Pulled Pork Ingredients
- Pork Roast. I recommend using an inexpensive cut of pork such as a pork roast, pork shoulder or pork carnitas.
- Root Beer. You can also use Coke or Dr. Pepper. I recommend NOT using diet soda.
- Seasoning. Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Dry Mustard, Salt and Pepper.
How to Make BBQ Pork Sandwiches
- Place pork into the crock pot
- Sprinkle pork with seasoning.
- Pour in 2 1/2 cups of root beer, pouring to the side of the roast so you don’t wash off the seasoning.
- Cook on low for about 5- 6 hours or until it pulls apart easily.
- After it is cooked, drain off the liquid and shred the meat.
- Drizzle your favorite BBQ sauce over the meat and then return to the crockpot and allow to cook for about one more hour.
- Serve BBQ Pork on a bun and top it with a little more BBQ sauce.
