Slow Cooker Root Beer Pulled Pork

So I found a better pulled pork recipe than before...and it turns out, my friend Amy of QuickFit, found the same recipe. And we made the same adaptions to the recipe, before even talking about it. And both our hubbies loved it.

I know, root beer in a pulled pork recipe sounds crazy. But, the original recipe has nearly 1,500 people on 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

  1. Season pork tenderloin with salt, pepper and chopped garlic. Place into slow cooker.
  2. Add chopped onions to slow cooker, and then add the root beer. 
  3. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 6-7 hours. 
  4. 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).

I don't think that sounds crazy at all, our favorite slow cooker recipe has a can of coke in it.
