There’s nothing that I like more than an easy recipe and most of the time when I’m looking for one, I head to my favorite crock pot recipes and usually it is a chicken or a pork recipe that I go to. Why? Because they are two of the cheapest meats that you can buy so I usually have a freezer full. For us, one of our favorite meals is our favorite and super easy pulled pork sandwich recipe. It’s super easy and absolutely delicious! It’s simply one of the best easy pulled pork sandwich recipes that I’ve ever tasted and after you try it? I’m positive you’ll agree.

I’ve seen a lot of different recipes for pulled pork sandwiches that use cola, but this one uses something a bit different. What, you ask? Root beer! I’m not a huge root beer fan but in this recipe, it is amazing! It really gives your pulled pork a flavor like no other. This recipe is great when you really do just want to toss something in your crock in the morning to let it cook all day. It is pretty much hands off once you get it going.

For what its worth, you can also make this recipe with shredded chicken or turkey. Beef can be used too but it just isn’t quite as tasty. We used Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce for this latest batch, but you can use any bbq sauce that you want including your favorite homemade bbq sauce recipe. Usually I use my recipe, but the day we made this was a hurried day so I was feeling rushed. As long as you’re using a quality sauce, it won’t matter too much to the taste. This is my absolute favorite crock pot recipe, second only to my easy chicken thighs and veggies recipe.

Start by rinsing your pork loin in cold water (to remove blood, etc) and place in your crockpot. Then, slice your onion into large slices and toss in the crock.

Next, pour 2.5 cups of the root beer over the pork loin and onions. You can use any brand. We just happened to have A&W on hand.

Season with salt and pepper then cook on low for 6 hours.

Once your meat is cooked thoroughly, remove it from your crock and place it on a baking sheet. Using a fork, shred the pork into whatever sized pieces you prefer.

After the pork is shredded, combine the BBQ sauce, honey and the rest of your root beer in a small mixing bowl.

Pour over your shredded pork and toss to coat it. You don’t have to get every single piece, but try to make sure that the majority is covered. Place your cookie sheet into a 400 degree oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until your pork is a tad bit crispy. You don’t absolutely have to bake it, but it really does “finish” the meal.
