The secret ingredient in this recipe is the Root Beer. Just giving the pork a little bit of a sweet flavor makes it a real favorite. Honestly, every time I make this, people ask for the recipe. They are so surprised to see just how easy it is to make.
Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches
1 boneless pork loin roast, trimmed of excess fat (approximately 3 lbs.)
1 Tbsp oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 can root beer (3 cups)
1 bottle chili sauce (12 oz)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
12 Hamburger buns or rolls
In a large skillet, heat oil. Sear the roast on all sides. Place the roast in a crock pot with salt, pepper, onion and one cup of the root beer. Cover, cook on low for 6-8 hours.
In a saucepan, heat the remaining root beer, the chili sauce, salt, garlic powder and brown sugar on medium heat until bubbly. Stir occasionally until sauce has a glossy texture, approximately 8 minutes. Set aside.
Remove pork from the crock pot and discard the liquid. Shred the pork with a fork.
Spoon pulled pork onto really good buns and top with the sauce and cole slaw.
