Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Sometimes some of the best recipes are so simple.  These pulled pork sandwiches are the definition of simple and delicious.  Pork roast in the slow cooker with root beer all day, then drain, shred the pork and add your favorite barbecue sauce.  Heat through and done.  Happy delicious meal on the table with very little work.  I’ve been making these since before the husband and I were married (and we’re coming up on our 6 year wedding anniversary), and now the toddler enjoys them as well.  I usually sprinkle the roast with some of Penzey’s BBQ 3000 seasoning for a little extra deliciousness.  Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

1 (2 pound) pork loin roast
1 (12 ounce) can or bottle root beer
1 (18 ounce) bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
8 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted

Place the pork in a slow cooker; pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until well cooked and the pork shreds easily, 6 to 7 hours. Note: the actual length of time may vary according to individual slow cooker. Drain well. Stir in barbecue sauce. Serve over hamburger buns.
