Root Beer Pulled Pork

My mouth is instantly watering as I write this post and drool
over the picture. I love good pulled pork and it was not until
I made this that I had great pulled pork. It's smoky and sweet.
Root Beer has always been a favorite soda of mine. For a special
treat..... make a Root Beer float to go along with this meal.

Root Beer Pulled Pork

2 to 3 pounds pork loin or roast
2 cans of root beer
1 onion sliced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon root beer extract
1/2 cup good quality BBQ sauce
salt and pepper
dash of garlic powder
potato rolls

Place pork, onion, garlic and spices in stock pot pour root beer & extract
all over. Cook on low on stove top for 4 to 5 hours until meat falls apart.
Drain the liquid and stir in the BBQ sauce. Serve with broccoli
slaw and potato rolls. Enjoy!
"Note, this could also be done in a slow cooker. I do not own one. YIKES.
I might have to stop by Williams Sonoma and get one.

  43. Just wanted to let you know that I made this tonight and it was fantastic! I decided to just do it on the stove top and it was so tender. After putting the BBQ sauce on, I thought it was going to be a little dry and than I tasted it - it was ANYTHING buy dry. It was moist and so flavorful!!! My husband loved it!
