The Year of No-Fuss Cooking {Pulled Pork}

You have probably noticed that chicken is our go-to meat for main dishes. However, I try to mix it up occasionally. Today's no-fuss meal is an American favorite:  Pulled Pork Sandwiches. This recipe is easy and takes minimal ingredients. For my non-cooking friends, it's pretty difficult to mess this one up. =) Enjoy!


1 - 3-4 lb. pork shoulder roast
12 oz. root beer (I use Henry Weinhard's)
1 bottle bbq sauce (We generally go with Sweet Baby Ray's)
Salt and Pepper


Put the pork and root beer in a freezer bag, or directly into the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker and shred with forks. Mix the pork with bbq sauce. You can use the liquid from the slow cooker to get the pork to your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper and serve on a bun with coleslaw.
