I am trying to get on board with some slow cooker recipes since it is getting ridiculously hot nowadays. I am just not super “crock pot savvy.” I tend to overcook things in the crock pot, & not everything is good or a pleasant texture when converted to a slow cooker. Meats are usually my safe bet, & this pulled pork was super easy & tender. The root beer & sauce helps make up for any dryness in the meat & this was enough to feed my small family for days! We used the meat for sandwiches & quesadillas. Yummy!

Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches


  • 3 lbs boneless pork roast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 (12oz) can root beer
  • 1 (18oz) bottle BBQ sauce
  • 12 hamburger buns


  1. Spray the inside of a crock pot with pan spray. Season pork roast with salt & pepper & place inside the crock pot.
  2. Pour can of root beer over the roast. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until shreddable.
  3. Shred meat. Save 1 cup of the root beer liquid from the crock pot, & discard the rest. Return the meat & 1 cup root beer liquid to the crock pot. Add bottle of BBQ sauce. Mix thoroughly. Heat mixture for another 30 minutes. Keep warm. Serve on a hamburger bun.
