Crock Pot Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches


Today I’m going to share a family favorite recipe that everyone in my house likes…even my picky kids. I first had this Crock Pot Root Beer Pulled Pork not long after moving to Texas, when my mother-in-law made it for a family gathering. It’s been a favorite of mine ever since.

Crock Pot Root Beer Pulled PorkMy kids love visiting the BBQ restaurant down the road. It’s probably their most-requested restaurant. But when we make these pulled pork sandwiches, they’re quick to tell us that these are WAY better than any restaurant food we might have. I totally agree.

Crock Pot Root Beer Pulled PorkHere’s how to make Crock Pot Root Beer Pulled Pork sandwiches.


  • 2 liters Root Beer
  • 3 pound pork loin (not tenderloin)
  • Hamburger buns
  • Butter (for toasting those buns!)
  • Coleslaw (recipe below!)
  • Favorite BBQ Sauce
 How to make it:
Dump Root Beer and pork loin in crock pot. Turn on low for 8 hours until internal temperature reaches 190 degrees.
Remove from crock pot and let sit at room temperature for 20-30 minutes. Shred. Serve on toasted, buttered buns with homemade coleslaw and your favorite BBQ sauce.
These go exceptionally well with Fritos.

Sweet & Tangy Coleslaw Recipe
Sweet & Tangy Coleslaw Ingredients:
  • 1 bag of shredded cabbage and carrots (16-ounce bag)
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Place cabbage and carrots in a large bowl. Whisk together remaining ingredients in a smaller bowl, then add to cabbage and carrot mixture.  Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

I hope you (and your kids) love it as much as we do! 🙂
