Consider this for your family or friends. It’s easier than most
meals without a lot of side dishes to make or clean up involved.
Pork is inexpensive and leftovers can be frozen. It’s a great
patio meal and everyone likes pulled pork. Your guests will find
it intriguing that you cooked the meat in root beer.
5 pounds carnitas or any pork roast
Enough root beer to amply cover meat
2 bottles barbecue sauce
Put meat into slow cooker and add enough root beer to make sure it
is well covered. Don't worry about adding too much. Let simmer
on LOW for about 8-10 hours.
Pour the meat and juices into a colander in the sink, letting
the liquid run down the drain.
Put the meat into a large bowl;
pull the meat apart into shreds with two forks, discarding any
fat pieces that you find.
Add all the barbecue sauce, and stir it in. The meat will have
cooled by now, so when it is ready to serve, re-heat it in the microwave.
Serve on hamburger buns.
If you want a truly Southern sandwich, put a layer of cole slaw
on top of the meat before adding the top slice of bread.
