pulled pork…sliders

so i have never really been a huge fan of pork but i must say these tasty little sandwiches may be the exception to the "rule". these are great since most of the day they are spent in the slow cooker and virtually have zero prep. i have made these for entertaining hungry ufc fans and family dinners.  also feel free to use regular buns…pictured here are sliders that i made up for entertaining.


2-3 pound boneless pork shoulder aka pork butt (i know right…butt is the best cut of meat for this recipe or i have used pork loin) 
1-2 cans or bottles of your favorite root beer (bargs is our favorite)
1 tablespoon of garlic powder or 1 clove pressed
1 bottle of your favorite bbq sauce (our preference is sweet baby rays…yum)
salt to taste

1. rub roast with salt and garlic. pour root beer into the slow cooker. then place roast fat side up inside the slow cooker. i prefer to have roast nearly covered. cook for time indicated. generally 9-11 hours on low and 5-7 hours on high.

2. after its finished cooking, remove from slow cooker and place on a cutting board that has an edge to catch any juice. use two forks to gently shred the pork and place back in the slow cooker on warm. add desired amount of bbq sauce and stir into the meat. you can add a tiny bit of water to help the sauce stir in. let sit for 5 minutes in slow cooker then serve on buns or sliders.
