Pulled Pork Sandwiches Recipe

Pulled pork sandwiches are in my top favorites when it comes to slow cooker recipes. The slow cooker basically does all of the work for you. The secret to this recipe is simmering the pork with root beer in the slow cooker. After the pork is finished cooking it is pulled apart and mixed with your favorite BBQ sauce. The meat is then put onto buns and topped with coleslaw. For the BBQ sauce and coleslaw, you can use your favorite recipe, or I would recommend my recipes for BBQ sauce and Coleslaw. If you want to save time you can buy them both from the store. This is another great recipe for game day. Enjoy.

1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin
1 (12 ounce) can root beer
1 (18 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce
8 hamburger buns

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: Place the pork tenderloin into a slow cooker and pour the root beer over the meat. Cover and cook on low until the pork falls apart and shreds easily (about 6 to 7 hours). Drain the juices and pull the pork apart with two forks until it is shredded. Stir in BBQ Sauce and warm in the slow cooker.
Step 2: Place some of the pork onto the bottom of each hamburger bun, top with coleslaw and place the other half of the bun on top.
(Makes 8 Servings)

    Is that pork shoulder? I know you said tenderloin but it looks a little different to me. Either way it 7:09 in the morning and my mouth is watering.

    Cookie – good eye, it is indeed! I shoulda mentioned you can also used pork shoulder or other types of pork roasts for this recipe.

    This was delicious. I had been looking for a pulled pork to make in the crock pot. It will be fun to play with different barbecue sauces. It seems to freeze great. I like to be able to put leftovers in the freezer for a future meal.

    I did serve it with my spicy coleslaw recipe

    I made this recipe yesterday. It was very good. A definite keeper. I’ll be honest, the whole family was a little hesitant about the root beer being in the meat. lol There wasn’t even a hint of the root beer flavor but it sure did make it tender. Thanks a bunch!
