has nearly 1,500 people on Allrecipes.com giving it 4.5 stars.
Trust us, it's good! And of course, easy. Because it's a crock-pot meal. My fav.
Root Beer Pulled Pork
1 (2 lb) pork tenderloin
1 can (12 oz.) root beer
1 medium onion, chopped finely
2 garlic cloves, chopped
Salt & pepper
Your favorite BBQ sauce (about half a bottle to full bottle, depending on how much sauce you like)
Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns
- Season pork tenderloin with salt, pepper and chopped garlic. Place into slow cooker.
- Add chopped onions to slow cooker, and then add the root beer.
- Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 6-7 hours.
- Drain juice from the slow cooker (keeping the onions in the cooker). With a fork, shred the pork. Add your favorite BBQ sauce, mix together and serve. (Sometimes it's easier to remove the pork and onions from the slow cooker and put into a separate bowl. Then, shred the pork, drain the juice out of the slow cooker and return the pork and onions to the cooker. Then add the BBQ sauce).
