Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwiches

February 23, 2014

2 Pulled Pork Sandwiches (8)

This is THE EASIEST and BEST pulled pork you will eat!  I love that it is so simple!!!  It is definitely a crowd pleaser!

NOTE: Since this pork takes 6 – 8 hours to cook, plan ahead – you might need to cook it the day before and then re-heat in the crock pot or microwave.  (Be careful not to overcook it and dry it out!)

2 Pulled Pork Sandwiches (4)

1 – 3 pound boneless pork roast

12 oz. root beer

Place pork roast in your crock pot with the fat side up (if there is any fat).

Pour the root beer over the meat.

2 Pulled Pork Sandwiches (1)

Cook on low for 6 – 8 hours.

Take the roast out of the crock pot, remove any fat, and shred with 2 forks. It should shred very easily.  If not, it needs to cook longer.

Drain the juice out of the crock pot and place the shredded meat back inside.

1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce –  I used half Famous Dave’s Rich and Sassy and Famous Dave’s Sweet and Zesty.  Amount depends on how saucy you like it.  I keep it on the lighter side and have the bottle of BBQ sauce available for people to add more if they prefer.

Stir in the BBQ sauce.  Keep warm until serving.

We love our sandwiches with Cole Slaw on top.  This is what makes it a “Carolina” Pulled Pork Sandwich.

This is the best and easiest Cole Slaw ever!  Thank you Karen Ostermiller!  A bag of  pre-shredded cabbage and a bottle of Litehouse Cole Slaw dressing.  (This is found in the produce department.)

Mix immediately before serving – otherwise it gets really soggy.  Mix dressing according to your own preference.

Servings:  I used a 3 1/2 pound pork roast and it made 12 sandwiches.
