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.
My 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.
Here’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
- 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! 🙂
