I got the idea for this recipe from a Taste of Home Slow Cooker cookbook. In the original recipe, you add the sauce with the fully cooked pork. For me, this is way too much sauce, and I didn't care for the taste of the sauce. So I used our favorite bottled BBQ sauce, and just added it to my sandwich. If you like a lot of sauce, you could just add in your favorite homemade or bottled sauce at the end and heat through, or just add your favorite sauce to the sandwich like I did. Regardless, this is a must try recipe. The root beer gives the pork a surprising flavor! Enjoy!
Favorite Pork Sandwiches:
(From: Taste of Home Everyday Slow Cooker & One Dish Recipes 2010)
1 boneless pork loin roast (about 2 lbs)
1 medium onion, sliced
2 tbs minced garlic
3 cups Root beer, divided
1 bottle (12 oz) chili sauce
1/8 tsp hot pepper sauce
Place roast in a 3qt slow cooker. Add the onion, garlic and 1 cup of the root beer. Cover and cook on low for 9-10 hours or until meat is tender. In a small saucepan, combine the chili sauce, hot pepper sauce and remaining root beer. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until thickened. Remove meat from slow cooker; cool slightly. Discard cooking juices. Shred pork and return to slow cooker. Stir in barbecue sauce. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve on buns or kaiser rolls.
