Pulled Pork with Root Beer Sauce

Pulled Pork with Root Beer Sauce
 
Root beer gives this slow cooked pork sandwich rich color and pleasant sweetness and makes it deliciously different from most other pulled pork sandwiches.
Ingredients
  • 1 2-1/2 to 3 pound pork sirloin roast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 medium onions, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 cup root beer*
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups root beer (two 12-ounce cans or bottles)*
  • 1 cup bottled chili sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon root beer concentrate (optional)
  • Several dashes bottled hot pepper sauce (optional)
  • 8 to 10 hamburger buns, split (and toasted, if desired)
  • Lettuce leaves (optional)
  • Tomato slices (optional)
Instructions
  1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut roast to fit into a 3-1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle meat with the salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet brown meat on all sides in hot oil. Drain off fat. Transfer meat to cooker. Add onions, the 1 cup root beer, and garlic.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
  4. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a medium saucepan combine the 3 cups of root beer and the chili sauce. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 2 cups. Add root beer concentrate and bottled hot pepper sauce, if desired.
  5. Transfer roast to a cutting board or serving platter. Using a slotted spoon, remove onions from cooking juices and place on serving platter. Discard juices. Using 2 forks, pull meat apart into shreds.
  6. To serve, line buns with lettuce leaves and tomato slices, if desired. Add meat and onions; spoon on sauce. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
