BBQ pulled pork, chicken and beef is one of my favorite treats in the summer at fairs. If you do not like pork you could make this with chicken or beef and use 2-3 large chicken breasts and cook down the same way but probably not as long. I would cook the chicken maybe 4-5 hours until it falls apart like pulled pork. If you use beef I would use a chuck roast or even a sirloin tip roast and cook as long as the pork. I use Tessemae's bbq sauce because there is no high fructose corn syrup and is all natural, NO MSG and all good fats. I get this at Whole Foods. You can pick up Virgils root beer at Giant Eagle, Whole Foods or Naturally Soergels if you live in PA.
Ingredients
  • 2-3lbs pork loin
  • 1 can of root beer (I used virgils but for sugar free you can use Zevia root beer) I do not recommend Virgils stevia sweetened root beer, not as good as Zevia.
  • ½ bottle of Tessemae's Matty's BBQ Sauce or your favorite bbq sauce
  • 1½ cups tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or 2 tsp stevia for sugar free
  • 2 tablespoon minced onion
  • ½ cup ketchup (make your own or I use simply Heinz which does not contain high fructose corn syrup)
Instructions
  1. Place pork loin in a crock pot with 1 can of root beer and cook 5-7 hours on high until pork is tender.
  2. Make your bbq sauce by mixing in remaining ingredients and set aside.
  3. After pork has cooked 5-7 hours drain root all juice and add in bbq sauce and cook an additional 30-45 minutes on medium heat in crock.
  4. I serve with homemade coleslaw which is just a bag of coleslaw mix and the dressing is as follows: 1½ cups mayonnaise 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper and a ½ tsp of stevia. Make dressing first and then add in coleslaw mixture.
