Rootbeer Pulled Pork

IMG_1653

Okay let’s just start by saying that this post seems a little contradictory since I love pigs, almost as much as I love cows. Yet I eat them both. So what do I have to say for myself?! I choose to be ignorant and not  think about it too much. But for those of you that are vegetarian….read no further! Speaking of pigs, I will forever be trying to convince my hubby to let me get a miniature pot-bellied pig. Okay THEN I will stop eating pork. Some of you may have already turned up your nose at the thought of a pet pig (pun intended… haha) but let me plea my case to you. After all….the more practise I get at convincing other people the better my odds are at home. Pigs can be trained to do more tricks than dogs because they are extremely smart, so much as to be placed fourth in rank of intelligence. The order being: humans, primates, whales than pigs. Not only are they very smart, they are hypoallergenic, and litter box trained. What more could you ask for in a pet? I even tried to bribe my husband by saying I would cook him bacon everyday for a year if he let me get a pig. To my dismay, my begging still hasn’t swayed him yet. In the meantime I guess the only pig I’ll have will be sandwiched between two buns! This recipe is by far my favourite. It’s packed with flavor, healthy and a great sidekick to fresh coleslaw. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 can rootbeer
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 lb boneless pork roast

Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients except roast in the slow cooker and mix well.
2. Add roast, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours. Then remove roast and shred meat.
3. Place meat in large bowl and add sauce mixture to the meat. (That way you can choose your desired thickness)

Serve on warm buns aside a fresh salad. Enjoy!
