During the winter months I often use the slow cooker to have dinner ready when I get home from work. This recipe is very easy and my kids tell me it is better than the pulled pork from Texas Roadhouse.
1 cup beef broth
1 liter of rootbeer (or a little more if need to cover the meat)
1 minced garlic clove
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. coarse ground pepper
3 pounds of pork shoulder
Trim all the fat off the pork and pierce with a large fork. Place in slow cooker and pour liquids over the meat. Add garlic. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Remove from cooker and use 2 forks to pull meat apart into shreds. Dump liquids from the cooker. Return shredded meat to slow cooker and turn up to high. Add 1 small bottle of BBQ sauce (we prefer Sweet Baby Rays). Toss meat until well coated with the sauce and then continue cooking in slow cooker for 30 to 45 minutes.
Serve on toasted hamburger buns or as the main dish with some garlic red potatoes and grilled veggie skewer on the side. Enjoy!!
