Easy Pulled Pork


Looking for an extremely simple recipe to make for dinner? Look no further! These pulled pork sandwiches are easy AND delicious! 

Ingredients:
  • 1 pork tenderloin (or shoulder) - I use whatever is on sale
  • root beer (enough to cover the meat in the crockpot)
  • Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce (my personal favorite)
  • hamburger buns or kaiser rolls
Cover the pork with root beer and cook it in the crockpot for about 6-8 hours or until it shreds.

Shred the pork and add the barbecue sauce (the amount depends on your taste). 

Serve warm on the rolls. It doesn't get any easier than that!

    1. Sure! I think that anything that will give it a little flavor will work (coke, pepsi, etc...)

  3. Do you cook the port on high or low for 6-8 hours? This sound yummy. I will be trying tis soon!

    1. I'm pretty sure I cook it on low. It just needs to be cooked until the pork shreds. Enjoy!

  4. Do you put the bbq sauce in with the root beer, or after it is finished cooking?

    1. I cook it with just the root beer, shred the pork, then add the bbq sauce. :)

  5. Real






    Delicious though this may be, real North Carolina pulled pork barbecue does not use a tomato based sauce like Ray's. The real stuff is a vinegar/pepper sauce.

  8. You do not have to use HFC rootbeer. There are several brands of soda and root beer that use real sugar or even agave nectar (for those who cannot have cane/beet sugars). There are also great bbq sauces with all natural ingredients (Stubbs and Bone Suckin' sauce both use natural sugars). I know this is an old post but I was looking for a recipe to take to the beach house where I don't have the luxury of a pantry full of spices and condiments. This will be great for dinner with plenty for leftovers...anything to stay out of the kitchen on vacation!
