Makes: 8 to 10 servings
Prep 15 mins Cook 8 hrs to 10 hrs  (low) or 4 to 5 (high)
Pulled Pork with Root Beer Sauce
  • 1 2 1/2 - 3  pound  pork sirloin roast
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  pepper
  • 1  tablespoon  cooking oil
  • 2  medium  onions, cut into thin wedges
  • 1  cup  root beer*
  • 6  cloves  garlic, minced
  • 3  cups  root beer (two 12-ounce cans or bottles)*
  • 1  cup  bottled chili sauce
  • 1/4  teaspoon  root beer concentrate (optional)
  •  several dashes  bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)
  • 8 - 10  hamburger buns, split (and toasted, if desired)
  •  Lettuce leaves (optional)
  •  Tomato slices (optional)

1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut roast to fit into a 3-1/2- to 5-quart crockery cooker. Sprinkle meat with the salt and pepper. In a large skillet brown meat on all sides in hot oil. Drain off fat. Transfer meat to cooker. Add onions, the 1 cup root beer, and garlic.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.

3. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a medium saucepan combine the 3 cups of root beer and the chili sauce. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 2 cups. Add root beer concentrate and bottled hot pepper sauce, if desired.

4. Transfer roast to a cutting board or serving platter. Using a slotted spoon, remove onions from cooking juices and place on serving platter. Discard juices. Using 2 forks, pull meat apart into shreds. To serve, line buns with lettuce leaves and tomato slices, if desired. Add meat and onions; spoon on sauce. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
