Root Beer Pulled Pork

This past weekend, I made an easy, tasty meal with some root beer. It required 4 ingredients and a crockpot:

The 4 ingredients: pork loin, seasoning, an onion, and root beer.

Pork with seasoning, onion, and root beer in the crockpot.

After 2 hours on high.

After 4 hours on high.

Pork 4.5 hours later.

The juices after 4.5 hours. It had no sweetness, and was very savory. The aftertaste had a hint of root beer.

Shredding the pork, with a pile of fat at the upper right, and the onions in the middle of the top - I had to
cut up the onions so my 3-year-old would eat them.

Shredded with all but about 1 cup of the liquid mixed back in.  We've found it to be too juicy if all the liquid is used.

It's really that easy. I added more seasoning to the pull pork when I put it back in the crockpot for another half hour because a lot of the seasoning that I originally put on the pork came off with all the fat I cut off while shredding. Try this some day!

- pork
- bottle/can of root beer
- 1 cut up onion
- seasoning to taste

Add all ingredients together, and cook until meat is done. (Roughly 3-4 hours on high, 5-8 hours on low.)  Take out pork and shred. Reserve some of the liquid, and add the shredded pork and most of the liquid back to the crockpot. Add more seasoning if desired, as well as however much liquid you'd like. Cook on low for another 30 minutes. Eat.
