Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Your guests will love the saucy little sandwiches you create from a pork roast that is seasoned and then slow cooked. Low and slow cooking gives you a pork roast that shreds with a fork! Top with coleslaw for a crunchy cool contrast.
2-3 lbs pork roast
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp chili pepper
1 onion, chopped
1 can root beer or 1 bottle of beer
1/2 cup barbeque sauce
3 cups of your favorite barbeque sauce (my favorite is Diana’s)
Trim all visible fat from pork roast. Mix together the salt, pepper, chili powder and garlic. Rub onto roast. Place roast in a slow cooker. Add the chopped onion, can of root beer or beer and barbeque sauce. Cover and cook on low until well cooked or until the pork shreds easily, 6-7 hours. Drain well and stir in the 3 cups of barbeque sauce. Serve over hamburger buns and top with coleslaw if you wish.
