  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 medium onions, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 cup root beer
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 cups root beer (two 12-ounce cans or bottles)
  • 1 cup bottled chili sauce
  • 1/4 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)

Instructions

  1. Trim fat from meat. If necessary, cut roast to fit into slow cooker. Sprinkle meat with the salt and pepper. In a large skillet brown roast on all sides in hot oil. Drain.
  2. Transfer meat to a 3 1/2-, 4-, or 5-quart electric crockery cooker. Add onions, the 1 cup root beer and garlic.
  3. Cover; cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.
  4. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a medium saucepan combine the 2 cans or bottles of root beer and bottled chili sauce. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 2 cups.
  5. Add root beer concentrate and bottled hot pepper sauce, if desired.
  6. Transfer roast to a cutting board or serving platter. With a slotted spoon, remove onions from juices and place on serving platter. Discard juices. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds.
