Slow Cooker Rootbeer Pulled Pork Recipe

This is a reader recipe sent in by Monique, who calls this particular dish her "one successful slow cooker recipe."

Your pork is MUCH MORE than successful, Monique---it's out-of-the-ball-park wonderful. I served 5 kids and 3 adults sandwiches with this meat (with a side of tater tots) and EVERYONE cleaned their plates.

Thank you, Monique!!

serves 6 (adult-size servings)


2 pounds boneless pork shoulder roast (butt)
1 large yellow onion, sliced in rings
1-2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce (start with 1, then season to taste after cooking and tasting)

1 cup chili sauce (near ketchup in the grocery aisle. if you want to make it, use 1 cup ketchup, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1 tsp chili powder---it's not identical, but pretty darn close)
2 cups root beer
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 hamburger buns or soft rolls (I make them myself, or use toasted Udi's white bread to keep it gluten free)

Use a 4-quart slow cooker. A 6-quart is fine, but your meat will cook faster.
Put the meat into your pot, and add sliced onion. top with Tabasco sauce, chili sauce, root beer, and vanilla. cover and cook on low for about 8 hours, or until pork shreds easily with a fork. I plopped my pork in fully frozen, and it took 10 hours on low to be shreddy.

Serve over rice, or on toasted breads or buns.

This is such a quick and easy recipe that makes everyone in the house happy. The rootbeer has a nice sweetness that really brings out the hint of ginger from the chili sauce. It's easily adaptable spice-wise, and is a great way to feed a houseful of people on a limited budget.
Thanks again to Monique for sharing her secret to slow cooking success!
