Ingredients

1
3 lb. pork roast
1 Tbsp
cooking oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 medium
onions, cut into small wedges
1 c
root beer
6 clove
garlic, minced

SAUCE INGREDIENTS

3 c
root beer
1 c
tomato sauce
1/4 c
brown sugar
2 Tbsp
vinegar
1/4 tsp
cinnamon
1 dash(es)
cloves, ground
1 dash(es)
allspice, ground
8-10 hamburger buns

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Trim fat from meat. Cut meat to fit into a 3-5 qt crock pot. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper, rub it in. Sear meat in a skillet on all sides in hot oil. Place meat in cooker, add onion, 1 cup of root beer and the garlic.
2
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or if needed 4-5 hours on high.
3
While meat is cooking, whisk all the sauce ingredients together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 2 cups.
4
Transfer meat to a cutting board or platter. Pull meat apart,(I use 2 forks)into shreds. Transfer the onion to a platter, discard the juices.
5
Place the meat onto your buns and drizzle the root beer sauce over the meat.
6
* Do NOT use diet root beer - it really does not work well at all.
