Barbecue Pork

Today’s recipe is my version of barbecue pork. Who doesn’t love a good bbq sandwich? Of course I use my crock pot for this recipe. It also only requires 3 ingredients. So simple! It’s also delicious! This is great served with 5 cup fruit salad, macaroni salad (in the photo), or my potato salad.

Barbecue Pork | Only 3 ingredients!

Barbecue Pork
  • 1 (3 lb to 4 lb) pork roast
  • 2 (12 oz. cans) root beer
  • 1 (16oz-18 oz) bottle of barbecue sauce (I used Cattlemen's Smokehouse)
  • a little extra root beer
  1. Place you roast in the crock pot. Pour in the root beer. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove roast from crock pot and shred. Dump out liquid from the crock pot.
  2. Return shredded meat to crock pot. Add bottle of barbecue sauce. Then add enough root beer to make desired wetness. (This will all depend on how thick your sauce is, I probably add at least ¼ cup). Serve on buns or rolls. Serves 12- 16.

  • Oh my gosh, this looks heavenly!

  • I had to laugh when I saw this post…not because of the recipe (which I love!!!), but because I was just about to post this same recipe soon! (: I’ve noticed a pattern that way…I get these great recipe ideas to post, and then someone else beats me to the punch!–or in this case, root beer! (: I guess I’ve got to be quicker! (:

    This one really does taste good, and it’s so simple!

  • I love how carbonated drinks tenderize meat in the crock pot. I’ve never tried root beer, but my family loves it, so I plan on giving this a try!

  • When I saw this recipie this morning I was sure I was going to make it for dinner today, but then I found out I didn’t have any root beer on hand. I just love root beer and can’t wait to try this out. It looks super yummy. Thanks for sharing! In fact all your recipies look great.
