Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 8-1/2 hours
Needs tweaking, about 6 to 7 hours in the slow cooker. Add a rub onto the pork. I used cajun spice, salt, pepper and a bit of tumeric. Tastes pretty good but you have to add flavor that isn't just sweet to the dish
I’ve never made this before, but our family loves pulled pork sandwiches. It was AMAZING! So happy I tried it, and unbelievable EASY:-). My husband raved about it! Added a couple beef bullion cubes. A must make recipe! ( I personally used slow cooker, for about 6 hrs)
I added the root beer to the pork and let it sit in the fridge for an hour. I then put the pork, root beer, and my homemade barbecue sauce all together in the crock pot to cook. The flavor turned out good.
I loved this with the modification of one of your reviewers in adding garlic salt etc. I think you may have removed the review though.
Great recipe! I ended up seasoning the pork shoulder with salt, smoked paprika and chili powder then seared it before placing it in the crock pot. After it was cooked and shredded I took 1cup of the juice I strained and put aside and mixed it with 1cup of bbq sauce then mixed it in with the pork. Delicious!!
dont waste your time on this recipe. i followed the directions and got nothing but a tasteless piece of meat. it was also difficult to chew and i had to spit it out. even the bbq sauce could save it. ten bucks down the drain.
When I make this, I mix a Tablespoon each of salt and chili powder, rub the pork with it, and sear it on all sides before putting it in the crockpot. I would highly recommend this step. I didn't do it one time, thinking it wouldn't make that much difference, but it sure does! I also use just 1 C. of barbeque sauce.
The pork turned out nice and tender- very tasty! I did add some beef broth for a little more moisture but otherwise very good!
Very tender. Definitely need the barbecue sauce for flavoring.
The Best Pulled Pork Ever! My husband isn't usually a fan, but absolutely loved this! I used the cheap Walmart Root Beer. I tossed all the juices & removed the fat. It tore apart nicely! I used our Favorite BBQ sauce that could make the difference for the ones who like spice. I used Head Country, Original. Warmed it & just used Sesame Seed Hamburger buns. Served with Cole Slaw. Total perfection! I will make often & for guests!
