IngredientsSlow Cooker Sweet Pork

1 – 2.5 to 3 lb pork loin or boneless pork shoulder roast (we used pork loin)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 medium onions quartered
3 – 12oz cans of root beer (not diet)
1 cup bottled chili sauce


Place pork in slow cooker, add in onions, salt, pepper and 1 can of root beer. Cover and cook on low heat 8-10 hours or high heat for 4 to 5 hours. In the last 30-35 minutes of cook time, in a medium saucepan, combine the remaining 2 cans of root beer and 1 cup of chili sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce and boil gently, uncovered until preferred consistency stirring occasionally.

While the sauce is setting up, transfer pork and onions from slow cooker to a large bowl or disposable tin pan (we opted for tin pan) and shred the meat using two forks.

Once the meat is shredded and sauce is done, combine the two in the bowl or tin and mix. When finished serve on buns with your favorite toppings!
