This past weekend we hosted Game Night for a few of our friends. I tried to keep the menu simple with lots of finger foods to munch on, and without a doubt, the Mini-Pulled Pork Sandwiches were the hit of the night. The secret ingredient? ROOT BEER!
1- pork shoulder or pork butt roast ( about 3.5-4lbs)
1- can of Root Beer ( I used A&W)
3Tbsp. Brown Sugar
1Tbsp. Freshly Ground Pepper
2tsp. Garlic Powder
1tsp. Onion Powder
I know this seems like a lot, but it's the perfect combination of spices-trust me!
This recipe couldn't be simpler. No browning of the meat here. Just put the pork roast into the crock pot and pour in the root beer. In a small bowl, mix together your spices and massage it all over your pork.
Done. Could this be any easier?
You won't even need BBQ sauce on these, they are just that delicious.
Of course, if you want to freeze this...because it makes a lot, then let it cool completely and place it in a Ziploc Freezer bag. Lay it flat in your freezer and it will take up less space. Then, the day before you want to eat it, place it in your refrigerator and thaw. Warm the thawed mixture in the microwave or a sauce pan set on medium heat until heated through.
Yum! Ok, go try this recipe NOW! You will thank me later.
