I enjoy exercising, but I really enjoy being able to eat more because I exercise. These sandwiches are worth my time on the elliptical machine. I tried this super easy recipe for the first time this summer for a camping trip then whipped it up again last week. Really delicious as it is, or you can mix in your favorite BBQ sauce for something different. I served these on some homemade oatmeal rolls topped with coleslaw.
Root Beer Pulled Pork
Pulled pork made in the crock pot with a bottle of root beer as the cooking liquid. The pork turns out perfectly seasoned and with a hint of sweetness from the soda.
Place roast in your crock pot. Salt and pepper generously then pour enough root beer into the pot to barely cover your roast. Cook on medium for 8 hours or until the meat falls apart when pulled.
Remove roast from crock pot and allow the roast to cool before shredding into a large bowl. Pour some of the cooking juices over the pulled meat once it is all done. You can serve it like this or add your favorite BBQ sauce to the meat before serving. Leftovers freeze very well!

Rachel E says
My crock pot only has a high and low setting. Which one would be better?
You could use either but it just depends on the amount of time you have. High will cook in about 6 hours and low will cook in about 10 hours. Good luck!
Can I ask why I should not use diet Dr. Pepper? I am on low carb so I can’t do the sugar. Thank you.
The artificial sweeteners will leave a bad taste in the meat

Do you freeze the meat before or after you put on the bbq sauce?
Hey there my friend! Either option would work.
